Did Mourinho really write a love letter to United? Agent says reports are 'totally absurd'

JOSE MOURINHO’S AGENT has ridiculed media reports that the Portuguese coach wrote a six page letter to Manchester United setting out why he should be their next coach.

“It is absolutely ridiculous and totally absurd,” Jorge Mendes said of the reports that Mourinho, free since being sacked by Chelsea in December, had written a detailed analysis of how United could be revived.

The Independent on Sunday said Mourinho explained in the letter how he would adapt his style of management to suit the Old Trafford style and how he would overhaul the squad.

With United losing 1-0 to Southampton on Saturday, pressure is growing on United coach Louis van Gaal.

The 52-year-old Mourinho has been linked with the job before, but United chose David Moyes to succeed Alex Ferguson in 2013 and Van Gaal to come in a year later.

United’s defeat by Southampton left the Red Devils five points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.
