Jose Mourinho's Time At The Lowry Hotel Could Have Cost Up To £537k
Jose Mourinho's time as Manchester United came to an end on Tuesday morning but it's not just Old Trafford that the now former manager will be leaving but his very expensive room at the Lowry Hotel.
It was a shock when Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United two days after the 3-1 loss to Liverpool but it wasn't exactly a surprise that it happened, after all it was always a matter of time.
Throughout Mourinho's time as a manager he has been known for things going well for a couple of years before falling to pieces quickly, usually in the third season.
At Chelsea, twice, and Real Madrid life had followed the pattern and when the former Porto boss joined Manchester United many questioned whether he could reverse his previous pattern.
Last season United finished second to Manchester City, by a long way, but they've been even further off the pace this season, and find themselves in in sixth.
For all Mourinho's claims that he was going to stay at United longer than previous clubs one thing never seemed to add up, the fact that he never bought or even rented a property in Manchester. Instead decided to stay in the luxury Lowry Hotel, in the centre of the city.
According to the Daily Mail, Mourinho was there for 895 days and based on the fact he stayed in one of their Riverside Suites he could have built a bill up to £537,000 for the room at £600 a night.
Mourinho was briefly joined at the Lowry by Zlatan Ibrahimovic when the Swede joined United from PSG but he then moved out to the Radisson Blu elsewhere in the city centre.
United do use the Lowry as their meeting point for games and often rumours about team news comes from which players turn up at the hotel and which are missing.
United's next boss will only be a caretaker till the end of the season, so may also end up at the Lowry, but after that the club will hope the next manager sticks around long enough to need a house.
Mourinho will have to get used to proper sized bottles of shower gel and cans of coke as well as having plug sockets by the bed.
