Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has pen a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2020, with the option of a further year.
The 54-year-old’s previous deal at Old Trafford was due to expire in 2019.
The Portuguese won the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season at Old Trafford and this season United is currently second in the Premier League and through to the Champions League last-16, where they will face Sevilla.
Mourinho said he was “delighted” that United “feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future”.
He added: “I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to [chief executive Ed] 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”.
The former Inter, Real Madrid and Chelsea boss has never managed the same club for more than three consecutive seasons, but Man United director Ed Woodward praised his commitment to the institution and stated his belief that he would remain in charge for years to come.
“Jose has already achieved a great deal as Manchester United manager and I am delighted that he has agreed to extend his commitment until at least 2020,” he said.
“His work rate and professionalism are exceptional and he has embraced the club’s desire to promote top quality young players to the first team.
