    “I lived in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen and they were *fantastic cities. I don’t think any foreigner had difficulties with the Chinese way of living in the big *cities while I was there. I haven’t spoken to Rooney for a long time, so I don’t know what he is thinking, but if he went to China I think he would have a *positive experience. He has a young family but there are international schools in the big cities and I know for sure he would have every help possible to make him settle. He would be made very welcome. The only problem you have is the language. But if you live in Shanghai or Beijing you have a lot of foreign people, so it is less of an issue. I bumped into many Swedish people in Shanghai and many Europeans live there, working for big companies. And, don’t forget, the players get treated well. They have *everything they need and are very well looked after, so for *someone like Rooney or Diego Costa that would not be a problem. China has a problem at grass-roots level because in the past they have focused more on individual sports like swimming, gymnastics and badminton. But clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid have soccer schools there now and, with a population of 1.2 billion, China will be a super-power in the next 15 years. And the arrival of Rooney will only accelerate that progress.”
