Jose Mourinho tells Man United star to ‘shut up’ and sign new deal

first_img1 Jose Mourinho says he told Marouane Fellaini to “sign the contract and shut up” after the Manchester United midfielder suffered an injury against Tottenham.The Belgian is facing a number of weeks on the sidelines with knee ligament damage.Fellaini is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season and has so far resisted offers to pen an extension.And Mourinho has revealed he made a cheeky attempt to get 30-year-old to sign before the extent of his injury was revealed.“I told him yesterday ‘sign the contract and shut up’,” Mourinho said with a laugh.“I told him ‘don’t gamble too much, sign the contract before you know the extent of the injury’.”On Fellaini’s injury, Mourinho added: “It’s not an anterior cruciate ligament. It’s not a complete rupture of any structure of the knee.“But we need him and the Champions League is arriving and there are lots of tough matches to play.“We will probably lose him for a few weeks, but I cannot say two, three, four, five at this moment.”last_img read more
