Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho moaned about a change that he made at Manchester United when returning to Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.
The Portuguese was sacked by the Red Devils in December 2018 and be was eventually replaced by Solskjaer.
He had spent two-and-a-half years at the club by that point, but was unable to build on the success he enjoyed during a productive debut season which delivered three trophies.
Mourinho had done all he could to rekindle former glories for Manchester United, with every avenue explored in order to give the club a competitive edge.
One of the decisions he made in that process came back to haunt him 12 months after his exit.
On December 4, 2019, Spurs took a trip to Old Trafford with Jose Mourinho calling the shots after being signed to take over from Mauricio Pochettino.

They would suffer a 2-1 defeat, with current United head coach Solskjaer claiming that his predecessor was not happy with the facilities at Old Trafford.
The Norwegian told United We Stand of a meeting with Jose Mourinho: “We had a chat before the game.
“I’d not really met him before, only briefly when he was at Chelsea and they played Cardiff. We had a nice chat. He was complaining about the away dressing room, the one that he’d changed!
“There was a positive atmosphere between us – it was good to have him back.”
Questions have been asked of Solskjaer’s suitability to the demanding position, but he has always maintained that he is the right man for the job and hopes United now share that opinion.
The 47-year-old added: “I’m a Red through and through. United matters to me.
“I’m honest, I’m loyal. I’m a club man. I plan for the long term and I want the best for the club long term. I’d like to think they thought I had the personality to manage Manchester United.”
