Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United, This was reported by Man U that said “Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect. The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.”
Michael Carrick is set to look after the affairs of the club before they appoint an external manager in the next 24 to 48 hours that will take charge as a caretaker all through the season.
This comes as a no surprise to Man U fans as the performance of the club has spiraled down from bad to worse. This has to do with the club’s worst Premier League start ever recorded.
Mourinho’s relationship with key members of his playing squad appeared to have disintegrated this season, with a public training-ground face-off with Paul Pogba and club captain Antonio Valencia being forced to apologise for ‘liking’ an Instagram post calling for Mourinho to be sacked.
The replacements for Mourinho are plenty with Vicki Hodges of Telegraph UK putting Zinedine Zidane at the fore-front in the list while former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and ex-Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger are also in the running.
