Manchester United has announced that Jose Mourinho has left the club, days after the team’s loss to Liverpool.
The Red Devils are currently 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and are sixth on the log.
Manchester United released a statement on Tuesday morning that said: “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.”
Mourinho, who joined United in May 2016 has had a fractious relationship with some of his players including Paul Pogba, that was stripped of vice-captaincy.
Michael Carrick will be appointed as the temporary manager in place of the Portuguese.
