Mourinho: It’s up to Rooney to decide his future

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho won't stand in Wayne Rooney's way if he wants to move to China.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho won’t stand in Wayne Rooney’s way if he wants to move to China.

There have been reports that Rooney could be set for a bumper move to the Chinese Super League.

“I don’t know, it’s up to him,” Mourinho is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

“I don’t like to be critical of players who decide to go to China. It’s their life, it’s their organisation of their life, their organisation of their career.

“The money is huge. The experience can also be interesting.

“I know some of my colleagues think they are more important than they are and think they can interfere in the lives of other people, but I’m not that sort of guy.

“Everybody is responsible for their own life. I’m not critical with anyone.

“To be honest, in Wayne’s case, I have no idea because he has never mentioned it to me.”
