Jose Mourinho has admitted that he deserved to be sacked as Manchester United manager, but insists he is not enjoying watching them struggle under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United were beaten 2-0 at West Ham on Sunday, a result which saw them drop down to eighth in the Premier League table.
The club were in sixth when Mourinho was sacked midway through last season.
Also, under Solskjaer this season, United have scored more than one goal in a game just once, on the opening day against Chelsea.
“I’m not the right person to answer it,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports when asked about United’s problems.
“They are far behind. It’s difficult for me to answer. I was there for two seasons where I could feel lots of positive things and I could feel the direction to go in, then obviously the third season was not good enough.
“I was sacked, I probably deserved to be sacked because I was responsible as the manager, but the sad reality is that they are worse than before.
“And for me that is a sad thing. Maybe people think I’m enjoying the situation but I’m not enjoying it at all.”
