Mourinho extends contract with Manchester United


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has extended his contract with Manchester United to 2020 with option of a further year.

Mourinho speaking to newsmen expressed delight over the extension of his contact which was due to end in 2019.

He added: “I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to [chief executive Ed] Woodward.”

The Portuguese, appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May 2016, won the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season.

This season United are second in the Premier League, behind runaway leaders Manchester City, with the club still in the Champions League and FA Cup.

“We have set very high standards – winning three trophies in one season – but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for,” Mourinho added.

Woodward praised Mourinho for his “exceptional work rate and professionalism”, as well as for “embracing the club’s desire to promote top-quality young players”.

He added: “He has brought an energy and a sense of purpose to everything that he does and I am sure that will continue to bring results for the fans and the club.”
