Jose Mourinho reckons he won't finish his managerial career at Manchester United, and spoke about being a coach with other 'ambitions'.

The Portuguese tactician, in his second season at Old Trafford, has never spent longer than four seasons at any one club before, and he was speaking on French television show Telefoot on TF1 about his long term prospects.

He said, as translated and reported by BBC Sport: "I'm still a coach with worries, with ambitions, and with the desire to do new things. I don't believe, no, I'm sure that I won't end my career here." Asked if that meant at Manchester United, Mourinho said: "Yes."

The 54-year-old enjoyed a pretty good first campaign in charge of the Red Devils last season, delivering the EFL Cup, the Europa League title and therefore an automatic Champions League spot and a Community Shield.

He was miles away from challenging for the Premier League title in 2016/17, but fans have been led to believe by their impressive start so far in 2017/18 that they could go close this time around. Then one factors in Mourinho's record at other clubs in his second season in charge, and everything points to a genuine United title challenge.

The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss also revealed in his interview, in which he spoke French, that his son had been to watch Paris Saint-Germain. He said: "Why Paris? Because there's something special. Magic, quality, youth, it's fantastic."

Perhaps nothing to be read into but it's now on record, just in case...
