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.

Rooney Party Girl Simpson Is Banned From Neville’s New Bar In Manchester

The 29-year-old party girl, whose car Rooney drove while drunk after they flirted in a bar, is said to be "furious" that she's barred from the venue after finding minor fame through the footballers' criminal act. The opening of Mahiki bar earlier this month saw VIP guests like David Beckham and Calum Best join owner and former England star Gary at the tiki-themed bar. Now Laura - who snogged a fellow party-goer in a Shrek mask last night - is absolutely raging after discovering she has been blocked from the swanky club. A source told The Sun Online: "Laura's name is on the banned list at Mahiki Manchester - she's practically the only person who's not allowed in and it's orders from high up not to let her into the bar. "She's furious about it - she wanted to go as it's only just opened, b...

Joe Hart Insists England are Lucky To Have Harry Kane

The Tottenham striker rattled home 13 goals for club and country last month and goes into Thursday's World Cup qualifier against Slovenia as the man most likely to deliver victory and a place in Russia next summer. Hart has shared a pitch with some of the biggest names in English football's recent history - from Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard to John Terry and Wayne Rooney - and is in no doubt who the current centre of attention is. 'Right now Harry is hot,' said Hart. 'He has (Mauricio) Pochettino, one of the hottest managers in the world, who regards him highly and there are reasons for that. 'Harry will keep being Harry and he will keep scoring goals. As long as he is in my team, wearing an England badge, I want that to continue. 'Whether he keeps his form, scores 40 goals or ends...

Kane Form Could Suffer With England Captaincy , Warns Hodgson

Harry Kane's form could suffer if he is made England captain, former Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson has warned. The Tottenham star is one of the leading candidates to be named permanent successor to Wayne Rooney, who confirmed his retirement from international duty in August. Kane, who captained his country against Scotland and France in June, has shared duties with Jordan Henderson and Gary Cahill this year and has expressed a desire to take the armband on a full-time basis. But Hodgson, who managed England from 2012 to 2016, feels the 24-year-old should be left to focus on scoring goals – which he did 13 times for club and country in September – rather than the responsibility of leading Gareth Southgate's team. "I'd like to see him scoring goals and doing what he does best as a centre-...

Ronald Koeman Confident Side Can Bounce Back Against Sunderland

The Toffees have played five of the last six matches away from home - including fixtures at both table-topping Manchester clubs and defending champions Chelsea - and have not won since August 17. However, they now face a run of four successive matches at Goodison Park and Koeman admits they need to take advantage to quieten talks of a crisis with the club 18th in the Premier League. The Black Cats, 21st in the Sky Bet Championship and with just one win in seven games themselves - which came in the previous round of the Carabao Cup against League Two side Carlisle - present the ideal opportunity after Sunday's 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford. 'We need to analyse the game but it is important to take the positives from Sunday and prepare ourselves for Wednesday,' said Koeman. 'We now play four...
