Spotlight on Mourinho once more as Liverpool, Man City seek winning return

Spotlight on Mourinho once more as Liverpool, Man City seek winning return”

Luke Shaw has signed a bumper new five-year contract at Manchester United believed to be worth £195,000-per-week, representing an astonishing and admirable turnaround for the 23-year-old.

Mourinho made him one of his first signings when he took over at Old Trafford and, despite his age, he delivered in his first season.

But the 37-year-old has suggested he will pass up the opportunity despite links with a return to United.

"There have been ups and downs".

Shaw played one minute in United's next four Premier League games and further drew his manager's ire by withdrawing through injury before a trip to Swansea City. "I feel like we could sign Lionel Messi at the moment and he'd struggle in this team", he said.

Manchester United have lost eight of their last 13 Premier League games in London (W4 D1) - as many as they'd lost in their previous 39 visits to the capital (W18 D13 L8).

And according to a report by Zancan, although the club is reluctant to make any immediate decisions over Mourinho's future, a heavy defeat at Stamford Bridge - where United have only won once in the league since 2002 - could spell the end for Mourinho.

The England worldwide has returned to form this season, however, and has now been rewarded with a lucrative new deal.

"I'm still very young with a lot more to learn and I can't wait to continue my progress under Jose Mourinho". "I have a very good relationship with him, with the players and he also has a good relationship with the players".

United are lacking leaders and Mourinho is lacking backers in the dressing room with his job on the line after a poor start to the season.

"I think I knew how important this season was going to be, especially the start of it coming in the a year ago of (my contract)", he said. "We have an awesome group of players and the talent we have is scary, there are a lot of young lads that are hungry for trophies".

Merson added: "If United do lose, the pressure will nearly certainly crank up again on Jose Mourinho".

"I am delighted that we are keeping such a talented young English player with a bright future ahead of him".
