Wayne Rooney’s BBC schedule up in the air with Plymouth manager expected at pre-season 12 DAYS before Euro 2024 final

WAYNE  ROONEY has some juggling to do to fulfil his BBC Sport commitments after his managerial return at Plymouth.

The ex-England captain, who impressed as an FA Cup final pundit, will be in the BBC’s Berlin studios for the Euros.

But he needs to work out his schedule as the Pilgrims return to training on July 2 — 12 days before the Euros final.

Although he will still be in Berlin for some games, Rooney plans to divide his time with Plymouth to prepare for the start of the season.

Argyle’s first pre-season friendly is at Exmouth Town on July 9, the same day as one of the semis —  although if England top their group, they will not be in that half of the draw.

His appointment at Plymouth raised some eyebrows after his flop at Birmingham — but Rooney can argue he did not have a transfer window in Brum to sign players.


WIN or lose, Dortmund will have a big party in London on Saturday night.

They have booked venue Outernet in the West End and recently-departed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp — in charge of Dortmund when they lost the 2013 final to Bayern Munich — is among the guests invited.

But the Dortmund players have already made it clear that they will only stay at the event for two hours… because they want to go clubbing!


JESSE MARSCH brutally name-checked ­Crysencio Summerville and Ademola ­Lookman in a podcast a few months ago.


The former Leeds and Leipzig boss said the two players “stunk” in training.

But there has been little wrong with their performances this season.
Summerville was the Championship player of the season — even though Leeds lost in the play-off final.

And a Lookman hat-trick gave Atalanta a 3-0 Europa League final win over Bayer Leverkusen.


JUDE BELLINGHAM delivered a media masterclass talking to Spanish and English journalists at Real Madrid’s press day on Monday.

Even so, he said: “I’m more nervous standing here in front of you guys.

“This is scarier than Wembley.”

Maybe that is why we still rarely hear him talk. Hopefully, that might change during Euro 2024.


ENGLAND and Scotland fans will be getting a shock if they think they will be able to avoid carrying cash at Euro 2024.

While you can still use bank cards in restaurants in Germany, a huge number of bars and pubs have ‘cash only’ signs in windows.

Equally, only about 50 per cent of taxi drivers accept cards, so supporters need to remember to swap their pounds for euros.
