Mourinho: I see myself staying at Man Utd…if they want me

Jose Mourinho has discussed his long-term future at Manchester United and what the future may hold.

In his first season at United, he has already brought silverware back to Old Trafford, winning the EFL Cup last month, while the Reds are still on course to win the Europa League.

After a shaky start, Mourinho has overturned their league fortunes too, going 18 games unbeaten in the Premier League, last tasting defeat in November 2016, losing 4-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

United now sit fifth in the Premier League, four points behind Liverpool in 4th with two games in hand.

After a successful start to life at United, Mourinho has been discussing his future at the club, declaring he needs to bring ‘true success’ to Old Trafford to keep him in Manchester for a long period of time.

“Three years [minimum], I think I will be here,” he said. “I think the club understood the necessity to give stability to all levels.

“I believe if we do that, even without a massive success, which is harder in football, even more so in England, but with some type of success, I see myself staying here if they want me to stay.

“If they want me to stay I will stay, but like I say, we both need to be happy. I’m not a type of person to be at a club 10, 15 years, without real success.

“I need to have true success, my life is like that, I need that pride and happiness. In all honesty, I would like things to go well and be here many years.”
