Jose Mourinho: Manchester United boss happy at club, says agent

Romelu Lukaku also said he had suffered from fatigue at the start of the Premier League season

Jose Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes has released a rare statement in an attempt to quash suggestions that the Manchester United boss could be on his way out of the club.

United, who have not lifted the Premier League trophy since 2013, finished 19 points adrift of Pep Guardiola's champions last season.

José Mourinho admits he can not afford to play Fred, the fourth most expensive player in Manchester United's history, unless his team becomes tighter defensively.

Mesut Ozil of Arsenal celebrates after he scores his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Leicester City at Emirates Stadium on October 22, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

The Brazilian cost £50m but has been dropped by the manager, with the midfielder not in the 18-man squad for Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Mourinho has come under renewed pressure after Wednesday's 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal extended their winless run in the Premier League to four games.

"He's got good players this lad".

You Can Watch The Game Awards Right Here with Bill
As far as game announcements go, we already know a few confirmed guests and have hints at a number of others. Are you excited to watch The Game Awards this year?

"I think we controlled the game, the second half better than the first", Emery said.

Do you think Ozil should go straight back into the line-up?

"[Being consistently in the top four] is not easy because there's Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, City, United, and now Everton and Leicester or different teams that are in our level of investment", he said.

"It depends also the way of our evolution but also the evolution of others, the ones that are above us".

Jose Mourinho has had a tough start to the season, but Diogo Dalot is thrilled to be playing under his compatriot (Martin Rickett/PA).

"If they keep going in the same direction and if their ambition, investment, everything, continues that's one thing".

The Gunners can take that to 21 matches against the Terriers with Ozil's return to the side likely to be delayed till they play Qarabag in the Europa League next week.
