Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw admits he had a "mixed relationship" with former manager Jose Mourinho.

Reflecting again on his difficulties with Mourinho, Shaw has hinted that his teammates agreed with him that the manager made various wrong decisions during their time working together.

"It was a mixed relationship," he tells SPORTbible. "A lot of the things that happened between us two, sometimes he went about it in the right way. I think a lot of people will agree with that at the club.

"Our relationship wasn't the best. It was probably quite easy to see that from the outside. But one thing Jose did do was make me mentally much stronger. I think mental strength is what I would describe that period under Jose Mourinho.

"I think I felt part of the team under Ole, whereas under Jose sometimes I didn't. Ole showed his belief and confidence in me. I always believed good times were coming.

"I stuck in and dug deep; went through a lot but come out better on the other side."
