Manchester United lose patience and sack Mourinho

Mourinho Explains Why Salah Struggled At Chelsea

The 55-year-old has spent two-and-a-half years in charge but lacklustre performances over the course of the season and a recent 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool look to have sealed his fate.

United have announced that Jose Mourinho will be leaving the club.

While his success in the commercial market has taken the club to new heights on the balance sheet, the football side of the business has been a train wreck by Manchester United's standards under his watch.

United, who were drawn against Paris St Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League on Monday, have said they will appoint a caretaker manager within the next 48 hours while they presumably try to earn time to prize a big-name manager away from his current role.

United are sixth in the table with 26 points from 17 matches, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool.

Sunday's 3-1 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield was the final straw. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

Should he survive unscathed in the next few weeks, it looks like the only realistic chance he has of leading United into the 2019/20 Champions League is winning the competition this time around.

So why the change in policy from the Old Trafford boardroom then?

The United team reportedly also stayed at the hotel on some nights before home games, and team meetings were held there.

Rio Ferdinand has given his take on Manchester United firing Jose Mourinho.

After David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, a third manager sacked in four years suggests there is far more to be fixed behind the scenes at the world's richest club than a new name on the manager's door. However, you get the feeling that anyone other than Mourinho would do at the moment.

"Of course the style, how they play, it's for me too", he said.

Mourinho lasted 2 1/2 years at United and won two titles, the English League Cup and the Europa League in his first season. What is the point of bringing in the most ideal manager to lead United forward only to then hamstring him with misguided direction from the boardroom which has already proven to only hamper rather than help the club's fortunes?

"We've been doing polls where 80 percent of fans wanted him to leave", said Mitten.

However, despite his protestations to the contrary the United board gave Mourinho plenty of money to compete.
