DC Utd striker Rooney encouraged seeing Lampard, Gerrard in management

DC United striker Wayne Rooney is happy seeing former England teammates landing big management jobs.

Rooney admits the possible ­appointment of Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss and the ­impact Steven Gerrard has made with Scottish heavyweights Rangers has given him hope that a management opportunity will be on offer when the time is right.

Rooney said: “It is great to see that Frank and Steve have been given these chances at big clubs. That gives me hope too because I do think about these things. But for the time being, I am enjoying my life as footballer. I want to win more trophies.

“Physically, I feel good and I am still ambitious. But once my career is over, I am going to consider all the ­options."
