Jose Mourinho has told Sky Sports correspondents that he and the club will surely survive without the other after his sack, 24 -hour after he was dismissed from the hot seat at Old Trafford.

While a significant part of the football world has been talking about United’s decision and what the future may hold for Mourinho, the dismissed Portuguese manager was moderately tight-lipped on his tenure at Old Trafford and plans as he showed up publicly since the news broke.
Trailed by reporters as he left his residence in London, Mourinho reacted to inquiries from Sky Sports saying that both himself and Manchester United have future without the other.
HEe starts by saying hello then, when asked if has anything to say about the last 24 hours, adds: “No, you know me.”
“I think you know me, I don’t change,” the 55-year-old said.
“What I did when I left Chelsea, for example, is that same that I’m going to do now.
“I keep the good things and I don’t speak about anything that happened in the club. I could speak about not as good but that’s not me.
“Manchester United has a future without me and I have a future without Manchester United.
“It’s over, that’s me and that’s how I’ve always been. I was always very critical of managers that leave clubs and then they come out and they speak about the details of what happened, who is to blame. That’s not me.
“Until I get back to football I feel I have to right to live my normal life.”

He at that point took United to second in the Premier League during the 2017-18 season, guaranteeing Champions League football for the second season consecutively at Old Trafford.
