Mourinho on Manchester United links: 'No job would move me from Chelsea'

Jose Mourinho says a lot of things. Some are exaggerated, some are entertaining, some are insightful. With his name inevitably linked to Manchester United's recent managing vacancy, he spoke again, and in emphatic terms.

At his press conference in the build-up to Chelsea's crucial Premier League game against Liverpool on Sunday, Mourinho addressed the speculation linking him to the throne left behind by David Moyes. Mourinho, in clear terms, said he wouldn't be leaving Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford -- or anywhere else.

"I don't know how anybody could think about that," Mourinho said. "I left Real Madrid to come specifically to Chelsea. I signed a four-year contract with Chelsea. I told Chelsea they never have to worry about me, because I don't want to leave. I will stay here until the club wants me to leave. No job would move me from Chelsea."

KLINSMANN: Manchester United wrong to sack Moyes

Mourinho also issued a statement of condolence for Tito Vilanova, the former Barcelona manager who passed away friday at 45 after battling with throat cancer. Mourinho, when he was Real Madrid's manager, infamously poked Vilanova in the eye during a scuffle after the second leg of the 2011 Spanish SuperCopa.

"Tito Vilanova’s passing is a sad day for football, for Barcelona and most importantly for his family and friends. On behalf of everybody at Chelsea Football Club I send my deepest condolences at this most difficult time," Mourinho said.
