Jose Mourinho opens up on his Manchester United future

Jose Mourinho has reiterated that he will not end his career at Manchester United.

Mourinho raised eyebrows last week when he said that he did not see his long-term future at Old Trafford, hinting that Paris Saint-Germain would be a viable future destination in the same interview.

The Portuguese stated in the summer that he would be happy to stay at United for another decade, but his tune has changed at the start of the season.

In his press conference on Tuesday, he again stated that he will eventually leave United, but distanced himself from the PSG rumours.

“I think you, the English media have the answer,” he said of his future. “In one day it says I am going to sign a five-year contract, £1billion per season. The next day you say I am leaving to go to PSG. That is the answer.

“Nothing is happening, I am not signing a new five-year contract and I am not leaving for PSG. I am not leaving United. I have a contract and that is it.”

Pressed further on the matter, he added: “I have my contract which ends in June 2019. We are in October 2017 so I don’t know what to say.

“I told poeople, and it is true, that I am not going to end my career at United. How is it possible in modern football that any manager lasts 15/20 years in the same club? Arsene Wenger is the last one.

“I think I’m going to be in football 15 years more minimum, it is impossible to stay that long at one club.

“If my career was ending in three, four, five years then yes, I would end my career at United.

“Yes it’s true that I haven’t signed a new contract; but I’m also not thinking about leaving either.”
