Jose Mourinho says "nice guy" football managers can end up becoming a "puppet" at their club.

The former Manchester United manager was sacked in December and replaced by interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before the Norwegian's appointment was made permanent three months later.

"I don't want to be the nice guy," Mourinho told L'Equipe.

"Because the nice guy, after three months, is a puppet and that doesn't end well."

He added: "When you are almost alone, in that you don't have the support of the club close to you, while certain players go somewhat against the coach, who is the nice guy?"

Former United striker Solskjaer, 46, enjoyed 10 wins in his first 11 games in charge at Old Trafford, but that form dipped dramatically after he took on the role long-term in March.

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

Mourinho, who guided United to second in the league in 2017-18 season, insists that was his "greatest achievement" at the club and that now "people understand".

In his interview with the French newspaper, he said: "When I say that the second season was fantastic, I say it because the potential and the objectives were met.

"I really squeezed, like an orange, to achieve them."

The 56-year-old Portuguese coach also says the "organisation and ambition" at Old Trafford are part of the club's problems, and that the difficulties did not lie solely with players such as France midfielder Paul Pogba.

Former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Mourinho and the 26-year-old World Cup winner were regularly reported as having a strained relationship, which included a training ground spat at the start of this season.

"The problems are there: you can say that these are the players, the organisation, the ambition," Mourinho said.

"I only say that I cannot say 'yes' when you ask if Paul was the only one responsible."

Jose Josegrin Who is he targeting now again grin

I get what he's saying though. But some of the best leaders are the ones who inspire love and devotion from their followers. And you can't do this if you treat them bad.

So yes you can be nice to your subordinates and still be firm when you need to be and still have their total respect and commitment because you've shown them you genuinely care. You can be an authoritarian ass to them though and they'll answer YES SIR to everything you say in your presence but be plotting secretly how to destroy you. Don't undermine the power or intelligence of your subordinates.

Frankly speaking. You have to man up and step on toes to be reckoned with. If the snake does not behave like of snakes people take it for a rope. This is not about football management alone. It is universally applicable.

nothing wrong with being the nice guy, however you have to be selectively nice and know when to be brutal.

I refuse to be a nice guy. If you hurt me be rest assured that I will hurt you 40 times. Being nice is a weakness.

Mou was the best coach we had after Fergie. As a Man Utd fan, next season would avoid betting for Man UTd to win.

I just like this man ideology and philosophy. I use his football philosophies in my daily living. I deal with issues pragmatically based on his approach to football matches.
