Wayne Rooney Given Interim Role At Derby After Cocu Dismissal

Phillip Cocu's time in charge of Derby County has come to an end, with Wayne Rooney being part of the coaching team that will take charge at Pride Park on an interim basis. The former England international has been working as a player-coach but could see his responsibilities increase somewhat following this news. All we know for certain at the moment is that Cocu has been shown the door after an abysmal start to the season in the Championship. The Rams currently sit rock bottom of the table, having picked up just six of a possible 33 points available. The former PSV Eindhoven and Fenerbahce coach, who took over at Derby from Frank Lampard after his departure for Chelsea, leaves the club with a record of 22 victories, 17 draws and 26 defeats in 65 games. Derby thanked Cocu a...

Eriksson Says Rejected Super Eagles Job Because He “Was Asked To Split His Salary”

Sven-Goran Erikson, former England manager, has revealed why he turned down the opportunity to coach the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. In an interview with Branschen.se, a Swedish website, Erikson said he rejected the offer after he was told by an official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) that his salary would be paid into two different bank accounts.

Sarri Under Fire for Dropping Hazard against Frankfurt

 Former Chelsea manager, Glenn Hoddle, has slammed current boss Maurizio Sarri, for dropping Eden Hazard to the bench against Frankfurt on Thursday night. Hazard was benched again for the first leg of their Europa League semi-final clash. Chelsea battled their way to a 1-1 draw in Germany, with Hazard introduced just past the hour mark. Sarri claimed the Belgian had been in need of a rest, but Hoddle believes a 19-goal player should be the first name on the team sheet. He told BT Sport: “I really for the life of me can’t understand why you wouldn’t play your best player in this semi-final. “They will only find out how important Hazard is after he is gone, unfortunately, because he is that good a player. “But let’s face it, without him in the first half they were ordin...
