Mourinho not interested in Fergie’s job

Reports yesterday claimed the Special One was ready to replace Fergie as United chief.

His advisor Eladio Parames told The Sun last night: “Jose did not give an interview or speak with anyone about Alex Ferguson’s job.

“The contents of the article are ridiculous. First, it shows a lack of respect to Sir Alex, whom Jose is a great admirer of and believes will manage Manchester United for many years to come.

“Jose has a deal with Inter, which he plans to honour.

“And it shows a lack of respect to Manchester United in a week in which Inter are preparing to face them in an important Champions League match.

“Jose would not say that he will definitely beat Manchester United in Wednesday’s game.

“Of course he wants to beat United, but that is a different thing.”
