Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has said his former club, Chelsea FC sacked him, despite the club insisting he left by mutual consent.
The club in a statement had said Mourinho left in 2015 by mutual consent.
But the Portuguese was adamant he was dismissed by owner Roman Abramovich.
“Mr Abramovich decided to sack me,” He told Sky Sports. “It was not mutual consent. But I left without a bad word about anything or anyone at the club.
“That was in my first period at Chelsea when I agreed it was time to change.
“I was keen to change, more than ready to go to other countries but this time it was not like that.
“It was a decision by the owner and I was informed of that decision. I accepted it in a polite way and we signed the papers. I did it in a calm, respectful way.”
“I waited for what I preferred, which was to stay in England, in the Premier League and I was lucky to have a big club like Manchester United,” he added.
“It took a couple of days [to get over it] and then it was finished and I started my life in a common way.
“I was still in London, I kept a house there, I was walking in the street, going to the gym, watching football…”
