I will never force Rooney out of Man United says Mourinho
Jose Mourinho has said in an interview that he won’t force Wayne Rooney out of the club.
Jose Mourinho has revealed that he won’t force Wayne Rooney out of the club, but he should decide his future and has all rights to do so.
Mourinho insisted he wants the 31-year-old to stay at Manchester United but he has been linked with a move from money rich Chinese League club.
“You have to ask him. “Of course I can’t guarantee [he will be here]. I can’t guarantee that I’m here next week, how can I guarantee that a player is here next season?
“What I can guarantee is that if Wayne one day leaves the club it is not because I want him to leave the club. That’s the only thing I can guarantee.
“I would never push – or try to push – a legend of this club to another destiny. So you have to ask him if he sees himself staying in the club for the rest of his career or if he sees himself moving. It is not a question for me because I am happy to have him”- Jose said.
