Jose Mourinho has granted his first interview following his sack by Manchester United.

Daily Star report claim that Sky Sports reporter Gary Cotterill caught up with the Portuguese tactician for brief chat outside his house in London.

Cotterill hailed Mourinho: “Thank you for coming out for a walk!”

And the football tactician responded: “Can I come for a walk or not? You don’t have to thank me.”

The reporter then wanted to know if Mourinho had anything to say after he was sacked, with Mourinho replying: “No. You know me. Let me walk. Let me walk.

“I have nothing to say. You know me. If you want to walk with me, lets go to Battersea! No problem for me.”

Additional effort by Cotterill to get Mourinho speak on his future proved abortive.

“I have nothing, bye,” Mourinho submitted.

Already club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named as interim manager until the end of the season.

And will be assisted by the trio of Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.

Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role,” Solskjaer noted.

“I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club.”

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously had reported that Manchester United have sacked Jose Mourinho barely three-years in charge at the Theatre of Dreams.

United have recorded poor strings of results in all through their campaign including their 3-1 bashing at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.

Mourinho's assistant and former captain, Micheal Carrick is reportedly going to be in charge until a new manager is appointed.
