Charlie Nicholas has warned Jose Mourinho that he won’t get a better job than Manchester United.

The Red Devils appointed Mourinho as Louis van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford in May 2016 following a tough spell since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

Manchester United won the Europa League and the League Cup under Mourinho last term despite a disappointing sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

The Portuguese coach’s remit is to guide Manchester United to a first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge following Alvaro Morata’s winner before the international break.

Mourinho’s side returned to winning ways on Saturday with a resounding 4-1 win against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are eight points adrift of leaders Manchester City after 12 games to leave themselves an uphill challenge in the title race.

The Red Devils boss has been linked with the Paris Saint-Germain job a mere 18 months into his Manchester United reign.

Former Arsenal midfielder Nicholas warned Mourinho that he won’t get a job with more prestige than his current Manchester United roll.

“Jose is getting more short term,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.

“I don’t know where he goes after this.

“PSG don’t play his style. This is as good as it gets for him.”

Manchester United are looking to win their first Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson got his hands on his final top-flight crown.

The Red Devils won the Europa League and the League Cup in their first season under Mourinho.
