BETFAIR have opened a market on Wayne Rooney’s next role in management.
And it’s no surprise to see boyhood club Everton installed as his most likely destination at 12-1.
Reports suggest Rooney, 37, has been contacted to discuss the possibility of replacing Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.
He was joint-favourite alongside Sean Dyche but has since drifted to 12-1.
Rooney has previously revealed he turned down the chance to manage Everton during his tenure at Derby in January 2022.
He said: “Everton approached my agent and asked me to interview for the job.
“I turned it down. I believe I will be a Premier League manager and I am ready for that 100 per cent. But I have a job at Derby, which is important to me.”
Rooney is still said to have serious reservations, and looks more likely to continue his development with DC United.
Wayne Rooney next club
- Everton – 12/1
- England – 16/1
- Leeds – 20/1
- West Ham – 25/1
- Cardiff – 33/1
- Leicester – 40/1
- Manchester United – 40/1
- Liverpool – 50/1
DC United finished last in MLS but Rooney insisted there is ‘no chance’ that would happen again in his first full season in charge.
The top job with England is the next most likely scenario at 16-1 with Betfair.
In November 2021, Southgate signed an extension to his contract as Three Lions manager which runs until December 2024.
Premier League duo Leeds and West Ham are next in the betting, priced at 20-1 and 25-1 respectively, marginally ahead of 33-1 chance Cardiff.
Leicester and Manchester United are tied together at 40-1, while Liverpool are the outsiders of the pack at 50-1.
