Former manager Jose Mourinho has been talking about his time with Manchester United.
Mourinho is expected to make a return to management this season, after being out of work since being sacked by the Reds in December.
It still remains unclear what role the Portuguese boss will return to football in, but has already turned down a £89m offer to manage in China as he still has ambitions of a top European club, as per the Telegraph.
During his time at Old Trafford, Mourinho split the fanbase with many not wanting the appointment in the first place, whereas others believed he could still solve the club’s problems, despite his uncharacteristically pragmatic approach for a United team.
In an interview with Sky Sports below, Mourinho explains that his ‘good work’ at the Reds was not fully appreciated, after Europa League success and then a second place finish in the following season.
There is no doubt that he did have some success at Old Trafford, but with £400m spent on the squad (BBC), there was still little progress actually being made and the Portuguese manager’s negative style was what really irked fans, who would say he didn’t respect the club’s traditions of attacking football.
It’s understandable Mourinho feels hard done by but by the end things had turned toxic and his position became untenable. It will be interesting to see what role he takes up in the future and how he adapts to his new surroundings.

Was Mourinho's success at Old Trafford fully appreciated?
"I always felt that to win the Europa League was fantastic and it didn't look like it was."
