Jose Mourinho has signed a new contract until 2020, with the option of another year with Manchester United

The 54-year-old Portuguese's previous deal at Old Trafford was due to expire in 2019 but he has opted to stay on with the Red Devils.

He said he was "delighted" that United "feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future".

He added: "I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to [chief executive Ed] Woodward."

Mourinho, appointed as Louis van Gaal's successor in May 2016, won the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season.

This season United are second in the Premier League, behind runaway leaders Manchester City, with the club still in the Champions League and FA Cup.
