It has been confirmed that the Red Devils will end up with the lowest so far Premier League total points after a demoralizing 4-0 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. United can now finish with just 61 points if they win Crystal Palace last day – three less than the previous lowest in 2013/14.

Mourinho received a lot of criticism during his time at the helm, and after leaving the club he said his second place was the best achievement of his career so far despite winning Champions League and Premier League on several occasions. Speaking after his dismissal, the 59-year-old told beIN Sports 2019 that it was “one of the best jobs of my career” because of the “behind the scenes” problems that people were unaware of.

Those comments have surfaced on social media in recent days after United suffered another defeat. Ferdinand was someone who also condemned the Portuguese manager for talking about the club, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replacing the then-Roma boss at the time.

Speaking of his Vibe with FIVE YouTube showFerdinand said: “I think so Jose Mourinho The quote has aged so, so well. And to me in the first place, I might apologize somewhat in terms of the way you viewed and condemned him.

“We can see things going wrong behind the scenes, but at the time we didn’t know the extent of it. Obviously it’s Jose Mourinho.

“He wanted to get rid of a number of players and he wanted to bring in certain players, and obviously certain salaries and contracts were shared with certain players and he thought, ‘Wow, wow, wow, what’s going on ?!'”

United are ready for a major overhaul in the summer when Erik ten Haag is appointed for the summer. The head of Ajax will replace Ralph Rangnick at the helm, and the latter will move to a consultative role with the management of Austria.
