His Reply About United Job;
“I am very focused on football. I am not a kid, I’m not a child; I spent my whole life playing football and now 12 years being a coach, we are in a business and the rumours are there.
“I completely understand what is going on — sometimes it is a positive or sometimes negative, but this kind of thing cannot distract me.
“What another club is doing is not my business, and I am not going to make the mistake to talk. Things get misunderstood and out of context.”
Manchester United next game will be against Chelsea in the English Premier League during the weekend.
