Rooney left his manager position at Major League Soccer side D.C. United on Sunday (8), by mutual consent. Birmingham’s previous manager was John Eustace, who was sacked on Monday (9) after 15 months in charge.

The English club has Tom Brady as chairman of a new advisory board, as the former NFL player has a minority stake. Brady joined the partnership earlier this year.

Birmingham currently play in the second tier of British soccer, one division below the Premier League, and are sixth in the table. Rooney will have the task of promoting the team to the top division.
