ASH­LEY COLE has told Wayne Rooney he’d be MAD to turn down the chance to play for Jose Mour­inho.

And, in a veiled dig at new Manch­ester United boss David Moyes, Chelsea full-back Cole claimed the pres­ence of the Spe­cial One is enough to make any top player want to move to Stam­ford Bridge.

In a clear ref­er­ence to Rooney, Cole said: “For me, if there’s a player Jose wants to come to Chelsea, there would be one thought in my mind – to come here and to be un­der a great man­ager.

“It’s a plea­sure to play un­der him. He’s great at mo­ti­vat­ing play­ers and keep­ing you on your toes.

“He has proved just how good he is with the num­ber of tro­phies he’s won with all his dif­fer­ent teams.”

Mour­inho (be­low) has had a £26mil­lion bid for Rooney turned down, but the Blues boss is ex­pected to come back in with a £30m

of­fer.
