Man Utd coach Jose Mourinho has stated that he intends to continue with his coaching career after managing the Red Devils
Man Utd are unbeaten this season, conceding less than 10 goals in all competitions
Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has expressed his confidence of still continuing with his career, even if it’s not at Manchester United.
In his second season in charge, the two-time Champions League winner has already lifted three titles with the Red Devils, the Community Shield at the start of the season, the EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League, which earned them direct Champions League qualification.
Speaking to the media, Jose Mourinho said, “I'm still a coach with worries, ambitions & desires to do new things. I’m sure I will not finish my career at Manchester United."
Mourinho managed to escape Anfield with a point after Man Utd struggled to keep Liverpool from scoring, a defensive tactic that got football pundits criticizing United’s approach of the game.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp also took a swipe at Mourinho, saying that the veteran coach came to Anfield seeking a draw.
Mourinho, however, was happy with the squad and praised the team for its efforts. He, however, acknowledged that the game was difficult even for his main striker Romelu Lukaku.
“Liverpool’s midfield was really strong. They are faster than us when the game breaks. I tried with my substitutions to make us more dynamic in attack, but in reality, we lost power and energy and control in midfield. We had one shot on goal - well for you and the experts it is easy to speak but it is more difficult from the sidelines. In the second half Matic tired and I had no solutions on the bench.”
Manchester United travel to Portugal for a crunch Champions League clash with Benfica, opponents they have faced in the competition before.
They are still unbeaten this season but will be without Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick who are all out with injuries. Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw are expected to make the trip.
According to unverified reports, Jose Mourinho wants a pay rise to reflect what he achieved in his first season. He seems to be bent on managing Man Utd for more seasons and negotiations on a new contract are set to begin before the current season ends.
