Jose Mourinho has finally spoken out about his former club Manchester United for the first time since getting the sack last month.
The Portuguese tactician was shown the Old Trafford exit door midway through December, following a string of inconsistent displays, coupled with numerous off-the-pitch issues.
Jose not only fell out with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, but his relationship with team talisman Paul Pogba also broke down to the point of no return.
The 55-year-old has since been replaced by Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has taken up the interim managerial role at the Theatre of Dreams.
Now, after nearly a month after his departure from Manchester, Mourinho has finally made a public appearance and had a word or two with the media.
In a brief interview, the decorated gaffer spoke to Portuguese paper Correio da Manha about the Red Devils, but refused to utter a single bad word about his ex-employers.
“The chapter is finished and you don’t go around making criticism. The other thing I have learned is to respect the clubs who want me and those who don’t want me.”
