Former Manchester United manager José Mourinho has hit out at his former club for giving him unfair treatment, despite the success he brought whilst in charge.

Mourinho, speaking on beIN Sports’ coverage of Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, accused his former clubs of not giving him the backing Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp receive at Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.

The Portuguese manager was sacked by Manchester United in December despite having won the EFL Cup, Community Shield and Europa League during his spell in charge.

Mourinho spoke on his time at United and Chelsea, his philosophy as a manager and detailed the conditions a potential future employer must have for him to succeed.

My philosophy depends. I would love to go to a club and to be in conditions to do for example what Jürgen and Pep did. You look to the team that Liverpool started the game with today, how many players were there before Jurgen arrived?”

“And when Pep was not happy with the four full-backs, in the same summer he bought four full backs that he likes. And when he bought Claudio Bravo and was not happy with Claudio Bravo, the next season he bought Ederson.”

Mourinho had some heavy criticism for Liverpool boss Klopp about his lack of trophies at the club despite receiving significant financial backing.

When Jürgen is in the club and wins absolutely nothing for three-and-a-half years and he still has the trust and confidence and conditions to try to keep going and going, this season they have a big chance to do it but would be the first time they win a trophy.

When questioned about his ‘boring’ style of play as a manager, Mourinho responded: “I think you are in the direction of a lie that has been told 1,000 times becoming truth and it’s not true.”

It does not seem like it will be long before we see Mourinho back in the dugout, with multiple rumours linking him to Ligue 1 clubs, Lyon being the favourite. However, the 56-year-old had a word of caution for future employers: “That’s why I was saying before that in my next job.”

“I will not be starting a conversation with a club without knowing what the club wants and what the club gives in terms of structure and in terms of the objectives.”
