Royle: Rooney wanted one more season at Everton

Former Everton chief Joe Royle believes Wayne Rooney wanted one more season at Goodison Park.

Rooney's move to DC United was just confirmed last week.

Royle told the Daily Star: “There's a new boss, a new regime and they have their own ideas for the future of Everton.

“They have young talent so the new management team have made a quick decision and allowed him to go.

“Wayne came back to Everton for a little bit of a swansong and it possibly lasted a season less than he would have liked.

“But that's football."
