Jose Mourinho, speaking for the first time since his sacking by Manchester United, has told Sky Sports that Manchester United was in the past and he has a future in football without them.
Ed Woodward, Chief Executive Officer of the Old Trafford club, decided after the embarrassing 3-1 mauling by Liverpool over the weekend that the slide Manchester United was experiencing under Mourinho, which had seen them fall 19 points behind their bitter rivals, with the EPL yet to reach the halfway stage, had to be arrested and duly dismissed Mourinho.
“We could speak about so many good things, some not as good, but that’s not me. It’s finished. Manchester United have a future without me and I have a future without United.” he told Sky Sports News.
Shedding some light on his mindset following the sacking and how he intends to spend his time away from football, Mourinho said:
“Why should I be sharing more now, even with the supporters, any of my feelings?
“That’s the way I’ve always been. I’ve been critical of managers that speak about details about what’s happened and who is to blame. That’s not me.
“Until I get back to football, I think I have my right to live my life like I do now. That’s what I want to do.
“I go for my little shopping, I go for my little walks, like this.
“Manchester United is past.”
