JOSE MOURINHO HAS cast doubt over his long-term future at Manchester United, saying he will not retire at the Premier League club.

The Portuguese took charge at Old Trafford last summer and is into the second season of a three year contract signed in 2016.

In that time the 54-year-old has led the club to a Europa League title, a League Cup and a Charity Shield, as well as steering the side back into the Uefa Champions League following a two year absence.

However speaking this week the United boss speculated on his long-term future at the Premier League club.

“The only thing I can say is that I am still a coach with worries, ambitions, desires to do new things,” he said speaking with Dutch programme Telefoot.

“I’m sure I will not finish my career here [in Manchester].”

Mourinho has never stayed at any club longer than three years as a senior manager, spending three seasons or less at all of FC Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

He has managed in three of Europe’s top five leagues and amassed eight league titles, four domestic cups, a Uefa Cup, a Europa League and two Champions Leagues.

Having finished sixth in the Premier League last season his side are aiming to push closer to a legitimate title challenge this campaign, having trailed champions Chelsea by 24 points last season.

United are unbeaten in the Premier League so far this season, but trail league leaders Manchester City by two points in second place.
