REVEALED: Mendes statement on Mourinho released with Man Utd approval

The official comment released by agent Jorge Mendes over Jose Mourinho's future was done after consulting with Manchester United's board, it has been revealed.

The Irish Independent says Mourinho was granted his wish of a formal assurance from United that his job is safe, with the club giving their blessing to a rare public statement from Mendes that there is no current prospect of a change at Old Trafford.

United have been reluctant to make public pronouncements, with vice-chairman Ed Woodward of the belief that private assurances are sufficient.

In January, Mourinho signed a contract extension until 2020.
