Jose Mourinho will be named as Manchester United Manager on a £10m contract

TVC E. Jose Mourinho will be named as Manchester United Manager on Thursday May the 25th after negotiating a £10m-a-year, three-year contract with the former Chelsea manager Jorge mendes. Following two days of talks between United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Jose Mourinho’s advisor, Jorge Mendes, the 53-year-old will be officially announced as Old Trafford’s third manager in three years on Thursday following the dismissal of Louis van Gaal in the wake of the club’s FA Cup success at the weekend. Louis van Gaal’s time at Manchester United is over after the Dutchman was sacked after two underwhelming years at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho will also earn double the £5m-a-year salary paid to Van Gaal after being handed the challenge of restoring United to the summit of English and European football. The Dutchman arrived at Old Trafford on Monday May the 23rd morning, where he discussed the situation with Ed Woodward and his departure...

Van Gaal blames Europa slump on injury crisis

TVC E, SPORTS - Louis van Gaal has blamed Manchester United 2-1 defeat by FC Midtjylland in the Europa League on deepening injury crisis. United travelled to Denmark with 13 first-team players unable to feature in their round-of-32 tie with Midtjylland, including captain Wayne Rooney, who faces six weeks out with a knee injury. The team suffered a further setback just minutes before kick-off as David de Gea picked up an injury in the warm up, ruling him out of Thursday's encounter. Jurgen Klopp says he is not happy with Liverpool performance after the Reds played out a goalless draw at Augsburg. In other matches, Anderlecht edged Olympiacos 1-nil, while Borussia Dortmund defeated  FC Porto 2-nil. Sevilla beat  Molde FK 3-nil, as Tottenham held a Fiorentina to a 1-all draw in Italy. Villarreal pipped Napoli with a lone goal and Sporting CP lost 1-nil at home to Bayer Leverkusen. Gary Neville led Valencia to an emphatic 6-0...

Costa strikes late to grab point for Chelsea against Man U

[caption id="attachment_9624" align="alignleft" width="300"] Chelsea's Diego Costa celebrates scoring their first goal.[/caption] TVC E, SPORTS - Chelsea striker Diego Costa ensured the Blues shared the spoils with Manchester United after his late goal in added time on Saturday. Costa's strike also preserved Guus Hiddink's unbeaten record since returning to the London club as interim manager in December while denying Dutch compatriot Louis van Gaal victory. It also meant United had failed to win any of their last 10 league and cup meetings with Chelsea over the past three years. Jesse Lingaard scored a fine goal for the visitors after an hour's play but in the first minute of added time Costa coolly beat Spain team mate David De Gea to snatch a draw. Chelsea, who lost defender Kurt Zouma with a serious looking knee injury, were left in 13th place in their unexpectedly feeble title defence. United stayed fifth, six points behind neighbours Manchester City...

Mendes denies claims Mourinho wrote Man-U

TVC E, SPORT - Jose Mourinho's agent has described claims that the Portuguese has written to Manchester United in a bid to become their next manager as 'absolutely ridiculous and totally absurd'. A report in the Independent on Sunday suggested that the former Chelsea boss had written a six-page letter outlining why he would be the right man to replace Louis van Gaal, as and when he leaves Old Trafford. The report also claimed that Mourinho gave a 'forensic analysis' of United's team this season and suggested areas which could be improved. United have declined to respond to the reports, but in a statement on Sunday morning, Jorge Mendes categorically denied them.                      ...
