Wayne and Coleen Rooney are 'oceans apart' as he jets to America to take £1million-a-year DC United job | The Sun

WAYNE and Coleen Rooney were “oceans apart” last night after he flew to America for a managerial job while she vowed to remain in the UK with their four children.

The former Manchester United and England star was pictured landing at Washington’s Dulles airport to discuss a £1million-a-year role as boss of his old MLS club DC United.

He flew to the US on Sunday, after Coleen, 36, had laid bare the tensions in their marriage and how she was so homesick living in America that she often cried herself to sleep.

Rooney, also 36, is keen to take the job to further his management career, but pals of the couple fear it will put yet more strain on their troubled marriage.

A source said: “Wayne has discussed the job with Coleen, but she has categorically said she’s not going.

“That said, she doesn’t want to stand in his way. They have an understanding that they are a team but emotionally she isn’t invested.

“There has been a lot of back and forth but they now agree to disagree.

"The children are settled in school and do not want to go back to America, so they plan to stay in Cheshire with their mum.

“It will be very hard for everyone as a managerial job is much more time consuming than being a player, so nipping back to the UK will be hard.”

The couple married in 2008 and have four sons — Kai, 12, Cass, four, Klay, nine, and Kit, six. But they found life difficult when they moved to Washington DC in June 2018.

His behaviour is understood to have been the trigger for Coleen demanding he return home in 2019.
