Jose Mourinho’s 11 signings - ranked from worst to best

Jose Mourinho reacts during the match between Manchester United and Liverpool on Sunday

He ended the 2017/18 season without a trophy, however, and has overseen Man United's worst ever Premier League points tally after 17 games this season following a 3-1 defeat at Liverpool.

The decision came on Tuesday as United laboured to their worst start for 28 years, playing tiresome, defensive football, with Mourinho cutting an ever-angrier figure after each setback, but Sunday's 3-1 defeat by Liverpool was one humiliation too far.

Manchester United says Jose Mourinho has left the Premier League club with immediate effect.

In recent months, he's been quick to remind fans and reporters of his history of success, but ultimately the failure and drama at Manchester United snowballed on him.

United said they would appoint a caretaker while conducting a thorough recruitment process for a new full-time manager.

United now sit sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind Liverpool who are top and 18 behind Manchester City. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

United's next fixture is against Cardiff in the Premier League on Saturday.

Well, as it turns out, it would cost a gargantuan amount to terminate his contract at Old Trafford.

Pogba sat on the bench for the full 90 minutes at Anfield on Sunday and has not started any of United's past three league games.

The last manager to be dismissed by the Red Devils was Louis van Gaal, who was sacked just a few days after lifting the FA Cup.

Relations between Mourinho and executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, were reportedly strained since the end of the previous season.

You can't question the mentality of players as often as Mourinho did and expect them to perform for you. It's the same for me and if the club thinks there is someone who can do it better, then they have to change today.

"I feel the same as when I arrived here to work as a coach, and further back as a player", Solari continued.

Mourinho had also been unhappy that United's board failed to back his wish to sign a central defender in the offseason.

The result left United 19 points behind their rivals and looking directionless.
