Ever since he was waived off his duties as a Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has maintained a stern silence over his former employers. Whether it be a situation that led to his sacking or his hefty release clause, Mourinho has maintained a high standard of professionalism.
After losing the dressing room at Old Trafford and failing to garner performances from key players like Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial, the English club hierarchy decided to pull the plug on Mourinho's contract and appointed former player and legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the caretaker manager.
Ole Gunnar has proved to be a breath of fresh air for both, players and fans. After winning 14 out of his first 17, which includes wins over arch-rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham, it's a matter of when, not if, Solskjaer will get the win.
Having adopted a new role during his time off, Jose Mourinho is doing his punditry duties with the Russian network RT. In a recent analysis program, the 'Special One', he talked about Ole's impact and how pleased he was for Manchester United after the English club registered a historic win and knocked out PSG from Champions League.
Mourinho: “Ten Hag from Ajax, Solskjaer from Manchester United, incredible results, so credit to them. Manchester United, I would say the mental side of it, the self-belief, very special days for these two men” #mufc [RT] pic.twitter.com/ufETK2c2eu— United Xtra (@utdxtra) March 7, 2019
Unlike some others, (*coughs* Paul Ince) Mourinho was in awe of Solskjaer and Ajax manager Ten Hag's achievements. It is a testament to his professionalism how he gave full credit of Manchester United and Ajax's qualification to Solskjaer. Considering that Ole was the man who made him jobless, Mourinho's respect in our hearts = 1000000%.
If you're the one of those who is really into such programs, then you'll know that Jose's analyses are almost always spot on. No matter what people say about him being an outdated coach, his tactical knowledge still makes him a 'Special One' of punditry game.
