The Portuguese manager was subject to massive criticism by fans, when the Red Devils were struggling to be in the title contention and eventually out of the top-4.
With the pressure by fans, Manchester United had to terminate Mourinho’s contract in the end in the winter, when the team was in absolute ruins.
Indeed Manchester United were short of resources which were required to triumph the Premier League. However, Mourinho was being caught by almost all the managers and he surely had worst of his performances with the English giants only.
Now, Mourinho has taken a rest from managing, and presently is a football pundit. Whereas, Solskjaer is vying with the English clubs for the Premier League victory.
