After dismissing Ian Foster in April and ending the season in 21st position, Plymouth began looking for a new manager.

In the same season that they fired Rooney as manager, Birmingham City, who finished one point below them, were demoted.

The former England captain lost nine of his fifteen games after taking over a team that was in the play-offs at the time before being fired in January, before he had even had the position for three months.

Rooney is in his fourth year as manager at Plymouth. When he first took over Derby County, they were struggling financially, but he managed to keep them in the Championship. However, he left after the next season when they were demoted, mostly because of a 21-point deduction.

Before taking the helm at Birmingham as part of an American consortium’s makeover after their purchase, he spent more than a year managing Major League Soccer team, DC United.

“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,” Rooney said.

According to reports, Premier League clubs have approved the introduction of a development plan that will curb spending beginning with the 2025–2026 season.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
