Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho plays down links with PSG

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho plays down links with PSG

In his second season in charge, the two-time Champions League victor has already lifted three titles with the Red Devils, the Community Shield at the start of the season, the EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League, which earned them direct Champions League qualification.

Mourinho has hardly managed a club more than three years, including his time managing Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. I am not signing a new five-year contract and I am not leaving for Paris Saint-Germain.

United played out an uneventful goalless draw with Liverpool on Saturday, with Mourinho's cautious tactics coming in for plenty of criticism.

This would be United's first true test of the season when they travel to Anfield, having not met a single team in the top six thus far, with the Reds hoping to end Jose Mourinho's undefeated start to the season. I am not leaving United.

"Nothing is happening, I am not signing anew 5 years contract and I am not leaving for PSG".

Only once the latter is achieved will Mourinho pause and think about what comes next.

"And I ask how is it possible in modern football that any manager is going to last 15, 20 years in the same club?" I think (Arsene) Wenger is the last one. After that people try to be clever, malicious. It is impossible for us, to last for so long.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Manchester United have the upper hand going into the fixture against Liverpool as Romelu Lukaku is in red-hot form and the Reds will be without their main goalscoring threat in the form of Sadio Mane. From Porto's shock Champions League glory, to eight league titles across four leagues, the controversial manager certainly has the record to back-up what can often be perceived as a rather arrogant persona.
