Manchester United veteran Ashley Young has denied the rumors that his team celebrated the dismissal of Jose Mourinho from his head coach post.

After the dismissal of Jose Mourinho and the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjær at his place, the Red Devils were miraculously transformed, having outclassed Cardiff 1:5.

The other day, there were rumors in the press that the news of Mourinho‘s resignation was met with jubilation in the locker room.

However, Young denies it and says that the departure of Jose made the players be upset.

“No celebration at all. Absolute lies,” the full-back said after United’s 5-1 win over Cardiff.

“Obviously it was disappointing for the manager to get sacked. In his two-and-a-half years, he won trophies.

Like I said. we have to move on from that. Ole (Gunnar Solksjaer) has come in and we were preparing in the right way for a game even though it’s been a crazy week, but as professional players we have to get on with the job in hand and that is what we did today,” Young told reporters.
