Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has dismissed speculations linking him with the Manchester United job.

Manchester United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday morning following Saturday’s embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford, our 5th defeat in our last 7 Premier League games.

When asked whether he will be interested in the Manchester United job, Rooney told Sky Sports: “As I’ve said before, I’m committed to this football club (Derby County) until someone above me tells me otherwise.

“I speak to people at Manchester United on a regular basis so I’m sure if they were to come calling it would have already happened. I’m committed to Derby County and until someone says ‘you’re not welcome to be the manager here’ I’m here.”

Rooney, who is currently Derby County boss, is not on the shortlist of managers being considered by the United board to replace Solskjaer.
