Mourinho spent two and a half years at Old Trafford before
being sacked in December 2018 with the club in disarray.
The Portuguese won the Europa League and League Cup,
finishing second in the Premier League and losing an FA Cup final.
But his reign was characterised by clashes with players,
most notably Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.
Still looking for his next club, Mourinho feels that his
work at United was overlooked and unfairly derided.

“I can just say that the Manchester United time was not an
easy time,” he told Sky Sports News.
“I always felt that to win the Europa League was fantastic
and it didn’t look like it was, the way people approach it.
“To finish second was even more than that, so probably I was
feeling a little bit like: ‘Wow, I’m working well, I’m giving everything and
I’m not getting what I think that deserves’.
“The only thing I can promise you is that when I have the
next club, the next project, I will be so, so happy that I will walk into that
press conference with a big smile. That I can promise.”
