Mour­inho ‘fully com­mit­ted’ to Man United, says agent

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

JOSE MOUR­INHO’S agent has taken the rare step of re­leas­ing a state­ment to reaf­firm the Manch­ester United man­ager’s com­mit­ment to the English Pre­mier League club.

Ad­dress­ing what he de­scribes as “ru­mours” of Mour­inho leav­ing United, Jorge Men­des says “it’s to­tally un­true. Jose is very happy at the club and the club is very happy with him.”

Men­des says Mour­inho “is fully com­mit­ted to the club in build­ing a solid win­ning project” and stressed his client has a long-term con­tract at the club. Mour­inho’s cur­rent deal with United runs un­til June 2020, with the op­tion of a fur­ther year in charge.

United head into a home match against last-place Ful­ham to­day in eighth place in the league, 18 points be­hind lead­ers Manch­ester City and eight points off the top four in the fight for Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fi­ca­tion.
