Jose Mourinho Finally Sacked By Man United

SHARE

Due to a poor start to the season, Manchester United on Tuesday fired Manager Jose Mourinho . Michael Carrick, who joined the team’s coaching staff, after retiring as a Man U player, following the 2017-18 season, will serve as caretaker manager until an interim coach can be found from outside the club’s ranks, ahead of Saturday’s match at Cardiff City.

A very poor start to the season has Manchester United sitting in sixth place in the league table, with just 7 wins in 17 Premier league games. With 11 points out of fourth place and a 3:1 loss to Liverpool in their last match away on Sunday, has left Man u in serious doubt of making top 4 or qualifying for Champions league next season.

One of five managers to have won league titles in four countries, Mourinho joined Manchester United in 2016 after successful runs at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. The arrogant Portuguese legend, who had a habit of holding up three fingers in front of reporters and fans to remind them of his three Premier League championships, led Manchester United to League Cup and UEFA Europea League titles in his first season but came up empty in his second, and this year’s slow start has come about despite his spending of more than $500 million on 11 players in the transfer market.

One of those players is French midfielder Paul Pogba, who rejoined Manchester United right before Mourinho’s first season with the club after it paid Juventus a then-record $113 million transfer fee. Pogba remained on the bench during Sunday’s loss to Liverpool, and after a 1-1 draw with Wolves earlier this season he told reporters he would like to see Manchester United “attack, attack, attack” in its games at home. Mourinho then stripped Pogba of his second captaincy.

After the news broke Tuesday, Pogba posted a picture of himself with a knowing look on social media and wrote “caption this” below it before deleting it, according to the BBC .

“In addition to the disquiet regarding the side’s stultifying style, there was further disappointment at Mourinho’s development and improvement of United’s younger players,” the Guardian reports . “The club also took into account the growing unhappiness from fans at the direction of the club under Mourinho.”

Goodbye the Special One!
