Number Two : Mourinho Reminds everyone that Moyes sees Rooney as back up for Van Persie
Jose Mourinho has rejected claims that he is responsible for destabilising Wayne Rooney.
Instead the Chelsea boss has laid the blame squarely at the door of Reds manager David Moyes.
And Mourinho, who remains open about his pursuit of Manchester United’s England striker,has dismissed the idea that United fans could turn on him over the controversy at Old Trafford tonight.
The Special One said: “Why? They are against me? But I didn’t say to Rooney you will be a second choice for me & they are against me?
“We are trying to get a player that a manager told ‘You will be a second option for him. We are not going for Van Persie.’
“The fans 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 – if someone comes here to get Ramires –nobody is upset.”
