Manchester United have this morning sacked manager Jose Mourinho, ending the Portuguese boss’ two-year spell at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have finally made the decision to end their relationship with manager Jose Mourinho after a very disappointing start to the season.
United currently sit in sixth place and with very little hope of even reaching the top five between now and the end of the season.
Mourinho’s position as manager has been much debated this season with the poor performances on the pitch also being topped up by the Portuguese’s poor relationships with key players in the squad.
However, many thought United wouldn’t take the decision due to the £24 million cost involved in cancelling Mourinho’s contract. But even that scary amount of money wasn’t enough to save Jose, who now returns to unemployment.
So, was it a £24 million gamble worth taking? Or have Manchester United acted prematurely to please their highly-paid stars?
