However, former Crystal Palace owner and talkSPORT host Jordan believes Rooney should have stayed put following the Rams’ relegation to League One as he may find it tough to get another role at a higher level.“He will have learned a lot from this,” Jordan said on talkSPORT.The former Manchester United captain had come close to overseeing a great escape after the club were handed a 21-point deduction for breaching EFL accounting rules but though they finished on 34 points, it was not enough to avoid the drop.“Someone asked me earlier on if that means he’s a shoo-in for a Premier League job.On Friday the joint administrators had announced Clowes Developments Ltd had purchased Pride Park, issued an interim loan to the club, and would be submitting a bid to buy them.They’ve bumped their head.2 during the 2020-21 campaign.“He’s nowhere near that.A video posted on state television's Twitter page showed a storage tank falling from a winch and slamming into the deck of a ship, followed by bright yellow-coloured gas rising into the air as people ran away.

I’d be surprised if Wayne got another Championship job any time soon.The club's future had continued to be in doubt throughout Rooney's tenure, but local businessman David Clowes provided fresh hope last week.“The joint administrators are delighted to confirm that they have formally accepted Clowes’ offer to acquire Derby County Football Club out of administration.“I think he’s a bloody fool.You’ve got a club that’s dropped into League One with 28,000 fans that are going to be galvanised up the ying-yang.Clowes confirmed on Friday that they had successfully completed a deal to purchase the stadium and would also submit a deal to buy the football club after issuing an interim loan to keep operations running.Most read in talkSPORT Chelsea eye Sterling and Ake, Maguire to Barca link, Jesus to Arsenal 'done' busy Newcastle's four transfer priorities as they 'hold talks' with Leeds over Raphinha LEGEND Bellingham comment on Henderson's Instagram post has many fans saying the same thing action F1 British Grand Prix LIVE: Date, UK start time and how to follow Silverstone race GOSSIP Everton star responds to reports linking 'hero' Richarlison to Tottenham transfer banging on 'Moaning' Klopp has 'got his way again' with rule change, says Everton man talkSPORT 3 Jordan has been left unimpressed with Rooney’s decision to leave Derby “You’ve got an owner that’s coming in there – he’s bought the stadium too, so he’s not mucking about – I think he [Rooney] is a fool.“All parties are now working hard to conclude what is still a complex legal transaction within a very short timeframe.“If he thinks his currency’s going to get better somewhere else, because it’s a bit more difficult in League One and it might need a bit more manoeuvring and manipulating.A spokesperson on behalf of Quantuma said in a statement: "The joint administrators will now enter into a period of exclusivity with Clowes, with a completion of the acquisition of the business and the assets of the club targeted for June 29.

“League One is not a division full of quality.If Derby can get some players, in the short-term, into the building and build upon it with 28,000 fans and the momentum behind that, you’ve got to be out of your mind [to leave].Once concluded, the transaction will enable the club to move forward and prepare for the upcoming season out of administration.The offer also provides the best return for creditors and enables the joint administrators to fulfil their statutory duties and will ensure that there are no further points deductions levied against the club once it is out of administration.That’s the place to stay.” Rooney, who is now having his first full summer break in 20 years, previously claimed Derby needed ‘fresh energy’ amid their ongoing financial issues.Getty 3 Rooney has left Derby and the baton has been handed to Liam Rosenior “Over the course of the Summer I have been closely following developments regarding the ownership of Derby County,” he told the club’s official website.” Clowes has emerged as the potential new owner after American businessman Chris Kirchner withdrew his offer to buy the club.

“Today I met with the administrators to inform them of my decision that it was time for me to leave the club.In fairness to them, they tried tremendously hard to change my decision but my mind was made up.“My time at the club has been a rollercoaster of emotions, both highs and lows, but I have to say that I have enjoyed the challenge.While Rosenior will get to work in the hot seat as preparations build for the season ahead, Rooney will be pondering what is next for him.“Personally, I feel the club now needs to be led by someone with fresh energy and not affected by the events that have happened over the last eighteen months.Thank you, Wayne 🖤🤍.

Toxic yellow chlorine explosion at Jordan port kills at least 13 and injures 250Specialised teams were sent to deal with the escaping gas which sent plumes of bright yellow smoke into the air - and threatened to spread not only across Aqaba's 188,000 people but also the 50,000 who live in neighbouring Eilat, Israel. Heart goes out to the families of the ships crew, who I fear were likely the first to die. So this is what it looks like when terrorists recruit suicide bombers from The Simpsons.
