Manchester United gaffer, Jose Mourinho could be heading towards the exit at Old Trafford after growing increasingly frustrated with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, as per reports.
Mourinho’s arrival has somewhat brought back the glory days at the Theatre of Dreams after the Special One won the Europa League along with the Community Shield and Carabao Cup in his debut season last year.
The Red Devils have started the 2017-18 campaign with a bang as well having won six of their opening eight league games. They are currently placed second in the Premier League table behind rivals Manchester City, who have been on a rampage this season.
But according to the report by Duncan Castles from the Daily Record, the Portuguese tactician appears to be growing frustrated with the club’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward.
According to the 54-year-old manager the major area of concern seems to be the ‘unnecessary bureaucratic and inefficient organisation’. Furthermore, Mourinho appears to have lost faith in Ed Woodward’s way of handling business, which has primarily risen due to his failure in landing key targets for the Portuguese.
It was also reported that because of the current state of events at Old Trafford Mourinho might not sign an extension, which has not yet been discussed, with the club.
Castles wrote: “There have been no discussions between the club’s Europa League winning coach and Ed Woodward over extending a three-year contract that is close to reaching its midpoint.”
The Red Devils boss himself is uncertain about a contract renewal, but while talking to French television channel TF1, he claimed that United wouldn’t be the end of his managerial career.
“What I can say is that I am still a manager with questions, with ambitions, with a desire to do new things and I do not think – I am sure – that I will not finish my career here,” Mourinho said.
