Fresh from his sacking as Manchester United boss on Tuesday, Jose Mourinho held a farewell lunch at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, where he’d been staying during his two years at the club.

Relations with players and fans of the Red Devils may have soured during this season’s pitfalls, but the bond between the 55-year-old and the staff at the plush hotel he frequented ended very sweetly, according to eyewitnesses.

The Portuguese manager had been living at the Lowry Hotel since the summer of 2016, and during his lengthy stay he’d become a familiar face to staff at the hotel.

But on Tuesday he bid them farewell for the final time.

After being informed of his sacking at Carrington, Mourinho appeared in “good spirits”, according to one unnamed resident at the hotel.

“He made a point of seeking some people out and it looked like he was in good spirits.

Mourinho led United to League Cup and a Europa League titles, but his team disappointed this year.
