Jose Mourinho has put pen to paper and extended his stay at Old Trafford until 2022, with a one year extension option. Whispers around the football world had already been suggesting that the Special One was to stick around with Man United for a little while longer seeing as he’s nearing the end of his 2nd season as gaffer but Manchester United finally officially confirmed his stay. Mourinho is to be a United manager for 2 more years with an option of making it 3.
Mourinho, who historically became the first Manchester United boss to win the Europa League as well as the first United manger in history to ever win a major cup in his 1st season at the helm said he was delighted he was extending his stay at Man United and further stated that although he has accomplished a lot already at the club as it is, he still has a lot more to do as well as offer. The aura of this winning mentality that Jose Mourinho brings with him is something that the Red Devil high ups vitally needed to keep a hold off. And that’s exactly what they’ve done for the foreseeable future.
This contract extension also keeps United with that extra transfer market firepower they’ve been experiencing over the past few years with Jose Mourinho being behind the big desk. It’s a well-known fact that many players would love to play for Mourinho, as in to be the best you have to play with and for the best, no? However, his mere strike rate speaks for itself and his raids on Pogba, Matic and Lukaku show why he’s a transfer market guru to be feared as well. Guess all the greats have to have that in their arsenal because Sir Alex sure did.
Majority of the millennial Manchester United fans grew up knowing only one Gaffer at the helm of Old Trafford, the legendary Sir Fergie. As in, he reigned for 26 glorious years, a reign of which may never be duplicated let alone bested. Stability is something they’re used to. United have chopped and screwed with managers after the dopest Scot left but now it looks like they have someone with the right credentials they can build a prosperous future with. Both Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are eager for greatness, and more importantly are both accustomed and built for it. It certainly looks like the perfect match.
