Mourinho stated in an interview on the French TV that he has no plans to finish his managerial career at Man Utd and hinted at moving on to Ligue 1 giants PSG.

His comments bemused many pundits and former players who had thought that the Portuguese wanted to stay at Old Trafford for the long-term.

But the ‘Special One’ drew heavy criticism from pundits and former players for deploying negative tactics in their goalless draw against Liverpool at the weekend.

And the Gunners legend Ian Wright jokingly said that the Red Devils boss used his interview on French TV to divert attention away from the goalless draw against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

“The way they played the other day, he’s got to do something to reflect away from that performance,” Wright joked on Sky Sports’ The Debate show.
