Jose Mourinho has broken his silence after being sacked by Manchester United, insisting he will be back in football and refused to blame anybody for his failure.
The Portuguese’s time at Old Trafford was cut short after two and a half years despite penning a new contract in January.
The 55-year-old splashed out close to £400m on 11 players during his time at the club, but results and the style of play were deemed unsatisfactory.
Failure to fully develop young players, another trait of the Sir Alex Ferguson era, also went against Mourinho, but the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has now spoken out.
He told Sky Sports: “Man United has a future without me and I have a future without United. Why should I share with you or the supporters any of my feelings? It’s over. That’s the way I’ve always been, I was critical of managers of other clubs who speak about what happened and who is to blame for, that’s not me.
“I want to finish like it happened yesterday and I like to say it’s game over. I hope that you media respect this way of myself to be to react to this kind of situation until I get back into football I have the right to live my life. I go shopping and for a walk, that’s what I want to do.
“Manchester United is in the past.”
United were forced to pay Mourinho £15m to leave after giving him a contract extension in January.
Mourinho ended his tenure after 144 matches in charge, winning 84, losing 28 and drawing 32 for a win ratio of 58.33 percent.
United continue to search for success since Sir Alex’s departure in 2013, with David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal also failing to deliver.
