Mourinho signs new Man Utd deal keeping him at Old Trafford until 2020
Jose Mourinho has expressed his delight at signing a new deal at Manchester United.
His current contract will see him remain at Old Trafford until the summer of 2020, with an option for a further year.
Mourinho became the Red Devils boss at the start of last season and led the club back into the Champions League by winning the Europa League, however the Portuguese thanked the club owners and Ed Woodward for showing faith in him.
“I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager," he said as manutd.com reported. "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.
“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.”
