The future of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United has been reported for the past few months but there has now been a conclusion.
That is because Mourinho has signed a contract extension with the Red Devils, with his new deal lasting until 2020 with an option for an extra year.
There was much talk about his future after he had a brief spell flirting with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Portuguese boss seemingly was open to the idea of managing the club and there looked to be interest from the other side.
Now, the boss has put that to bed with his new deal.
“I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager,” explained Mourinho.
“I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to Mr Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication.
“I am delighted they feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future.
“We have set very high standards – winning three trophies in one season – but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for.
“We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United.
“And I cannot finish without thanking the fans for their support and for making me feel at home so quickly.
“I repeat, to be Manchester United manager is an honour every day and I am really happy.”
