Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney, has insisted he does not want to leave the club at the end of the season. The 31-year-old has struggled for game time under manager Jose Mourinho, making only 12 starts in the Premier League.
Rooney has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with China mooted as his next destination. But the club’s record goalscorer says he wants to stay. “Of course you want to play every game. I’ve had to try to take my chance when called upon. I try to do my best for the team,” he told a news conference ahead of the Europa League semi-final second leg against Celta Vigo.
“I’ve been at this club for 13 years; of course I want to play football. Here? Of course.“The more I can play, the better for me and the more I can help team. I haven’t thrown my toys out of the pram but I do want to play to help the team.“Football changes. You have different challenges in your career. I would like to play more but I’ve tried to help the team on and off pitch.”
