Jose Mourinho has attempted to reassure Manchester United fans he isn’t leaving the club. Speculation has been rife that Mourinho will leave Old Trafford at the end of this season or when his current contract expires in 2019. He has been linked with the manager’s job at Paris Saint-Germain since the start of this season.
Many Manchester United fans have worried about Mourinho’s commitment to the club due to his current living arrangements. The manager has decided against purchasing a house in Manchester and has chosen to live in a hotel.
Supporters have worried his decision to stay in a hotel means he isn’t committed to the long-term future of Manchester United. However, Mourinho recently addressed the fears many Manchester United fans have expressed.
“I don’t want anyone to be worried, because I live in a two square metres room,” the manager said. “I am living in an apartment inside of a hotel, where I have all the comfort, the support, where I have everything I want like I am living in a house.”
The Manchester Evening News argues that modern Premier League football managers have such a short life span at a club that it makes more sense for them to live in a hotel or apartment.
Mourinho’s Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League. The Red Devils sit one point ahead of rivals Chelsea and three ahead of Liverpool. Manchester United will meet Stoke City on Monday night. The Potters recently sacked manager Mark Hughes after four-plus years in charge.
Fantasy impact – Jose Mourinho
Mourinho’s fantasy impact has been quite negative for FPL managers choosing Manchester United players. Sure, David De Gea has scored 114 points. It is the best for a goalkeeper. But Romelu Lukaku’s 99 is next best on the team. It’s good for fourth in terms of forwards. That’s great, but Marcus Rashford’s 71 isn’t anything special. Even Manchester United old boy Wayne Rooney has tallied more FPL points this term. Fantasy managers need to be careful who they pick and choose when Mourinho’s teams are involved.
