Derby County have been officially relegated to League One, following their loss at the lawns of Queens Park Rangers on Monday (1-0). The team coached by Wayne Rooney will develop into the English Third Division next season. For the first time since 1986.
The end of last hopes. Derby will not win its maintenance in the County Championship. Following their defeat at the lawns of Queens Park Rangers on Monday (1–0), the Rams were officially relegated to League One. The mistake of the draw was snatched in the extreme by Reading (4-4) against Swansea. A result that puts Wayne Rooney’s team, in the 23rd standings and is now mathematically unable to defend itself.
After being sanctioned with a 21-point penalty at the start of the season, Derby County have not managed to overcome this huge hurdle due to their own financial problems. The club has been developing into an antechamber of the Premier League since 2009. With the obligation to bail out his coffers to ensure his survival, he would find the Third Division for the first time since 1986.
Rooney casts doubt on his future
It remains to be seen what Rooney, whose contract runs until June 2023, will take on his role as coach since last year. In January, he declined an interview for the coaching job of his training club, Everton. This exile would probably encourage them to change air during the summer.
“The club must be acquired. If it doesn’t happen, the future of the club is uncertain and mine too. If the takeover happens, I want to rebuild the club, he started hot. C “is a special club, which But we are all proud. I want to be the one who brings back the happy days (…) We have paid the price the previous owner left behind.”
In an interview with The Sun last month, the former Three Lions striker said he had dreams of returning to the Red Devils. As for sitting on the bench: “I’ll be honest, the only reason I want to be manager is Manchester United. I’m not ready at the moment. But I have to plan everything to make sure it will happen one day.”
