Jose Mourinho addresses his Man United future ahead of Feyenoord clash
The Manchester United manager discusses his long-term future at Old Trafford
Jose Mourinho has underlined his desire to see out his three-year contract at Manchester United.
The Portuguese coach has endured a tough start to his Manchester United reign after three Premier League defeats in 12 games.
The 20-time English champions have lost to Manchester City, Watford and Chelsea, while the Red Devils have won just five top-flight fixtures.
Mourinho’s side are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table and nine points adrift of his former club Chelsea.
Manchester United will look to get their Europa League campaign back on track on Thursday night against Feyenoord after a 2-1 loss to Fenerbahce in their last top-flight outing.
Mourinho signed a three-year deal with Manchester United as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May after the Dutch coach led the Red Devils to a disappointing fifth-place finish.
Speaking at his pre-match media conference on Wednesday afternoon, Mourinho discussed his long-term plans to stay at Old Trafford.
“I’m at the beginning of my contract, so let’s go step by step,” Mourinho said. “But if you ask whether I’d like to have success and stay here longer than three years, then yes, because I’m at the club where I want to be.”
The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Feyenoord in their opening Europa League game.
