Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United in December in the aftermath of their 3-1 defeat at the hands of rivals Liverpool
The Portuguese spent two and a half years as the manager of the 20-time league champions. During this time, he lifted the Europa League, the League cup and the Community Shield. The 55-year-old oversaw 144 matches at the helm of Manchester United, winning 84 and losing 29 of these. His last season, however, was particularly underwhelming and the Red Devils were languishing in the sixth spot, some 12 points behind the top 4 sides. They are in a much better position now and trail 4th placed Chelsea by just 3 points. Mourinho has been without a club for three weeks now and has been venturing into uncharted territories as he has been working as a pundit for broadcaster beIN Sports.
“I am happy with these three weeks, I am happy with this experience and I am going to have other experiences that normally I cannot have,“But I know me, and I know by the end of March I will be struggling with my happiness “I will analyse things, I don’t like to speak about it. But I’ve refused already three options because I didn’t feel that it is what I want, so I’m going to be calm in this aspect,” he said.
Mourinho was quite evidently at odds with many people inside the club, including executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. Mourinho said that he wasn’t provided with the same kind of backing in the transfer window that the likes of Klopp and Guardiola were by their respective clubs,
“In Liverpool, I think how many players were in Liverpool before Jurgen arrived? No Alisson (Becker), no (Virgil) Van Dijk, no (Andrew) Robertson, no (Mohamed) Salah, no (Roberto) Firmino, no (Sadio) Mane, no Fabinho, no (Georginio) Wijnaldum, no (Naby) Keita, so this is work in depth,” he said.
“In the case of Manchester City. In the first season, Guardiola was not a champion, it was really difficult and people were expecting a winning Manchester City.”
Well, it seems like Mourinho is just waiting for the perfect opportunity so that he can don his managing boots again. The Portuguese is not finished yet!
