An official statement released by Manchester United this morning has revealed that “Jose Mourinho has left his position at the club as the Manchester United manager with immediate effect”.
The 55-year old Portuguese manager took over the managerial role at Manchester United two and a half years ago in the 2016/2017 season. Jose Mourinho has won the UEFA Europa League title as well as the League cup in his first season in charge of Manchester United, lost in the FA Cup finals and finished as runner-up to Premier League champions and city rival, Manchester City last season.
Manchester United revealed the news in a short press release coming less than two days after United lost 3 – 1 to their English football arch-rival Liverpool in a disgraceful performance at the Anfield stadium on Sunday.
Manchester United currently sits in the sixth position on the English Premier League table and are 11-points off the Champions League qualification spot and behind the fourth-placed team Chelsea, and 19-points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.
The Official Manchester United press statement reads:
Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect. 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.
It is surely going to be a very busy few months ahead for Manchester United as they navigate their way into the busy fixtures in December, hunt for a new caretaker coach. The new caretaker coach will face the daunting task of getting Manchester United past PSG at the Champions League round of 16 knockout stages, and climbing the premier league table and improving the form and quality of football.
Micheal Carrick is believed to be appointed as the interim manager until a new caretaker coach is appointed within the next 48 hours.
