Jose Mourinho has spoken for the first time since being sacked as Manchester United manager, telling Sky Sports News he still has a “future” in football.
Speaking on the streets of central London just a day after he left the Lowry hotel in Manchester following his dismissal, Mourinho simply said it is “game over” at Old Trafford.
“We could speak about so many good things, [some] not as good, but that’s not me,” said Mourinho. “It’s finished. Manchester United have a future without me and I have a future without United.”
Mourinho was told of his fate at around 9 am on Tuesday in a face-to-face meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at United’s Carrington training base, Sky Sports News understands.
