Jose Mourinho has branded Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a "puppet" in a thinly-veiled swipe at his successor.

The former Manchester United boss insists time has proved his methods at Old Trafford were not the issue.

Although Solskjaer won 10 of his first 11 games, United’s form has nosedived after he was appointed full-time.



"I don't want to be the nice guy, because the nice guy, after three months, is a puppet and that doesn't end well."

The Old Trafford giants won just two of their last nine league games and finished in sixth, outside the Champions League positions.

"When I say that the second season was fantastic, I say it because the potential and the objectives were met.

Mourinho continues to rate last season's second place highly - when United finished 19 points behind Manchester City - and feels recent events have cast it in a greater light.
