Mour­inho: happy at club, says agent

Daily Nation Newspaper - - SPORT -

MANCH­ESTER United man­ager Jose Mour­inho is "very happy" and "fully com­mit­ted" to the club, ac­cord­ing to his agent.

Mour­inho's po­si­tion at the club has been un­der scru­tiny this sea­son with United cur­rently eighth in the Premier League, eight points off the top four.

The Por­tuguese, 55, signed a con­tract ex­ten­sion at Old Traf­ford in Jan­uary but has been linked with a re­turn to for­mer club Real Madrid.

"It's to­tally un­true," said his agent Jorge Men­des via a state­ment.

“Jose is very happy at the club and the club is very happy with him. He has a long-term con­tract with Manch­ester United and is fully com­mit­ted to the club in build­ing a solid win­ning project.”

Mour­inho’s United play Ful­ham at home on to­day.

Jorge Men­des rarely talks in pub­lic, so there is huge sig­nif­i­cance around the state­ment that has been re­leased on his be­half.

The big ques­tion is what the sig­nif­i­cance ac­tu­ally is.

For that, there has to be an an­swer to whether United knew it was com­ing out, and, more im­por­tantly, whether they agree with its con­tents. -
