His final match in charge was Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool. The statement read: “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.” Mourinho leaves Old Trafford two-and-a-half years after joining the club, having succeeded Louis van Gaal as the third permanent manager since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement. He guided United to EFL Cup and Europa League success in his debut season, but only managed to secure a sixth-place finish in the Premier League. Last term was far better in terms of league performance – United were only beaten to the title by a dominant Manchester City – but the Red Devils ended 2017/18 without any silverware to speak of.
