Jose Mourinho treated us to one of his classic tactical performances in Manchester United’s stalemate with Liverpool on Saturday.
What’s supposed to be one of the games of the season failed to live up expectation once again, thanks in part to the Portuguese’s master plan, which at least earned his side a point away from home against a top six rival.
The result has kept the Red Devils within two points of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but all isn’t well behind the scenes if the Daily Record are to be believed.
Journalist Duncan Castles, who is reasonably well connected at Old Trafford, reports that Ed Woodward is yet to start talks over a new deal for his manager, despite Mourinho being nearly halfway through his three-year contract, and that is proving a bone of contention.
He’s also thought to be frustrated at the club’s spending compared to other English and European rivals, notably Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, while Woodward has also been a little hesitant in recruitment.
United were underwhelming in the league during the Special One’s first season in charge, but he still led them to the EFL Cup and Europa League.
With questions about his future starting to be raised, Mourinho told Telefoot, as quoted by The Times, that he is unlikely to make this his last job.
“What I can say is that I am still a manager with questions, with ambitions, with a desire to do new things and I am sure that I will not finish my career here,” he said.
