Former England captain Wayne Rooney has agreed in contract terms to become the new coach of DC United as he makes a return to Washington DC.
Rooney, 36, played for DC United in 2018 and 2019, scoring 25 goals in 52 matches, and was filmed arriving at Dulles Airport on Sunday night as he closes in on a return in the dug-out.
The Washington Post’s Steven Goff also confirmed that the former England striker has returned to the Major League Soccer team where he played in the 2018-2019 season.
The former Derby County boss landed at Dulles International Airport on Sunday at noon with the intention of finalizing details and signing his contract.
Rooney would take the place of interim coach, Chad Ashton, who would remain in the former Manchester United star’s staff of assistants.
