Mourinho dismisses United exit rumours, hopes for longer stay
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has dismissed rumours claiming that he might exit Manchester United this summer as “garbage”, saying he sees himself staying long-term with the Premier League giants.
Reacting to the rumour, Mourinho said;
Look, it depends on what you want to know and what you want to speak about. “If you want to speak about some news, I say ‘garbage’. I don’t find a better word to define the talk.
If you want to ask me directly, which I suppose you want, if I see myself next season in Manchester United, I say I see myself here. And, as I said when I arrived, I’m going to leave when the club wants me to leave, because I have no intention to leave at all.
My intention is to stay, and to work and to improve and to bring the club to where the club belongs and I want to stay. And I don’t see any reason not to stay”, he added.
In addition, there have been reports that Mourinho is in early talks over a contract extension with executive vice chairman, Ed Woodward. United also expect to welcome back forward, Romelu Lukaku after he suffered a suspected concussion against Southampton last week for the Friday evening cup tie with Derby.
