Plymouth Argyle have appointed Wayne Rooney as their new head coach.

Rooney takes over from former Plymouth manager Ian Foster, who left the club in April after less than three months in charge.

The former Manchester United and England captain returns to coaching after being sacked by Birmingham City earlier this year, having struggled with only two wins in 15 matches.

The Pilgrims secured their Sky Bet Championship spot after beating Hull City 1-0 on the final day of the 2023/24 season, finishing 21st and narrowly avoiding relegation, unlike Rooney's former club Birmingham.

Rooney will work alongside first-team coaches Kevin Nancekivell and Simon Ireland, as well as goalkeeping coach Daryl Flahavan.

Speaking to the club's media team, Rooney said: “Taking this role at Plymouth Argyle feels like the perfect next step in my career – and I would like to thank the Chairman and Board for the faith they have shown in me. 

“This is an opportunity to be part of an exciting project. I look forward to helping to build a squad of players to play expansive football – and to entertain the Green Army. 

“I have experienced first-hand how talented the existing group of players is here – and also the incredible atmosphere at Home Park. The club is on an exciting long-term journey, with a progressive plan in place. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of it. 

“I can’t wait for the Championship season to start in August.”
