Jose Mourinho sacked by Manchester United
Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United.

Michael Carrick to take training until new temporary boss from outside the club is appointed until the end of the season; announcement expected within next 48 hours.


Main-Bet.com News understands Mourinho was sacked at around 9am on Tuesday in a face-to-face meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at United's Carrington training base.

Woodward was keen to speak to Mourinho in person to tell him of the board's decision. The Portuguese then departed Carrington at around 12.20pm on Tuesday.

The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.


The Portuguese, 55, took over in May 2016 and led United to League Cup and Europa League titles, but they are 19 points behind league leaders Liverpool.

The club have made a change after no progress with results or style despite spending nearly ?400m on 11 players.


They also say the new manager will understand the philosophy of the club, including their attacking traditions.

Mourinho is understood to have wanted his own structure, but the new manager will be appointed with a head of football above him reporting to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

A United statement said: "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.
