Cape Town - Jose
Mourinho claims he will not stand in the way of captain Wayne Rooney
leaving the club with rumours brewing of a potential switch to the
Chinese Super League.
Reports from the Mirror.co.uk claim the club's record scorer has
been offered a £700,000-a-week deal by champions Guangzhou Evergrande
and their fierce rivals Beijing Guoan and Mourinho says it's up to the
31-year-old to decide if he wants to remain at the club.
"I don't know, it's up to him," he told reporters.
"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.
"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," Mourinho added.
"To be honest, in Wayne's case, I have no idea because he has never mentioned it to me."
