Jose Mourinho believes the problems which blighted his reign as Manchester United are still evident at the club, claiming the underlying issues are not limited to only the players.
Mourinho was axed as United boss back in December following a dismal run of results and a public falling out with record signing Paul Pogba.
But when asked whether Pogba was the biggest problem at Old Trafford, Mourinho offered a definitive analysis about the deep-rooted issues at the club.
‘The problems are there, you can say that these are the players, the organisation, the ambition, I only say that I can not say yes when you ask if Paul was the only one responsible,’ Mourinho told L’Equipe.
‘I said nine or 10 months ago that after winning eight Championships, finishing second with United may have been my greatest achievement,’ he added. ‘Now people understand.’
‘I do not always do my analysis publicly on Manchester United. I do not want to talk about it and I have the feeling that I do not need to speak, that time gives explanations. ‘About United I want to say only two things: One is that time has spoken. Two is that the problems are still there.’
