Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect.
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.
The statement talks about an interim manager till the end of the season which is an odd thing to say since there is still more than half of the season left in the current season. Thus, its tough to predict if managers like Michael Carrick will be considered or permanent super-managers like Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte will be approached.
The big news, which shouldn't come as a shock, is that Jose Mourinho yet again perishes in his third season at a club. It will be interesting to understand the role that marquee players like Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez had in making this sacking happen quicker than expected.
