Events of GTA V
Manuel, ashamed of being wrongly arrested, orders Trevor Philips (who briefly helped Joe and Josef) to find and kill the duo, which Trevor does, albeit unwillingly, as Manuel refuses to pay him.
Manuel is shown to be a proud man, not dropping his serious attitude even when being held at a gunpoint by Trevor, scolding him until he's motivated to kill the two, and that he will not pay him anything for the deed before walking away to his truck and driving away.

- Along with the GTA Online Protagonist, Manuel is one of the very few people in GTA V, who doesn't show fear when threatened by Trevor.
