Mourinho says he will not discuss nature of Manchester United departure

Manchester United's top brass have been left fuming after Jose Mourinho spent a whopping $704 million on buying talent in his little over two years in charge - yet has left the club with very little to show for it.

United sacked manager Jose Mourinho earlier today following Sunday's 3-1 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool - a result which left the 20-time champions 19 points adrift of the leaders.

In the 24 hours that have passed since his sacking, recriminations have already begun with reports emerging from Old Trafford that Mourinho was unpopular with his players, had not spoken face-to-face with medical staff at the club in almost 18 months and had alienated the boardroom after wearing a hoody and trainers to a Munich air disaster memorial.

Players wore suit and ties as did officials and other coaching staff at the club.

"I want to see us demolish s***ty teams at Old Trafford one week and then go to Arsenal and crush their spirit with cheap goals, dirty fouls, time wasting, mind games, f***ing everything".

Mourinho, who won the EFL Cup and the Europa League during his two-and-a-half years in charge, later issued a statement in which he said he had been "immensely proud" to take charge of United.
