Rooney reckons he picked ‘right time’ to leave Man Utd

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Wayne Rooney believes he left Manchester United at the right time, even though he wanted to finish his career at Old Trafford.The 33-year-old, who is set to make his final England appearance against the United States in a friendly international at Wembley on Thursday, is now playing for North American club side DC United in Major League Soccer.But there is no denying his place in United’s history books, with Rooney the club’s leading goalscorer in a career that also saw him win five Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and three League Cups with the Red Devils.In total, Rooney made 559 appearances for United from 2004-2017 after joining from boyhood club Everton.But he started a mere seven of the final 19 Premier League appearances of his United career, with Rooney no longer a first-choice player under manager Jose Mourinho.Rooney returned to Everton before leaving English club football completely when he joined DC United earlier this year.“Of course you miss it,” he told MUTV, United’s in-house television station, of his time at Old Trafford. “It was the highlight of my career, playing for Man United and I was there for so long. But it was the right time.“I wasn’t playing, first of all. I have always been a player who wants to play,” he added. “Obviously I spoke to the manager (Mourinho) and it didn’t look like I was going to play, so it was the right decision and the right time for me to go.“Obviously, you wish, the ideal situation was staying there and finishing your career there, but football changes. Different things happen and things happen for a reason.”Rooney was denied the kind of United farewell he is set to enjoy with England as his last appearance for the club was as a substitute against Dutch side Ajax in a Europa League victory,“It would have been nice to have done it at Old Trafford,” he said. “But I have been back there a few times and I will be back over the Christmas period, at a game to watch them.“I left with great memories. I had a new opportunity to go and play in the States. I had a great time at United, though, and again I am looking forward to going back and seeing a few of my team-mates, and a few friends from the staff who I have made along the way.“The fans have been brilliant to me and it will be nice to see a few familiar faces when I go to a game over Christmas,” Rooney added.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Revealed – the secrets of retaining golf club members

first_img Tags: Customer, Customer Service, Research, Retention 9 Oct 2017 Revealed – the secrets of retaining golf club members The secrets of keeping golf club members happy, contented and loyal are revealed in new report commissioned by England Golf: Valuing Your Customers.The findings, from Manchester Metropolitan University, will be used to help golf clubs strengthen their business by retaining their members.They’ll be shared by England Golf’s club support network, together with a specially produced video and other resources which will help clubs identify and provide the golfing experience their members want.The report makes the point that it costs less to retain a member than to attract a new one and it highlights six ways to keep members happy:– Offer enjoyment and engagement– Provide a unique ethos and atmosphere– Create a great customer experience from the car park to the bar– A warm welcome which extends far beyond a ‘meet and greet’– Participation options for all, from novice to experienced player– Ways to keep members involved long-termIt also offers ideas for clubs to consider which will customise their approach to members. These could include becoming a female-friendly club or offering alternative formats which could be welcomed by beginners, older players and those who are short of time.Report author Dr Chris Mackintosh said: “Members are the lifeblood of any club and retention really matters. The evidence says that if golf clubs can be more diverse, more open and embrace a friendly culture more people will stay in the game and we will grow the sport.”Abbie Lench, England Golf’s Head of Club Support, added: “We want to show clubs how to understand and to value their customers and build a healthy base of loyal members.”She added: “There’s another great benefit because we find that clubs which have an excellent relationship with existing members, will improve their reputation and find it easier to recruit new players.”England Golf is now working in partnership with MMU on a three-year research project to better understand volunteers in clubs and the critical role they play in retention.CASE STUDYKettering Golf Club in Northamptonshire is where Charley Hull learned her golf and is now an honorary member.  It recognised its strength was as a members’ club and made this a priority, offering relaxed enjoyment and companionship.The club has worked on retention programmes with David Davis, the England Golf Club Support Officer in Northamptonshire, and they’ve been so successful that they remain financially secure, have enhanced their reputation and grown their membership by over 8% in two years, lowering the overall age of the membership in the process.Club Chairman Graham Althorpe commented: “New members are important, but for us, our best recruiting sergeant is retaining existing members who are pleased with and want to be part of the whole Kettering Golf Club experience.”CASE STUDYNorthamptonshire County Golf Club has also worked with David Davis and, after considering the demographic of its ageing membership, has put in place a long-term strategy for retention and recruitment. This has included halving the joining fee which helped to increase membership by almost 6% from 2015-2017.Club Manager Elaine McBride commented: “We ensure that we are constantly being proactive by engaging with existing members and increasing our PR presence in the local golfing community.“For example, we can now analyse members’ bar spending and this means we can engage with members who have not have used the facilities recently. It’s a good way to gain a better understanding of factors that impact on people visiting and using the club.”The new retention guidance has been produced as part of England Golf’s strategy, Growing the Game of Golf in England, which has the customer at its heart.Click here for further informationlast_img read more
