″His words have aged so well…″


In 2019, Mourinho said guiding Manchester United to a second-place finish in the Premier League in 2017/18 had been one of the greatest achievements of his career.

Rio Ferdinand, a former Manchester United player, on Tuesday apologized to José Mourinho for the criticism he made of the Portuguese coach in 2019, when he said that taking Manchester United to second place in the Premier League League in 2017/18 had been one of the biggest achievements of his career.

“José Mourinho’s words have aged so much, but so well… I would like to apologize for the way I looked at and judged him,” he began by declaring on his own Youtube channel ‘FIVE’ .

“I still think there were flaws in the way he treated people and in certain situations he was involved in. But we can see that bad things happened behind the scenes, at the back then we didn’t know how good they were. Obviously Jose Mourinho knew that,” added Rio Ferdinand.

It is recalled that José Mourinho spent two and a half seasons in charge of Manchester United, between the summer of 2016 and December 2018, leading the red devils to a second place in the Premier League during the second season at Old Trafford.
