BREAKING: Manchester United sack Jose Mourinho

Published

on

Manchester United have sacked manager Jose Mourinho after the club made their worst start to a season in almost 30 years , the Premier League club announced on Tuesday .

The 55 – year – old Portuguese ’ s last match in charge was the 3 -1 defeat by league leaders Liverpool on Sunday which left them 19 points behind their opponents .

It is United ’ s worst start in the league since 1990 and even his ambition of reaching the top four and a Champions League qualification spot is in danger with the club 11 points adrift of those places .

Despite the club having reached the Champions League knockout stages — they face an intimidating last- 16 tie with Paris Saint- Germain — a mix of the results, dressing – room discord and criticism of the board ’ s transfer policy proved potent factors in the decision to dismiss him .
“ Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect , ” a club statement said .

“ The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future .

“ A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season , while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new , full- time manager . ”
