There are some rather shocked faces after the latest claim from Metro is aired in the Football Transfer Tavern, as we discuss the claim made by Jose Mourinho who thinks the fact Wayne Rooney is unsettled is down to David Moyes.
The forward has been linked with a move away from the club all summer and Chelsea seem to be the prime destination for the England international.
Now after claiming he will not make another bid for Rooney before the showdown clash with Manchester United tonight, Mourinho responded to claims he could be booed by the Old Trafford faithful.
The Portuguese tactician noted: “Why? They are against me? But I didn’t say you will be a second choice for me.
“We are trying to get a player that a manager told will be a second option for him.
“We are not going for Van Persie. They don’t have to be against me. If I say Ramires is a second option for me and he plays when Lampard is tired or injured and if someone comes here to get Ramires, nobody is upset.”
Mourinho was then asked if he felt the whole situation was David Moyes fault and quipped: “Of course.”
Chelsea as we all know are still trying to land Rooney, yet Moyes and United seem to be holding firm, forcing Mourinho to look at other options this summer.
Will Mourinho’s mind games put Moyes in a spin? Let us know your thoughts below.
