Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has claimed that Jose Mourinho did not deserve to be compensated in full because of his behaviour at Manchester United.

The Portuguese boss has led United to the worst season start in their Premier League history before being sacked last month immediately after a 3-1 loss to Liverpool.

The former Chelsea boss has been paid the full £15m by the Red Devils and is now free to get another job elsewhere.

However, Cascarino, who has questioned Mourinho’s commitment to the club, the Portuguese has wrongly acted towards the end of his reign.

“It doesn’t sit well with me,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“First of all you can put him on gardening leave, which means he keeps getting paid and can’t take another job, but there is a part of me that thinks, ‘would you ever consider a manager really wanting to be sacked?’”

“I’ve watched United play in recent weeks and we’re all told the big smile on their faces is the massive reason why United had this up change in performances and have been superb.”

“How negligent was Mourinho? And getting paid off completely. Jose, really did you give your all to that football club?”

“If a player had acted the way you did, you would have questioned his attitude towards being a player for Man United.”

Cascarino also suggests that managers should have similar contracts to players so they cannot just walk out on a club.

He added: “In the last six months I saw a manager completely in conflict with everybody at the football club. Most of them players.”

“Some of his statements were embarrassing to the football club and could he hold his head up high about the job he did in the last year or so at Old Trafford? I would say no.”

“When a guy gets £15million and the way he has acted in front of the camera towards his football club and then gets paid the full amount.”

“I don’t get why the club have to pay him up in full. Contracts for managers should be similar to players.”

“Managers can walk out on clubs, players can’t, they have to agree a fee.”

The Red Devils have won five consecutive games since Mourinho was sacked and are set to take on Tottenham on Sunday evening.
