Mourinho leaves United after poor start to season

Mourinho Explains Why Salah Struggled At Chelsea

The league-leading Reds are now 19 points ahead of United after just 17 matches but the 11-point gap to the Champions League spots was arguably even more concerning for Mourinho, who shouldered the responsibility for the defeat.

Manchester United has sacked its manager Jose Mourinho, following a dismal start to the 2018/19 season.

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.

It is understood that while first-team coach Michael Carrick took training on Tuesday, United plan to name a caretaker manager from outside the club by the end of the week to see out the season, with a permanent appointment to follow.

Though there were many, many failings during Mourinho's tenure at Old Trafford, his transfer record has come in for particular criticism in the aftermath of his sacking.

United sacked Mourinho this morning, two days after defeat to Liverpool.

In the case of Van Gaal, the news broke earlier that day in the press and United eventually released a rather complimentary statement from vice-chairmen Ed Woodward. That was in his first spell at Chelsea.

The wound went even deeper for Mourinho as City are managed by Pep Guardiola, who got the better of him when he was in charge at Barcelona and Mourinho was at Real Madrid.

But when Liverpool, in whose shadow United laboured for so long before Alex Ferguson finally "knocked them off their perch", brushed them aside on Sunday like the mediocre mid-table team they have become, it was the end of the line for the Portuguese coach.

March 13, 2018 - Sevilla knock United out of the Champions League at the round of 16 stage, winning 2-1 at Old Trafford after a goalless first leg in Spain.

Mourinho said the club's difficulties with injuries had been a long-term issue. As a result, Manchester United will be looking for its fourth manager since 2013.

Klopp said: "I have to say on our level, and it's not that I don't feel for him or whatever, I know it's hard to get as a person, but if a manager got the sack in the Championship or in League One or League Two then that's a bad moment because you don't know if they will get another job".
