Jose Mourinho reveals how long he wants to stay at Man United for

Jose Mourinho tells Manchester United fans that he wants to stay at the club for "many years"

Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United fans that he wants to stay at the club for “many, many years” following his appointment back in May.

The Portuguese coach is currently getting to grips with life at Old Trafford after his appointment as Louis van Gaal’s successor at the club earlier this year.

Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea last December after the west London club’s disastrous start to the new campaign left them languishing close to the relegation zone.

Mourinho is the third permanent manager to take over at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in the summer of 2013.

The Red Devils are likely to be looking for stability from the Portuguese coach in the coming seasons.

And speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before Manchester United’s clash with Chelsea on Sunday, Mourinho revealed why he is not hoping to return to Stamford Bridge as manager any time soon.

Asked about a third return to Chelsea, Mourinho said: “I hope not, honestly. Because I would like to stay [at United] for many, many years. That would mean probably that I would not be searching for another club in the Premier League, so I hope not.”
