This announcement comes just three days after Rooney left MLS side DC United by mutual consent, following their failure to reach the playoffs.

Rooney, the former England captain, had initially stepped down without a confirmed job offer. However, he had been strongly linked to Birmingham for several months, in part due to their American ownership. The move to St Andrew’s became more likely when Birmingham sacked manager John Eustace, despite the team currently being in the Championship playoff positions.
