Jose Mourinho has revealed his thoughts after being sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday, insisting the club has a future without him.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as United’s caretaker manager for the rest of the season, after Jose Mourinho was fired for failing in terms of style and substance on Tuesday morning.

The club have acted quickly to bring in their former striker and reserve team coach: Molde boss Solskjaer has been brought in until the end of the campaign and will be joined by first-team coach Mike Phelan, who will work alongside Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.

Mourinho, asked by Sky Sports News about the sudden end of his reign at Old Trafford, said: “I keep the good things and I don’t speak about anything that happened in the club. I could speak about not as good but that’s not me.

“Manchester United has a future without me and I have a future without Manchester United.

“It’s over, that’s me and that’s how I’ve always been. I was always very critical of managers that leave clubs and then they come out and they speak about the details of what happened, who is to blame. That’s not me.

“Until I get back to football I feel I have to right to live my normal life.”
