Why Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has deleted his Instagram account

Manchester United's chiefs have rejected a transfer request from manager, Jose Mourinho, following their 1-0 FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea on Saturday at Wembley.

The success of Chelsea and United's seasons depended on them winning the FA Cup, so for Mourinho to end the campaign empty-handed is a big blow.

The Blues are in for what could be a rough summer, with Antonio Conte's future also up in the air. The Belgian, whose penalty won Chelsea the FA Cup this week, is believed to be Madrid's top target, and the player himself may be inclined towards an exit.

"I have chose to respect my contract", Conte said after the match.

"We'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year", said 26-year-old Belgium global Courtois, who is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer.

Conte is expected to leave Chelsea in the coming days amid long-standing tensions with the club hierarchy over transfer policy, coupled with a spectacular decline in results since the turn of the year and a management style that has begun to wear on some of his players.

After lifting the Premier League trophy last season, Chelsea finished 30 points behind newly crowned champion Manchester City to finish fifth last week and out of the Champions League places.

"You see the fans celebrating with the trophy. They deserve this win, to win an important trophy in a season which was very hard for many reasons", Conte may be uncertain of his immediate future but there is no denying that he pulled one over his arch nemesis in England.

"I think all of the players and the club want one thing and that's to win the title".

"They scored one more goal than us and they got the cup and so I've got to do what my job asks me to do".

"I'm sure, if I was a guessing man, they obviously will have spoken, between the club and the manager". No matter what happens, the Italian can be proud of lifting the FA Cup this season, and the Premier League last season.

He's failed to look anything like the player they signed, and he's taken a lot of stick from Chelsea fans too.

"In every press conference I always say I'm committed to this club, to respect my contract".

"I am quite curious because I can imagine if my team played like Chelsea did I can imagine what everyone would be saying".

"When a player tells you he is not ready to play, not ready to start, then the question is how many minutes you think you can?"
