Wayne Rooney sacked as Birmingham City manager



Wayne Rooney named Birmingham City manager 

Wayne Rooney has been sacked as Birmingham coach, the club confirmed on Tuesday morning.

Birmingham have had the worst record in the Championship since Rooney took over for John Eustace in October.
They earned 10 points out of a possible 45, losing nine and winning two.

The former England captain is likely to have received a wage of less than £1.5 million per year.
The Manchester United legend had promised to battle on following Monday’s 3-0 loss at Leeds, but workers were summoned to a meeting at the club’s training complex on Tuesday.
The decision to hire Rooney will undoubtedly go down as one of the worst in the club’s history.

Birmingham was sixth on the league table when he was chosen to succeed Eustace in October.
He exits with the Blues only six points above the relegation zone and the division’s poorest record at that time.
This was Rooney’s third managing position. After stints in the Championship with Derby and Major League Soccer with DC United.
He was brought back to England to bring a ‘no-fear’ football philosophy to Birmingham.
