Manchester United Sacks Jose Mourinho Following Liverpool Defeat by thelegend1(m): 11:01am On Dec 18, 2018
Manchester United have sacked José Mourinho following Sunday’s defeat at Liverpool, ending a tenure that began in May 2016.

A poor start to the Premier League season has seen United slip 19 points behind the leaders, Liverpool, and fall off the pace in the hunt for a top-four place. They have won only once in six league matches, drawing during that sequence with struggling Southampton and Crystal Palace.

Even a José Mourinho gripped by defensive dogma was better than this

Relations between the manager and the executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, also seemed strained after the club did not sign a central defender this summer. The club concluded that of the players in that position targeted by Mourinho whom they could potentially land, none was an upgrade on the existing squad.

A sense of disunity at United was encapsulated when Mourinho stripped Pogba of the vice-captaincy before a Carabao Cup defeat by Derby County and confronted him at training the following morning. The manager has criticised his players’ “mental approach”, attitude and quality.

Mourinho has seemed less than happy since the buildup to the season, when he described preparations as “very bad” because many of his senior players were resting after the World Cup.

The manager demanded “respect, respect, respect” for his three Premier League titles following United’s 3-0 home defeat by Tottenham in late August but will not get a chance to add a fourth at Old Trafford.

Good bye special one. Lolx. Me sha thinks man utd should hire someone that knows Every sh*t about the club's legacy , like Giggs or Carrick . Mk dem go follow Zidane or Conte , e fit no work again . Just wait and see how Carrick performs , if he does well , give him a year contract , buy a WC defender and midfielder , sell some Deadwoods , loan some . And see what he does with the team he has .

No no no.
This is the worst decision man u could have made!
Mourhino is not the problem!
The players are!!! When you have strikers like lukaku who can barely pass the ball properly what do you expect? Pobga is good yes but he is overrated by far!! Man U needs a new make over. They have to use the transfer window to their advantage!
Chelsea did the same thing and they are still where they are!!

Goodnews but this doesn't take away the fact that the likes of Jones, Smalling, Lukaku should not be wearing the Red Devil's Jersey.

Thank God sekem sekem sekem. Liverpool did a perfect job again, last time he was sacked after liverpool won chelsea 3-1. Liverpool beat man u 3-1 and he was sacked again. Liverpool is mourinho nemesis.

Fair enough everything was getting too messy on and off pitch. Mourinho is a good coach bt needs to stop letting his controversial nature affect his players psyche negatively.

Loosing is not the issue bt how the controversies are affecting the players game generally.
