Manchester United sack Mourinho after loss against Liverpool, abysmal start to season

Manchester United sack Mourinho after loss against Liverpool, abysmal start to season

The 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday left Manchester United with just two wins from their last eight games across all competitions.

Albion will not be facing Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at Old Trafford next month.

A caretaker manager will now take over until the end of the season, but United's search for a savior goes on.

The Portuguese lost his job at Old Trafford this morning following a miserable start to the season.

United's haul of 26 points after their first 17 Premier League games, is their worst tally in the top flight at this stage since 1990-91.

Mourinho's final match in charge was the loss at Anfield, after which he said his players were brittle and couldn't cope with the intensity and physicality of Liverpool - historically United's biggest rival.

However, the decline this season has simply been too much for a club of United's stature to handle.

They are 11 points adrift of the final Champions League qualifying spot now occupied by fourth-placed Chelsea.

Michael Carrick will take charge of the team for this weekend before a caretaker manager is appointed until the end of the season.

For the fourth time since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United are on the hunt for a new boss.

He won one League Cup and one Europa League in his first season.

"If you came down from the moon and didn't know anything about Manchester United, you'd think they're an average Premier League team". However, Manchester United are not expected to sell the French World Cup victor right now.
