Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney launches first big job since Birmingham sacking

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has announced a collaboration with former teammate Gary Neville’s The Overlap podcast. This marks Rooney’s first notable job since the legendary striker was sacked as Birmingham City’s manager. It’s worth noting that the Blues are owned by NFL icon Tom Brady.

The Overlap has become a popular platform in the field of football content. Rooney will reunite with his Manchester United former teammates, Roy Keane and Gary Neville. Other pundits, like Jamie Carragher, Micah Richards, Ian Wright, and more often contribute to the show from time to time.

Rooney let his followers know about the new gig on social media, writing on X (formerly Twitter):

“I am excited to announce that I will be joining my good mate @GNev2 and the team at @WeAreTheOverlap to appear on the channel across some of their brilliant shows on YouTube and the podcast. I can’t wait to get started.”

Wayne Rooney, since bringing the curtains down on his legendary playing career, has gone on to manage clubs like Derby County, D.C. United, and Birmingham City. Rooney’s spell at Birmingham, though, was short-lived.

The Manchester United legend was in charge of the Tom Brady co-owned Championship side for only 15 matches. He won only two of those games, drew four, and lost nine.

How many games did Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville play together for Manchester United?
