DC United striker Rooney admits Man Utd ambitions

DC United striker Wayne Rooney admits he'd like to manage Manchester United in the future.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a former team-mate of Rooney's, guided his new side to a comfortable victory at Cardiff City.

Asked if he would consider coaching and would like to manage the club, Rooney said: "Yeah of course. I'm doing my coaching badges. It's something I'm passionate about.

"Football is what I know, what I grew up with. It would be foolish if I didn't try and go into coaching.

"If I'd like to manage Manchester United... of course! One day that would be my absolute dream if that could happen. It's a massive club.

"I'm sure Ole isn't giving us his true feelings but I'm sure deep down he is absolutely ecstatic.

"For any player who has played for Manchester united, to have the opportunity to manage them would be an absolute honour.

"Football is what I've done since I was a child, getting in the first team at 16. That's what I know. I'm not going to sit here and say I'm going to go into an office or be an agent."
