London: Jose Mourinho has written a six-page job application to top English football club Manchester United, hoping to succeed Louis van Gaal as manager, reported The Independent. However, Mourinho's agent dismissed the report as 'absurd'.
The Independent claimed that the 52-year-old Mourinho outlined in detail his blueprint to resuscitate Manchester United, who slumped to a 0-1 loss to Southampton on Saturday. After the defeat, the frustrated Old Trafford fans booed their team off the pitch.
According to the report, Mourinho used the letter to pledge his commitment to adapting his style of management to the Manchester team. IANS
