Former Man Utd cult hero could be set to reunite with Wayne Rooney at Birmingham City
The former England captain is the standout candidate to take over from John Eustace at Birmingham City and it appears that he is looking to bring in some familiar faces if he lands the job.
Wayne Rooney is expected to be joined by former Manchester United teammate John O’Shea when he takes over the reigns at Birmingham City.
The ex-England captain is the overwhelming favourite to take over from John Eustace at St. Andrew’s after announcing his departure from D.C. United. The surprise parting of ways with Eustace came after the Blues had made a strong start to the Championship season.
The Old Trafford fan favourite will be eager to quickly win over any sceptics over his appointment if he is named, with his predecessor having left the club in sixth place. To hit the ground running in the Second City, he will be turning to two familiar faces – including John O’Shea, according to the BBC.
The former Premier League stalwart has gained extensive coaching experience following his successful playing days with United and Sunderland. Rooney’s old club colleague is currently an assistant with the Republic of Ireland and also served under Alex Neil at Stoke last term.
