Jose Mourinho: Manchester United manager signs new contract to 2020

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has signed a contract extension 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.

Mourinho said he was “delighted” that United “feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future”.

“I feel a privileged one to work with such a fantastic group of boys,” he added.

“My initial contract was three years, we made now the decision to make it clear for everyone that it is not for three, it is for four or five, and who knows, more.”

Mourinho, appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May 2016, won the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season.
