Jose Mourinho’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has dismissed reports claiming the Portuguese wrote a letter to decision makers at Manchester United outlining his ideas for the club, according to the Daily Mail.
With current Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal continuing to look unstable in his role in charge at Old Trafford, speculation is rife over the notion of Mourinho taking over from him.
Ever since he was sacked following a disastrous run of form by Chelsea, the 52-year old has constantly been touted as the Dutchman’s successor.
Circulating reports yesterday has claimed the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan coach had penned a six-page letter outlining why he should be given the reins, if and when van Gaal departs.
He was reported to have given a ‘forensic analysis’ of the squad, as well as stating he is willing to change his style in management to suit the needs of the club.
However, super-agent Jorge Mendes has since categorically denied the ‘totally absurd’ suggestions, despite Man United’s earlier refusal to comment on the matter.
‘It does not occur to anyone that a coach like Jose Mourinho can write letters to clubs offering his services’, Mendes wrote on www.gestifute.com.
‘It is absolutely ridiculous and totally absurd.’
