Derby County coach, Wayne Rooney has said he’d like to manage Aston Villa captain and playmaker, Jack Grealish.
The Manchester United legend admits that he would also have loved to play alongside the Aston Villa lynchpin during his playing days, but says he’d love to manage him now.
“I’d love to manage Grealish and if I did, I’d encourage him to express himself, to not be afraid of mistakes or giving the ball away, especially in the final third,” he told The Times.
“I’d also loved to have played with Jack.
“I was a player who studied defenders and when Jack takes the ball and draws them out of position, I would have been looking to exploit the spaces they left.”
