Man United have fired José Mourinho after their Liverpool defeat on Sunday, thus ending his Man U career that started in May 2016. 

The Red Devils have been off to a poor start this season and are trailing 19 points behind the log leaders. 

Man United released the following statement:

“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.”
