Mourinho finally breaks silence after Man Utd exit

Jose Mourinho finally breaks silence after Manchester United exit

December 19, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Portuguese manager has spoken for the first time following his sack on Tuesday.

Ex-Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has expressed that he retains positive memories about his stint with the English outfit despite his sack on Tuesday. Having led the Red Devils to a League Cup and Europa League win in his two-and-a-half-year stint, the 55-year-old was shown the exit door with his "Third Season Syndrome" kicking in at the club.

While a series of below-par performances have seen Manchester United seating in sixth on the league log, Mourinho has frequently been in the news in recent times for falling out with his players – especially Paul Pogba. Following his exit, the Red Devils have appointed former star Ole Gunner Solskjaer to take over the club temporarily while they put measures in place to make a permanent appointment next summer.

Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports following his departure, Jose Mourinho expressed fondness for the good times he enjoyed at Manchester United. However, he iterated that he will not talk about what went wrong at the club.

"I keep the good things and I don't speak about anything that happened in the club. We could speak about so many good things, not as good, but that's not me. It's finished.

"I know that you're all aware of my professional principles. Each time a chapter is closed I show my deepest respect and I don't make any comments about my former colleagues.

"I have worked with some wonderful people and I believe that some will be my friends for life.

"Manchester United has a future without me and I have a future without United," Mourinho added.

"Why should I be sharing more now, even with the supporters, any of my feelings? It's over. That's the way I've always been.

"I've been critical of managers that leave clubs and speak about what's happened and who's to blame. That's not me. I just want to finish like it happened yesterday and I'd like to say it's game over. I hope you media respect this way for me to be.

"Until I get back to football I have my right to live my normal life. That's what I want to do. United is in the past."
