After being silent, finally the Portuguese coach, Jose Mourinho, was willing to talk about the dismissal that had just been carried out by Manchester United. Although it ended sadly, the former Real Madrid coach remained flattered and honored to have handled a club as big as Manchester United. Not to forget, Mourinho is also grateful to the people who have worked well together with him at Old Trafford.
Just two days after the severe defeat at Derby North West against Liverpool last weekend, Manchester United announced a surprising decision about their agreement to part with Portugal manager Jose Mourinho. Yes, after two and a half seasons in handling the English Premier League giants, the former Chelsea coach was kicked out of the manager’s seat following a series of disappointing results earlier this season, including when visiting Anfield last weekend.
Of course this dismissal was very disappointing for Jose Mourinho, who had also previously experienced similar things when dealing with Real Madrid and then Chelsea. The 55-year-old coach had been silenced in connection with the dismissal, until finally he recently spoke up and claimed to be proud of having had the opportunity to deal with the Red Devils.
“I am very proud to wear the Manchester United emblem since the first day arrived here and I believe all fans admit that. Just like with my previous club, I have worked with some amazing people and I believe some of them will be friends for the rest of my life,” said Mourinho.
Furthermore, the Special One spoke about his decision to be silent after the dismissal, and he believes the press and media understand the reasons behind this.
“I know you all [media] are aware of my professional principles. Every time a round is closed, I show the greatest respect and I don’t make any comments about former colleagues. Hopefully the media will also show respect for my position and let me live a normal life until the moment I decide to return to football. Merry Christmas.”
