Jason Levien, the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of DC United, stated: “We have had conversations with Wayne and mutually agreed that it is in the best interest of both parties to part ways at this time.”

“This decision provides an opportunity for our next General Manager to restructure our sporting operations and begin the process of identifying a new head coach who best fits that vision.”

“We are grateful to Wayne Rooney for everything he has done for our club and for the capital city’s soccer community, first as a player, then as the captain of D.C. United, and most recently as our head coach.”

“He remains an important part of the DC United family and a cherished friend who is beloved,” Levien concluded.
