Jorge Mendes had spoken of what he deemed false rumors of Mourinho leaving the Old Trafford set, and the manager used his pre-match press conference before Wednesday’s Champions League match with Valencia to respond to questions on the matter.

From The Manchester Evening News:

“Which statement?” Mourinho asked. “No. I’ve nothing to do with the statement, is just [a] statement, is not my statement. No, I didn’t know at all and I don’t care about it.”

He was later asked about his close relationship with Valencia, and again stressed his commitment to United.

“Nobody in Manchester or connected with Manchester cares more about the club than myself. And three years ago I was not in Manchester and was far from being connected with Manchester. We the professionals feel everything, every day, every second.”
