Jose Mourinho claims Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are ‘laughing at the mess’ at Manchester United and Chelsea ahead of next season.

Chelsea took the surprise decision to end Mauricio Pochettino’s stint at manager after an encouraging end to the Premier League campaign and are now set to appoint Enzo Maresca as his successor.

United, meanwhile, still have Erik ten Hag in place as manager but are conducting an end-of-season review which will ultimately determine the Dutchman’s fate and have already drawn up a shortlist of potential replacements, including Pochettino, Thomas Tuchel and Kieran McKenna, who has opted to remain at Ipswich Town.

Mourinho, meanwhile, has made his return to management after being sacked by Roma in January and will begin work with Fenerbahce.

The 61-year-old was working as a pundit for TNT Sports for the Champions League final on Saturday evening and when asked about his former clubs, he made his feelings clear.

Asked about Chelsea’s situation after deciding to part ways with Pochettino, Mourinho replied: ‘I have no idea.

‘Tottenham I have an idea, this is Tottenham, always fighting to be fourth, which would be amazing between fourth, fifth, sixth, next season the Europa League, of course they can win it.

‘They look [to have] stability, they are investing more, amazing club, amazing facilities, such a beautiful stadium, you can feel it.

‘Chelsea… I really don’t know.’

Asked about Manchester United, Mourinho said: ‘A little improvement but more of the same.

‘I think in this moment Pep [Guardiola] laughs at the mess at other clubs.’
