Two failed takeover attempts at the club, a Coronavirus outbreak at the training ground which ruled out the entire first team.
Severalmonthswhere the players weren’t paid their wages, and now repeated regulatory battles with the EFL which have meant stringent restrictions on transfers.
Rooney has just nine senior players in his squad, and – even if the current negotiations with the EFL reduce the embargo somewhat – he is going to have a dearth of resources to compete in the Championship.
The EFL have decreed Derby have 19 players classed “of professional standing” (meaning they have played in at least one League cup, EFL or FA Cup game in their career) and so the club is only currently allowed to sign four more players – and all of those must be within strict financial guidelines:
No loan player can be signed on a deal longer than six months, and any substantive signing can only be paid a fraction of what the average Championship player earns.
