Football Notes: José Mourinho Says He Will Not Finish Career At ManU
ManU Manager José Mourinho said that he "does not believe he will finish his career at the Premier League club." He "has never spent more than four years in one spell at any of his seven clubs." Mourinho also said he thought that Paris St. Germain was a "fantastic" club (BBC, 10/15).
Former England Manager Sam Allardyce "has ruled himself out of contention to be Scotland's next boss." The 62-year-old "took charge of just one game as England manager" after taking over in July '16. Scotland is "looking for a new manager" after Gordon Strachan left his position last week (BBC, 10/15).
FIFA extended the int'l window by a day to allow New Zealand and Peru more time "for the logistics of playing their long-haul World Cup playoff in November." Oceania champion New Zealand will host Peru at Wellington Regional Stadium on Nov. 11 in the first leg, with the second leg to be played in Lima on Nov. 15, New Zealand Football confirmed. NZF CEO Andy Martin said in a statement, "With what is at stake -- a place in the FIFA World Cup -- we are pleased that FIFA have extended the window by a day and ensured that both teams will have a chance to travel, recover from their jet-lag" (REUTERS, 10/15).
