Jose Mourinho 'ready for 15 years' at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho ready for 15 years at Old Trafford
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed he is targeting a 15-year stay at Old Trafford, saying that he wants to restore the stability of the Alex Ferguson era.
Mourinho, who took over the Premier League giants last year, told the network's website that he is desperate to deliver sustained success over a long-term period just as Ferguson did over nearly three decades.
United have not won the Premier League title since Ferguson's retirement in 2013, with the club struggling to rediscover its dominance under David Moyes and
Louis van Gaal.
Mourinho has never spent longer than three years as manager of a club during his trophy-laden career.
But the 54-year-old, speaking as his team prepare to face Manchester City in Houston on Thursday in the latest leg of their US tour, insisted he saw United as a long-term project.
"I am ready for this," Mourinho said. "I am ready for the next 15, I would say. Here? Yes, why not? "I have to admit that it is very difficult because of the pressure around our jobs, everybody putting pressure on managers and things that people say — that we have to win, but in reality only one can win and every year it is getting
more difficult.
"This club, for so many years, was Sir Alex. People got used to it; people understood the great consequences of
that stability.
"After David [Moyes] and Mr [Louis] Van Gaal, I come to my second year and hopefully I can stay and give that stability that the club wants. I will try, but again, I will have to try to deserve that, but that's what I try every day that I work."
