Mourinho BLAMES Ferdinand, Scholes For Sack

Jose Mourinho believes Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes conspired against him to get him the sack at Manchester United. The Portuguese’s two-and-a-half years at Old Trafford came to an end on Monday after he was sacked by the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. Mourinho was ‘surprised’ by the club’s decision and felt the board should have given him more time given his view that they failed to back him in the transfer market. The 55-year-old felt his first two seasons at the club were a success but blamed ‘outside negativity’ from pundits like Ferdinand and Scholes for creating a bad atmosphere at Old Trafford.

Scholes in particular has been scathing of Mourinho in recent months and said the coach was ’embarrassing’ the club. Mourinho refused to criticise former players in press conferences but was hugely resentful towards the likes of Scholes during his final months at Old Trafford. Mourinho felt his side of the story was rarely showcased and believes United’s problems stem from the boardroom.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has since been placed in charge at Old Trafford and will lead the side for the first time against former club Cardiff City on Saturday.

Jay-Z Is Now America’s Richest Musician

The “greatest trick in music that people ever pulled off,” Jay-Z said to Forbes in 2010, was convincing young aspiring musicians that “you can’t be an artist and make money.” The rapper followed up on his words this week by rising to become the fifth-richest figure on the magazine’s annual ranking of celebrity wealth in America — and the wealthiest musician on the list.

Jay trails behind George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan with his net worth of $900 million  a number that Forbes says comes from an examination of published earnings, private stakes, publicly traded assets as well as lifetime earnings estimates  but he is the figure who saw the biggest dollar gains.

 Jay’s net worth has risen $90 million in the last year because of his stakes in various companies including entertainment giant Roc Nation, streaming service Tidal and liquor companies Armand de Brignac and D’Ussé. He’s now ahead of fellow rapper Diddy, who previously held the top music spot on the list.
