Wayne Rooney has not given up on his dream of coaching in the Premier League and pointed to Everton and Manchester United as his dream clubs.

Rooney spent a combined 16 years at Goodison Park and Old Trafford as a player and admitted he would love to return to either club as a manager, despite a poor spell at Birmingham seeing him sacked after just three months in charge.

Manchester United great replaced John Eustace in October but was sacked last month after winning just two of his 15 games in charge and losing nine.

Birmingham were sixth in the Championship when Rooney was appointed, but when he was sacked they were just six points above the relegation zone.

But Rooney, who won just 14 of his 53 games in charge of DC United before taking charge at St Andrew’s, insisted the early setbacks in his coaching career had not fazed him.

“I definitely want to get back into coaching,” he said on BBC One, where he appeared as a pundit for United’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night.

“The goal is to eventually get to the Premier League, Manchester United or Everton are dream jobs, but it’s a process.

“In the next 10 years I hope to have the opportunity to occupy one of the most important positions.”

Rooney’s appointment is a major move by the American Knighthead consortium, which includes NFL great Tom Brady and took charge of the club last summer.

The experiment failed spectacularly and the former Everton star admitted it was “not the right time” to take charge of St Andrew’s.

‘What happened in Birmingham was a setback, but I’m a fighter and I want to do it again.

You know that as a manager, part of the job is getting fired and having setbacks, and it’s about how to bounce back.

Rooney singled out Everton and United, with whom he won 12 major trophies, as the clubs he would love to manage.

I have had time to reflect and know what to do next time. I’ve never signed a player for money so it would be great next time!’

Rooney, however, insisted he knew he would never win over the fans.

“Maybe it wasn’t the right time when I arrived at Birmingham, the fans didn’t accept me from day one,” he said.

The former England striker expressed the same sentiments when speaking in the latest episode of the Stick to Football podcast with sky bet last week.

“Birmingham City fans didn’t accept me from day one,” he said.

Rooney said he felt he was never accepted by Birmingham fans in his three months in charge.

“To be fair to him, John Eustace had done a good job, but they made the change and asked me to come in.

“I entered, but I immediately knew that the fans did not accept me.

“I think it was more because John Eustace had done well. They were in sixth place when he was fired.

“If you’re a Birmingham fan, it’s been the last ten years and they’re close to the play-offs (I know it was at the start of the season) and then they sack the manager.
