Jose Mourinho has revealed that he will not finish his managerial career at Manchester United, citing further ambitions as a key reason.

The Portuguese is in the second year of a three year deal at United and his side currently sit second in the Premier League table.

Rumours in the media have suggested that the Red Devils will offer Mourinho a new contract, with the former Real Madrid manager having said in September that he is eager to stay for “many years.”

He told Telefoot: “The only thing I can say is that I am still a coach with worries, ambitions, desires to do new things.

“I’m sure I will not finish my career here [in Manchester].”

Mourinho continued by praising French midfielder Paul Pogba; a player who he believes has potential to ‘make history’.

“He can make football history,” Mourinho said. “He has talent.

“We have the balance in midfield to occupy space better [this season]. [Partnered] with Matuidi [in the France team], I think he isn’t happy.”

Mourinho also discussed his relationship with Pep Guardiola, who is said to have been given the Barcelona job ahead of Mourinho in 2008.

“Maybe one day I can tell the truth,” Mourinho said. “These are things of my career that I want to keep with me.”
