'I have a future without Manchester United': Mourinho

'I have a future without Manchester United': Mourinho

Solskjaer, who is now manager of Molde and has previously managed in the Premier League with Cardiff City, spent 11 years as a player at Old Trafford, scoring 91 goals in 235 games under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Jose Mourinho has said he has a future in management and vowed not to talk about the reasons behind his sacking by Manchester United.

United named former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Wednesday as their caretaker manager until the end of the season.

Mourinho said the club's difficulties with injuries had been a long-term issue.

With that in mind, a lot of Manchester United players - many of them former - seemed ready to move on and offer their opinions.

United has suffered its worst start to a season in 28 years under Mourinho's tenure. In recent months, he's been quick to remind fans and reporters of his history of success, but ultimately the failure and drama at Manchester United snowballed on him.

Eric Bailly has hinted there was trouble behind the scenes with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford. He was at United the same length of time as he was in his previous job at Chelsea, when he was also fired just before Christmas in 2015 in his third season after accusing his players of "betraying" him.

Phelan immediately took up coaching after his playing career, first as an assistant at Norwich before spells in a similar role with Blackpool and Stockport.

Press Association Sport understands United are considering their former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, now manager of Molde, with regard to the caretaker role, and Pochettino is believed to be the main target to take the reins next summer.

Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte are among the early bookmakers' favourites to take over.

"Then it's not my business, what happened at another club".

Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal in the United hotseat in the summer of 2016 and was tasked with leading the 20-time English champions back to the top of the domestic game after a barren three years since Sir Alex Ferguson's appointment. "I am more than happy", said the Portuguese, who left Pogba on the bench at Anfield.
