Mourinho moves to quell Woodward rift talk at Man Utd

David de Gea Manchester United Liverpool

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says it easy to guess the side he will pick to face Benfica in the Champions League tonight.

If Mourinho was to leave Old Trafford, there are a host of top managers waiting in the wings to take over including three Premier League rivals.

Simon Gleave, head of analysis at Gracenote Sports, said: "Manchester United's 4-1 win in Moscow on matchday two pushed their chance of reaching the last-16 up to 98%".

The Sweden centre-back had always been a target for United, who forked out an initial £30.75 million to bring him in from the Portuguese champions during the summer. "In one day it says I am going to sign a five-year contract, £1 billion per season", said Mourinho.

'I think that's the answer - the answer is that nothing is happening'. I think it's impossible to last for so long.

'If in this moment I want to finish my career in four or five years, my ambition would be to end my career at Manchester United.


"I was asked how is it possible in modern football that any manager is going to last 15 to 20 years in the same club". I don't think I am going to end my career at Manchester United.

No fewer than five players will be unavailable for Mourinho this evening at the Estádio da Luz.

"Within that context, I think that one point away against the strongest of the three teams with us in the group is a positive result".

Zlatan Ibrahimović (knee), Paul Pogba (hamstring), Michael Carrick (calf), Marouane Fellaini (knee) and Eric Bailly (groin) all miss out.

When is Benfica vs Manchester United? "But there's a big contradiction there because he says "let's move on and forget what happened" but then he spends 10 minutes speaking about what he thinks happened and didn't happen".
