Mourinho urges Rooney to seek a move from Old Trafford
According to the Sun, Mourinho has asked Rooney to leave Manchester United if he wants to get regular playing time.
The Manchester United skipper, has been deemed to be surplus requirements, after failing to impress Mourinho since the beginning of the season.
Rooney has been heavily criticized by fans, after making several errors which cost the Red Devils several points in previous matches.
He missed out 4 fixtures, including Manchester United’s loss to Chelsea and perhaps this was a good thing because teammate Paul Pogba was the target of heavy criticism after the match.
The reports say Mourinho is finally fed up with the former Everton star and has asked him to seek playing opportunities elsewhere.
