BANGKOK (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes testily repeated that Wayne Rooney is not for sale on Friday, after he abruptly quit their Asian tour and Chelsea's Jose Mourinho voiced his admiration for the unsettled star.

Moyes was careful not to be dragged into a row with Mourinho but he showed signs of impatience as he underlined his position that Rooney, who flew home with a hamstring injury just hours after arriving in Bangkok, would not be sold.

"Unless I was speaking Double Dutch, I think we've said Wayne Rooney is not for sale," Moyes told a packed press conference in the Thai capital.

"It's hard to keep repeating myself but I will do - Wayne's a Manchester United player and will remain that."
