Manchester United sack Jose Mourinho
London, Dec 18, 2018 (AltAfrica)-Jose Mourinho has left his job as Manchester United manager after two-and-a-half years in charge.
The Portuguese, 55, won the League Cup and the Europa League at Old Trafford.
But United are sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool, who beat them 3-1 on Sunday.
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.
A club statement said: “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.”
