Jose Mourinho reveals that he is already working hard since being appointed as Manchester United manager

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is working hard at his new job at Manchester United as he prepares to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

The Portuguese coach was appointed as the Red Devils’ new manager on a three-year contract last month after months of speculation linking him with the Old Trafford job.

Mourinho is believed to have been handed a £200m transfer budget to spend on new players this summer as he prepares for his first season in charge at the club.

The former Chelsea manager was in the stands to watch Soccer Aid at Old Trafford on Sunday as he enjoyed his first game at the Theatre of Dreams since his appointment.

And the former Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss has revealed that he is already working hard at his new job.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Mourinho said: “I’m sorry I couldn’t be more involved tonight and I was sorry not to enjoy training with the England boys this week, but I am so happy and involved at beginning my job at Manchester United that all the time I have right now is working time!

“But I want to enjoy the game with… the crowd on this fantastic day at my house, Old Trafford.”
