Wayne Rooney has recently made a surprising revelation regarding Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Rooney, widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s greatest players, has experienced mixed success in his managerial endeavors thus far.

While he had a decent stint at Derby County, his tenure at MLS outfit DC United lasted only 15 months, and he was recently dismissed by Birmingham City after winning just two of his 15 matches in charge.

Despite his recent setbacks, Rooney remains ambitious and has not abandoned his aspirations of managing at the highest level. In a recent episode of the Stick to Football podcast by SkyBet, the 38-year-old expressed his admiration for Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester United’s cross-town rivals, Manchester City.

Rooney confessed that he would eagerly accept the opportunity to work alongside the esteemed coach if the chance arose. He emphasized the influence of Guardiola’s coaching methods, citing Mikel Arteta’s success at Arsenal as evidence of the impact of learning from Guardiola.

Reflecting on Guardiola’s managerial prowess, Rooney praised his ability to continually adapt his tactics over time. He noted that Guardiola’s approach has evolved significantly over the years, leading to widespread emulation by other teams in the league.

Guardiola’s Manchester City team recently secured a 1-0 victory against Brentford, bouncing back from a 1-1 draw with Chelsea just days prior. As they compete for the Premier League title against formidable opponents like Liverpool and Arsenal, the race promises to be fiercely contested until the very end.
