Man United man reveals text message from Jose Mourinho

Marouane Fellaini reveals that he has already been in touch with his new Manchester United boss

Marouane Fellaini has revealed that Jose Mourinho sent him a text message to wish him good luck ahead of Euro 2016 following his appointment as Manchester United manager,

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

There had been suggestions that Fellaini could be one of the casualties from Mourinho’s arrival at the club, with some reports claiming that the Belgian midfielder was being lined up for a transfer away from the club.

However, Fellaini has moved to play down talk of a move away from the club by insisting that he is looking forward to playing under Mourinho next season.

Speaking at a news conference on Saturday, Fellaini said: “Mourinho contacted me by SMS to wish me a good Euro [2016].

“As far as my future is concerned, I’m under contract with Manchester United. In addition, a great manager, Jose Mourinho, is arriving.

“He likes to win titles and I would be honoured and proud to work with him. Now it’s up to me to show he can trust me.”
