Report says that Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United. The Club announced on Tuesday that “manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect”.
In a statement officially released to the football world, appreciated the now former manager and also stated that there would be a temporary replacement;
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.
Meanwhile, Michael Carrick is the interim manager until a new temporary boss is appointed within the next 48 hours.
Apparently, Mourinho’s future has been the subject of intense scrutiny this season – and the club’s worst start to a season in 28 years was confirmed with defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.
The 55-year-old Portuguese only signed a new two-year contract until earlier this year but his troubled season began when he publicly criticised the United board for not backing him in the summer transfer market.
He had wanted at least one new centre-back but he did not get one, with the club signing £50m midfielder Fred, Porto youngster Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant as a backup goalkeeper.
