Friends Blame Shaqiri For Manchester United Sacking Mourinho

Shaqiri

The Liverpool forward bagged a match-winning double in the Premier League contest which proved to be the last for a now former Red Devils manager

Xherdan Shaqiri has revealed how a number of his friends are blaming him for Manchester United parting with Jose Mourinho, with his double for Liverpool against the Red Devils leading to a managerial axe being wielded.

The Swizterland international stepped off the bench during a Premier League fixture at Anfield on December 16 to net a match-winning double.

With those efforts having helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to a first victory over their old adversaries in eight attempts, drastic action was taken by deflated opponents.

The contest proved to be the last for Mourinho as United manager , with his contract having been torn up and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appointed on an interim basis in his place .

On the role he played in a high-profile departure from Old Trafford, Shaqiri told The Guardian : "I had a lot of messages from my friends when it happened.

"There were a lot of good messages about the United game at first and then, when the news came out about Mourinho, I had messages saying: 'That's your fault!' But this is football sometimes.
"I don't think it was just because we won that game that United wanted to change their manager.
"There were other reasons but it means the game goes down in history. It will always be in my history too."
