Jakarta: Chelsea's Jose Mourinho Tuesday hit back at suggestions he was trying to destabilise new Manchester United manager David Moyes after targeting striker Wayne Rooney.

The experienced Portuguese campaigner said he had done nothing but praise the English champions' incoming boss since returning for a second spell at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho said he had called Moyes a "great coach, (who) deserves success, he deserves time to work, he didn't win trophies in Everton because it's very difficult to win trophies there".
