Jose Mourinho takes a dig at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Jose Mourinho has been speaking about Manchester United’s poor season.
Mourinho was fired in December and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer initially began making Mourinho look bad, winning nine of his first 10 games, and then knocking PSG out of the Champions League.
Since then it has unravelled spectacularly, and United finished in sixth.
Mourinho has been quoted by L’Equipe: “On Manchester United I only want to say two things.
“One is that time has spoken. Two, it’s the problems are still there.”
It’s hard to read Mourinho’s comments as anything but a dig at Solskjaer, while also defending his own reputation.
Mourinho clashed with Ed Woodward last summer and was not given the backing in the transfer market to do as he wanted.
Given the disastrous acquisition of Alexis Sanchez, some would argue that is just as well.
The pressure is on Woodward to back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer, and next year hopefully ‘time will speak’ in the Norwegian’s favour and prove him to be the right man for the job.
