Manchester United appeared to take aim at both Gary Neville and Paul Scholes for failing to succeed in management having criticised him as pundits.
Neville struggled before being dismissed as Valencia boss and Scholes only survived a month before walking from his Oldham post.
Both men were vocal critics of the Portuguese during his tenure at United and Mourinho hit back.
In an interview with RT Sport, he said : ‘But the experience to be there, we have even in England, former top players, amazing in front of the screen.
‘They go to football clubs, and after two months, goodbye, let’s go home because this is not right for us.
‘So there are things you have it, or you don’t have it.’
Clearly, Mourinho has been stung by the negative critiques of his work from the likes of Neville and Scholes.
The 56-year-old is currently on the hunt for his next job and wants assurances from any future owners that he will be given time to implement his philosophy.
