Rooney confirms he wants Derby manager job full-time & namechecks Man Utd legend Sir Alex Ferguson

 The 35-year-old is hopeful the Rams will give him the chance to follow in the footsteps of the likes of former England team-mate Frank Lampard

Wayne Rooney has made it clear that he wants to take over as Derby County manager on a permanent basis following Philipp Cocu's sacking, with the England icon having been installed as caretaker boss.

The Rams sit bottom of the Championship with six points from 11 matches so far this season, with only one win picked up throughout that run leading to Cocu's dismissal.

Skipper Rooney has been placed in temporary charge, adding additional responsibility to his roles as both player and coach, and the 35-year-old has left the club in no doubt as to whether he could see himself in the dugout full-time.
