Jose Mourinho has ruled out spending the rest of his career at Manchester United.

The Red Devils manager said in an interview with French television that he was certain he would work elsewhere.

Mourinho was appointed by United in May 2016 and led the club to the Europa League title last season.

His side are vying with neighbours Manchester City for top spot in the Premier League this term, but 54-year-old Mourinho is keeping his future options open.

He told TF1's Telefoot programme: "The only thing I can say is that I'm still a coach with worries, with ambitions, and with the desire to do new things.

"And I don't believe... no, I'm sure that I won't end my career here."

Asked if that meant at Manchester United, Mourinho said: "Yes."

Mourinho was responding to the question of whether he might one day be tempted to join Paris St Germain.

And Mourinho explained his son has taken the French capital giants to his heart.

"The other day, my son who lives in London went to Paris and not to Manchester to watch the match," Mourinho said.

Asked why his son chose that option, Mourinho said: "Because at the moment in Paris there is something special. Magic, quality, youth, it's fantastic."

Former translator Mourinho, who showed his multilingual skills by conducting the interview in French, has previously had high-profile spells in charge of Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini faces two weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury.

The 29-year-old was forced off during the first half of Belgium's 4-3 World Cup qualifying win over Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

There were initial fears Fellaini faced a lengthy spell on the sidelines, but the Belgian FA announced on Twitter: "Fellaini is out for a couple of weeks & #BELCYP. Scan ➡ left knee injury (MCL sprain). Get well soon Marouane!"

However, the injury does mean Fellaini will miss United's Premier League trip to rivals Liverpool on Saturday.

Lukaku a doubt for Belgium's World Cup Qualifiers

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has been cleared of serious injury after having his ankle scanned while on international duty with Belgium.

Lukaku needed to be checked after being hurt in United's 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday, in which he scored his 11th goal since joining the club from Everton in the summer.

The 24-year-old will now be put on a special training programme in the hope of proving his fitness for Belgium's World Cup qualifiers against Bosnia on Saturday and Cyprus on Tuesday.

A statement from the Belgian football association, the KBVB, read: "Romelu Lukaku underwent an MRI scan but no fracture or structural damage has been diagnosed.

"The next days he will follow an individual training program.

"It is however too early to state that he won't be match fit for the Bosnia and/or Cyprus game."

News the injury is not serious will be a relief to United ahead of their Premier League trip to Liverpool on October 14.
