In 2016, after he got appointed in the month of May, Mourinho led his team to the League Cup, as well as the Europa League, and thus became the first ever team in the history of the club to win a big title in his very first season. In fact, the Europa League victory is MUFC’s first ever win in this competition. Naturally, he is considered as a valued manager by Manchester United.
In the current season, however, they are sitting in a distant second place behind Manchester City, the topper of the Premier League table, under the management of Pep Guardiola. They are still in the running for the FA Cup, as well as the Champions League.
54 years old Mourinho, in a recent statement, said that he is proud and honoured to be the manager of Manchester United. Additionally, he thanked the owners and Mr. Woodward, the executive vice-chairman, for recognising his dedication and hard work and dedication, and for trusting that he is the right boss for such a great team for the foreseeable future.
He further said that the team has set extremely high standards after they won three titles in just a single season, but he expects his team to always stay on target to aim such standards again. He believes that the conditions being created now will lay the path for a successful and amazing future for the club.
When Mourinho first joined the team as a replacement of Louis van Gaal, he signed a deal of three years. Mourinho contract extension will keep him in the team till 2020.
