Paul Scholes reveals how jose mourinho got himself sacked by Man Utd

United legend Paul Scholes

Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, has insisted Jose Mourinho deliberately got himself sacked by the club.

Mourinho was finally axed by United last month, after a dreadful start to the season and walked away with £15million in compensation.

Scholes was his fiercest critic throughout his two-and-a-half-year reign, with the pair often verbally jousting in public.

And Scholes’ opinion of Mourinho hasn’t changed, after he was asked about him by Norwegian TV station TV2.

I felt he (Mourinho) didn’t want to be there.

“He engineered his move away perfectly in the end.

“His press conferences were embarrassing, so negative, it was obvious in the end the players didn’t want to play for him. The right thing happened in the end.”

Scholes said he suspected that Mourinho might be trying to find a way out of Old Trafford, when he fell out with club captain Antonio Valencia, who Scholes played alongside from 2009 to 2013.

He fell out with Antonio Valencia who is the nicest man in the world. It’s impossible to fall out with Antonio Valencia.

“That was a big sign for me that something wasn’t quite right,” he added.
