Jose Mourinho has said that it was Wayne Rooney’s desire to return to Everton to have more playing minutes, something that has not been guaranteed by the Portuguese.
After 13 years at Old Trafford, Rooney returned to his childhood club, Everton.
Red Devils coach Jose Mourinho said it was the desire of the player to leave Manchester United.
Rooney made that decision after spending the worst season under Mourinho’s command, being just a substitute for the season we left behind.
“It’s no secret that for a long time I’ve been Wayne’s admirer; He has been a model for everyone and will remain in the history books of the club for many years, “Mou said.
“It’s never easy to see big players playing less than they want, so I could not get on the road when he asked to return in Everton,” Mou added.
“His experience, focus and dedication will be missing and I wish him all the best in the future,” added Mou among others.
