Wayne Rooney is determined that he will become a top manager, despite Birmingham City sacking him after a dismal run, according to Sky Sports News.


In October, Birmingham sacked John Eustace and appointed former Manchester United striker Rooney as their new manager.


Under Rooney, Birmingham only managed to win two out of 15 games in the league, which has left them in 20th place in the Championship table.




On New Year’s Day, Birmingham suffered a 3-0 defeat at Leeds United, which extended Blues’ winless run to five games.


And following the Leeds defeat, the Birmingham hierarchy decided to sack Rooney from his managerial role.



Rooney though is not disheartened and remains determined that he will become a top manager.


The 38-year-old tactician is said to be hurt by the duration of time he was given in his role and the abuse he has received from a section of Birmingham fans.



Rooney has not yet agreed a compensation package with Birmingham as a result of his sacking.
