Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov feels Wayne Rooney is proving himself as the manager of Derby County and could become the next Everton boss.

The Toffees may soon be looking for a new manager with increasing pressure on Rafael Benitez. Merseysiders has endured a terrible series of results and has dropped to 14th place in the top class. It’s far from the start of the season when Benitez’s controversial appointment was overshadowed by decent results.

It’s all over now amid reports that fans will arrange a five-minute walk-out during Monday’s home game against Arsenal. There have been mixed messages about Benitez’s future.

Owner Farhad Moshiri backed the Spaniard on Thursday and suggested he would not be fired. But a report Friday claimed President Bill Kenwright convened for an urgent board meeting to Friday night.

No matter what happens, the former Liverpool boss knows he has to start winning matches, otherwise he’s out. Rooney began his career at Goodison Park before switching to Manchester United.

He returned to Everton for a season before switching to the United States with DC United. The former English ace came to Derby as a player-coach in the summer of 2019 and worked alongside Phillip Cocu.

The Dutchman’s firing caused Rooney to take the kidneys himself, but he has had to fight off the pitch in Pride Park.

Nightmares are getting worse for Rooney

Rams was handed a 12-point deduction on September 22 this year after joining the administration. And in November, they were hit with another nine-point deduction after admitting to violating EFL’s accounting rules.

They are bottom of the championship and 19 points from safety. Relegation seems inevitable but Rooney has been praised for sticking with the club.

Berbatov is a fan and sees no reason why his former team-mate should not control Everton.

“Rooney is doing very well in the Derby despite all the problems off the pitch,” he wrote on Betfair, pr FLW. “He’s had the taste of leadership, he knows what it entails and I’m sure he will think of a future in the Premier League.

“He is building up and I am sure he will soon become Premier League coach and Everton could be the next step for him.”

Rooney made it clear he wanted to be an Everton fan for life when he first signed for the club. And despite jumping at Old Trafford after two years, the ex-striker could have a big impact on the club.
