Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has signed a contract extension meaning he will be with the club until 2020.

The Portuguese took charge of Manchester United from Louis Van Gaal and he became the first United manager to win a major trophy in his first season when he secured the EFL Cup last February. He also took the club back to the Champions League by winning the Europa League last season.

Jose Mourinho’s has committed his future to the Old Trafford club until at least 2020, with an option for a further year.

After signing the new contract extension Jose Mourinho said:

“I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager. I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to Mr Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication. I am delighted they feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future.  

“We have set very high standards – winning three trophies in one season – but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for. We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United.  

“My thanks, of course, go to my staff and to my players; without their empathy and friendship, this wouldn’t be possible. I love my players and it is a pleasure to know that we are going to be together for at least the next three years.

“And I cannot finish without thanking the fans for their support and for making me feel at home so quickly. I repeat, to be Manchester United manager is an honour every day and I am really happy.”

Jose Mourinho was linked to join PSG next season after the United manager had praised the Ligue 1 side and their brand of football. The PSG owners were reportedly looking to replace their current manager Unai Emery with the Portuguese.

Now with Mourinho committing his future to Manchester United, all those rumours should be put to rest.
