What next for Jose Mourinho?

After enduring their worst start to a season in 28 years Manchester United have sacked Jose Mourinho and the Premier League giants have dropped a massive hint over the future managerial appointment.

Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson after winning the Premier League title in the 2012/13 season, it marked the end of an iconic 26-year tenure as manager.

Since then David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho have all been sacked after failing to win the league or maintain the philosophy the Scot instilled into the giants of English football.

To put the current disarray into perspective, Moyes initial six-year deal he signed still has five months left running…

After 17 games, United do not have a positive goal difference.

They have already conceded 29 goals in the league – one more than they conceded in 38 games last season.

They were knocked out of the League Cup by Derby County and are massive outsiders to beat PSG in the Champions League.

While there’s been extensive media interest in the Paul Pogba debacle, the poisoned relationship with the Frenchmen proved to be nothing more than the tip of the iceberg for what appears to be a sinking ship

The Red Devils hierarchy seemingly lost patience with the former Chelsea boss after the inept performance against their fierce rivals Liverpool over the weekend which marked their worst start in 28 years.

A transfer spend of around £400m on 11 players that, it is understood, the club insist were all the Portuguese’s choice – along with the lack of development in youth and rigid playing style were all major factors to his exit.

According to English publication, The Guardian, the compensation due to Mourinho will be no more than £15m.

The club announced that Michael Carrick will take charge of training on Tuesday before an interim boss is appointed before the weekend.

That caretaker role will last until the end of the season but this will not be Carrick, Nicky Butt or anyone from within the club and former Paris Saint-Germain and France coach Laurent Blanc has been mooted as the favourite.
