JOSEPH MOURINHO ADVICE INJURED FELLANI

Mourinho's advice for injured Fellaini to Shut up and sign your new contract.  Jose Mourinho the Manchester United manager told Marouane Fellaini to "sign the contract and shut up" as the injured midfielder nears the end of his deal.

Fellaini, 30, is set to miss several weeks after suffering a knee injury in United's 2-0 loss to Tottenham in the Premier League Wednesday.

The Belgium international is out of contract at the end of the season and Mourinho, in lighthearted fashion, said he had told the midfielder to sign a new deal.

"I told him yesterday, 'sign the contract and shut up'," Mourinho told a news conference Friday.

"I told him, 'don't gamble too much, sign the contract before you know the extent of the injury.'"

Mourinho is unsure exactly how long he will be without Fellaini, who has made 12 Premier League appearances this season. The Portuguese tactician revealed Fellaini could miss anywhere between two and five weeks.
