Mourinho was sacked as Manchester United manager on Tuesday following a 3-1 defeat by arch-rivals and Premier League leaders Liverpool on Sunday.

It was a result which left the club in sixth place in the standings, 19 points off the top.

His departure marked the first time since his days as Uniao de Leiria coach in 2002 that Mourinho has left a club without winning a domestic league title.

He has spent two years at Old Trafford, which was perceived to be his dream job.(NAN)
