The Portuguese tactician, who is still without a job since being sacked by United in December 2018, was once again working as a pundit during the North West Derby on Sunday, and he seemingly could not resist having a slight dig at Solskjaer, who is under massive pressure to get results following the club's worst start to a Premier League campaign in 30 years, ahead of the match.

"They did some good PR in the week to make it absolutely clear or create positive atmosphere for the game. I'm going to try to get a job like Ole has, and speak all the time about the future," Mourinho said on Sky Sports.

"I think it's a great situation, three year contract – the future, the young players. I think it's a great job to do in such a giant club."

The Norwegian entered the match under a lot of pressure after securing just two wins in United's first eight league games of the 2019/20 campaign. However, the 1-1 draw against Liverpool, who dropped points for the first time this season, helped to silence his critics, at least for a few days anyway.

The United coach also reportedly still has the backing of United vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

"Winning; playing attacking football with players that have an 'x-factor'; and giving youth a chance," Woodward said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"Added to that, we want players to come in who respect their teammates, the club, the history. They must understand that they are creating a legacy by coming to Manchester United. Nobody is bigger than the club.

"Whatever manager we have has to buy into that philosophy, and Ole is a walking, talking version of that. Let's let this play out with Ole in terms of the culture reboot."
