Confirmed: Jose Mourinho Extends Contract With Man Utd
Manchester United have confirmed that manager Jose Mourinho has extended his contract with the club.
The Portuguese's previous contract was due to expire in 2019, having only signed a three-year deal when he joined the club.
However, Mourinho has now signed a new deal that will see him remain at the club until 2022.
“I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager. I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to Mr Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication. I am delighted they feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future," Mourinho told the club's official website.
“We have set very high standards - winning three trophies in one season - but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for. We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United.
“My thanks, of course, go to my staff and to my players; without their empathy and friendship this wouldn’t be possible. I love my players and it is a pleasure to know that we are going to be together for at least the next three years.
“And I cannot finish without thanking the fans for their support and for making me feel at home so quickly. I repeat, to be Manchester United manager is an honour every day and I am really happy.”
