Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Jose Mourinho has dismissed suffering any setback following his sack by Man United last December.

The Portuguese manager was sent packing by Old Trafford chiefs after falling 19 points adrift of then-league leaders Liverpool, despite splashing out about £400m on signing 11 players during his three-year stay at the club.

According to the Daily Mail citing Eleven Sports, Mourinho waved off submission that United exit had lasting impact on him, stressing he didn't need time to recover after being sacked - although he admitted he is trying to 'reformulate' himself as he awaits new job.
