Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, notorious for his short stays at clubs his manages, has claimed that he will not retire at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese tactician initially signed a three year contract with the club and there are reports of an extension on the way with the board impressed by his management of the team.
However, the board may reconsider offering an extension after Mourinho’s comments due to his reluctance to commit to a long term future at the club.
At the start of his career at United he stated that there was a three year vision he had for the club but most fans assumed this was just the coach’s way of sticking to his contract length.
However, it may be that Jose doesn’t see himself staying with the Red Devils for longer than his three contracted years before moving on elsewhere.
Speaking to Telefoot he said: “What I can say is that I am still a manager with questions, with ambitions, with a desire to do new things and I do not think… I am sure that I will not finish my career here [Manchester United].
“The other day, my son who lives in London decided to go to Paris and not Manchester to watch a match. Why Paris? Because at the moment, PSG have something special. There is a magic, youthfulness and quality. It is fantastic.”
His comments aren’t the most pleasing thing to the average United fan but should he win the Premier League with the club and successfully restore them as England’s elite then perhaps all will be forgiven.
Mourinho moving on could also mean the possibility of former club legend Ryan Giggs finally taking over as manager.
The Welshman was hoping to eventually take over from Louis Van Gaal after being reportedly prepped from the main job but after the Dutchman’s shortcomings, Giggs’ plans were thrown under the bus.
Since then he hasn’t been involved with the club in any real capacity but should Jose move on, a return to Old Trafford may be on the cards.
