Jose Mourinho admits he deserved to be sacked as Manchester United manager – but he isn’t enjoying watching them struggle under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United were deservedly beaten 2-0 at West Ham on Sunday, a result which saw them drop down to eighth in the Premier League table.
The club were in sixth when Mourinho was sacked midway through last season, with fans disgruntled at what they saw as an overly defensive style of football.
“I’m not the right person to answer it,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports when asked about United’s problems.
“I was sacked, I probably deserved to be sacked because I was responsible as the manager, but the sad reality is that they are worse than before.
“And for me that is a sad thing. Maybe people think I’m enjoying the situation but I’m not enjoying it at all.”
“I have people in the club I love, I have lots of respect for the fans and for me it’s really sad because when a team is ‘boring’, you are boring but you can still get the results,” he added.
