Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has bemoaned not given enough time after being sacked by Birmingham City.

The ex-D.C United manager won just 2 out of 15 games in charge taking Birmingham City from 6th to 20th in the Championship.

The 38-year-old was appointed on 11 October following the controversial decision to dismiss John Eustace, with Blues sixth in the table.

A heartbroken Rooney took to social media platform X to share his thoughts on the issue.

The Red Devils’ record scorer wrote “I would like to thank Tom Wagner, Tom Brady and Garry Cook for the opportunity to manage Birmingham City FC and the support they all gave me during my short period with the club. Football is a results business – and I recognise they have not been at the level I wanted them to be.

“However, time is the most precious commodity a manager requires and I do not believe 13 weeks was sufficient to oversee the changes that were needed. Personally, it will take me some time to get over this setback. I have been involved in professional football, as either a player or manager, since I was 16.

“Now, I plan to take some time with my family as I prepare for the next opportunity in my journey as a manager,” he said.

Rooney is now the shortest-serving Blues manager, in terms of time period, in their 132-year history.
