John O'Shea and Ashely Cole come back to England together with Rooney
This famous Englishman was on the bench of DC United, and he brought with him to Birmingham his assistants, Ashley Cole, a former teammate from the England national team, as well as John O'Shea, with whom he played together for years in Manchester United.
