Manchester United are visiting Benfica in the Champions League, but a good part of Jose Mourinho’s Press conference ahead of this match had nothing to do with it, focusing instead on his future at Old Trafford, and all sorts of rumours making the circles these last days.
I think you English media have the answer for that. In one day, it says I am going to sign a five-year contract, £1 billion per season. The next day you say I am leaving and I’m going to Paris Saint-Germain. The answer is exactly that
the Portuguese said, choosing this way to answer a question about his future as Man United manager.
Nothing is happening, I am not signing a new five-year contract and I am not leaving for Paris Saint-Germain. I am not leaving Manchester United. I have a contract and that’s it
Mourinho said, before explaining why he said the other day that United will not be his last job.
The only thing I said, and it’s a true interpretation of my words, that I am not going to end my career at United. How is it possible in modern football that any manager is going to last 15 or 20 years in the same club? I think Wenger is the last one. I think it’s impossible for us, with everything that surrounds the job, with all the pressure that surrounds every job. I think it’s impossible to last for so long
the Man United manager said.
