Jose Mourinho addresses Man United problem as sacked as AS Roma manager



| Last Updated:


Jose Mourinho believes there are problems on and off the pitch at his former club Manchester United after being sacked by AS Roma.

Mourinho, 60, was dismissed by Roma on Tuesday morning after a poor spell of form so far this season, leaving them ninth in the Serie A table.

The Portuguese manager has enjoyed success at the Italian club since taking over in May 2021. He won the club the European Conference League during his first season in charge and then reached the Europa League final the following season, which was eventually lost to Sevilla.

Now looking ahead to his next challenge, Mourinho has opened up on the challenges faced at his former club United for both him and the managers who have followed.

The three-time Premier League winner believes that there are still players at Old Trafford who will contribute to the failure in the club, as well as people outside of the playing field.

“There are still people in that club, and when I say people, I mean some players but also some other people that are not players, that are still there when I told [United] after two months: ‘With these people, you are never going to do it.’ And they are still there,” he recently said on the Obi One podcast.

“At Manchester United, I changed a player at half-time… his agent was then accusing me of bullying.

“I had to change. I remember these times, and I laugh about these times, but it’s different times.”

Mourinho was known for his difficulties with some of the players at United when he was manager, particularly with Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

The Portuguese manager spent two and a half years with the club between 2016 and 2018 and won the Europa League as well as the Carabao Cup.
