Mourinho Takes Over As Manchester United Manager

Mourinho Takes Over As Manchester United Manager

José Mourinho has taken over as manager of Manchester United from the 2016/17 season.

The wise one signed a three-year contract with an option to stay at the club until at least 2020.

Speaking about his new club in an interview to MUTV Mourinho said: “I feel great. 

“I think it comes in the right moment of my career because Man United is one of these clubs where you need really to be prepared for it because it is what I call a giant club. 

“And giant clubs must be for the best managers and I think I am ready for it, so I could say I am happy, I am proud, I am honoured.”

He said further: “I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome him to Manchester United. His track record of success is ideal to take the club forward.”

José Mourinho said: “To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game. 

“It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.

“I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; 

“It has hosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed a rapport with the United fans. 

“I’m looking forward to being their manager and enjoying their magnificent support in the coming years.”

Speaking about his new job, he said: “I think we can look at our club now in two perspectives. 

“One perspective is the last three years and another perspective is the club history.

“I think I prefer to forget the past three years, I prefer to focus on the giant club I have in my hands now and I think what the fans are expecting me to say is that I want to win. 

“I think the players need to listen – I want to win.”

The Portuguese coach has won 22 trophies since 2003.

José, 53, has managed at the top level of European football for over a decade.

In that time has won league titles and cups in four countries (Portugal, England, Italy and Spain), as well as winning the UEFA Champions League twice – in 2004 with FC Porto and in 2010 with Inter Milan.

Announcing the appointment, Ed Woodward said: “José is quite simply the best manager in the game today. 

He has won trophies and inspired players in countries across Europe and, of course, he knows the Premier League very well, having won three titles here.
