Jose Mourinho has been sacked with immediate effect by the Manchester United Management over poor performance this season.
United have only won just two of their last eight matches in all competitions and sit 11 points off fourth-place in the Premier League.
Sitting deeply sixth in the Premier League table but have already lost five times in 17 matches, leaving them 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and 11 off fourth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League places.
That follows a summer transfer window in which Mourinho routinely complained at a lack of signings, with the Portuguese unable to persuade the club’s hierarchy to sign a new centre-back.
Manchester United is likely looking to have a long contract with either Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino.
