Mourinho Will Show Me Where I will Play Rooney In National Team-Sam Allardyce

The new England manager Sam Allardyce has declared that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will determine where Wayne Rooney will play for his country when Rooney comes for international assignment, the BBC reports.

The 30-year-old Rooney, played in two different roles under former England boss Roy Hodgson, he played as a forward and in midfield during Euro 2016 making it a bit difficult for the new manager to assign a role to the England star.

Allardyce told BBC Sports that “If Jose says he is not going to play him in centre midfield and he is playing up front and scoring goals for Manchester United then it would be pointless me bringing him into England and playing him in centre midfield.”

Allardyce also said it was too soon to confirm whether Rooney who is England’s record scorer, would remain as captain, said the 61-year-old.
