Manchester United has announced via their twitter page that Jose Mourinho, 55, has been sacked their club’s manager after two and a half years in charge.
Recall that Mourinho won the FA Cup and the Europa League at Old Trafford.
However, United are sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool, who beat them 3-1 on Sunday.
Reports says the players and staff are not happy after a disappointing and unsettling period during which young players were not developed.
“A caretaker-manager will be appointed until the end of the season while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager,” United said in a statement.
“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future,”
