Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has signed a contract extension at Old Trafford, committing his future to the club until at least 2020.
Mourinho’s previous three-year deal was due to run out next year.
“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,” the Portuguese said.
In an interview with MUTV, Mourinho added: “I feel happy.
“I don’t sign contracts if I’m not happy. I’m really happy with the trust, the empathy [at the club]… it’s a special contract for me because I’m used to signing new contracts after big achievements.
“Of course I’m happy to do that, but it feels like the trust, the empathy and the belief in my work is a consequence of that big achievement.
