Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney has come out to say that he’ll not quit Derby anytime soon. He, however, revealed that the team needs more signings ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
According to him, he is still focused on bringing some dignity and pride back to the club, and it is now up to the club hierarchy to back him up.
Rooney added that it would be very easy for someone in his situation to walk away, but he is a fighter.
His words, “It’s other people which I can’t control who need to make bigger decisions than I do.”
“All I can do is try to bring some dignity and pride back to this club. It is clear that has gone in the last few years and it is my job to bring that back. I need other people to do their job.”
“It’s not ideal, it has been very difficult not knowing what my squad will be in two weeks’ time when the league starts. However we can, we need to get that sorted.”
“If I am being honest, it would be easy for a manager in my situation to walk away. It’s a challenge for me, I’m a fighter. I am grateful to Derby for giving me this opportunity and I will do everything I can to get the club through this.”
“If we can’t bring players in over the next two weeks I do not know how we field a team to start the season.”
“I haven’t got one centre-back signed to the club, there are two very young players in the U23s and U18s. It would be impossible for me to field a team.”
