Rooney, Rashford, Smalling to go on Man Utd tour of China

England trio of Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Chris Smalling will go on Manchester United’s tour of China, manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed.

However, the trio will not play any part in United’s games against Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City on July 22 and 25 respectively having only just returned from England duty at Euro2016.

“I am taking the English boys that I was not expecting to come,” Mourinho told MUTV.

“Fortunately they are coming. I will take them, but I am not going to play them.

“What is important is to work, to be together and to know each other – to live together for 24 hours every day during the week.”
