Luke Shaw deserves a lot of respect for what he has said about Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho’s turbulent time at Manchester United was brought to an inevitable end after he was sacked on Tuesday.

The Portuguese had spent three years at the club, winning three trophies.

However, his relationship with both fans and players took a serious dive this season as his notorious third season syndrome struck without mercy.

United lurched from one woeful performance to the next before Ed Woodward finally took action, ending Mourinho’s tenure at the club.

Since then, there has almost been a celebratory mood around the club, especially after Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer was brought in as Mourinho’s interim replacement.

However, Luke Shaw, who endured some very difficult times under the now sacked manager, was quick to remind people of what Mourinho achieved.

“It’s not very nice when something as big as that (Mourinho’s dismissal) happens at the club, but I think we all, as players and as a team, show respect in what happened,” Shaw said.

“People might be quick to forget what Jose did for United - the three trophies he won - he did a lot.


“One of the trophies (Europa League) was one we had not won before, and he took us to three trophies in one season.

“So those people need to respect him and remember what he did, not only us as a team to win those trophies but the fans as well.”

Good point, Luke.

While the last few months will leave a sour taste in the mouths of the Old Trafford faithful, you simply can’t deny the fact that Mourinho did enjoy significant success at the club.

Now, Solsjkaer will be looking to right the ship and haul his new side back into contention for the top four.
