“Delighted to have finally completed my UEFA Pro License. Was a long process which goes back years into my playing days. Want to thank Neil Bailey for all his help over the years.”
Wayne Rooney, Manchester United’s all-time legendary forward has finally bagged his UEFA Pro License.
The manager of MLS side DC United, Rooney has finally obtained his Pro Licence after completing his coaching exams.
This feat undoubtedly showcases Rooney’s unwavering commitment to excel in the field of soccer management.
The accomplished athlete has made remarkable progress throughout the course, demonstrating a commendable level of dedication.
Rooney reportedly delivered a final presentation to obtain his Pro Licence, which is a significant milestone in his coaching journey.
He assumed the position of Derby County manager in 2021 at the age of 37, choosing to take on the managerial job without obtaining his coaching badges beforehand.
Despite this, he maintained his determination to pursue his studies and successfully did so while also serving as the head coach of MLS team DC United last year.
It is understood that he had to make a final presentation before he could be eligible to get a Pro Licence.
Successfully completing this examination marks a significant step towards Rooney’s aspirations of returning to British soccer as a manager, especially considering his contract with DC United concludes at the end of the current MLS season.
