Jose Mourinho received an absolutely massive pay-off after Man United sacking

The likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford have looked like completely different players under the Norwegian interim boss, and it will be fascinating to hear what Mourinho has to say about their dramatic upturn in form.

Jose Mourinho is now without a job after being sacked as Manchester United manager last month.

The improved contract United agreed with Mourinho a year ago was due to run until the end of the 2019-20 season, with an option of a further season.

The Red Devils informed the 55-year-old that his services were no longer required at Old Trafford on December 18 .

Mourinho's first fully-fledged job as a manager was with the Eagles where he took over from former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes in 2000.

It was never going to be an easy season after both Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left but Julen Lopetegui had a nightmare time before being replaced by Santiago Solari.

Mourinho's time at Real between 2010-2013 - which brought a league title and a Spanish Cup but saw them largely play second fiddle to Barcelona - ended as it did at United and Chelsea, with bad results and discord in the dressing room.

"I felt that when I returned to Chelsea".

"Today I have no intention of returning to Portugal".

"When a professional returns or is invited to return to a club, it's a great honour. He is very relaxed about it and would be happy to wait until the end of the season if he needs to", a source reportedly told Mail Online.

And Mourinho has once again refused to speak in a bad light about former club Manchester United.

It will be interesting to hear the Portuguese's opinions on that match, but everyone will be tuning in to find out what he has to say about his final few months at Manchester United.

Mourinho and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino are the front-runners for the job when Real do make a decision on Lopetegui's long-term successor, but the latter is not available at the moment and is likely to cost more than £40m to get out of his contract in north London.
