On Tuesday morning, a statement was released which read: “Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect and would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
For now, a new club caretaker manager will be appointed to lead the club until the end of the current season. The club will be conducting a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.
The Portuguese, 55, guided United to League Cup and Europa League titles have just left the club. After they were beaten 3-1 by the premier league leaders on Sunday. Currently, the club is in the sixth position with 19 points behind the leading club Liverpool.
“Until the end of the season, a caretaker-manager will in charge of the club, while the club will go on thorough recruitment for a new full-time manager”.
We were made to understand that the caretaker manager to replace Mourinho who took charge after Louis van Gaal in May 2016, will not be either the assistant coach Michael Carrick nor the academy boss Nicky Butt. The manager replacement will not come from the club.
Mourinho’s relationship with key members of his playing squad is some worth disintegrated this season, with a public training-ground face-off with Paul Pogba and club captain Antonio Valencia being forced to apologize for ‘liking’ an Instagram post calling for Mourinho to be sacked.
The former Porto, Chelsea, Inter and Real Madrid manager had hoped to stay at Manchester United football club for 15 years, but he has lasted little more than two.
