LONDON, United Kingdom
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been sacked.
Sources say that his assistant Michael Carrick will be appointed temporary manager to the end of the season.
The 55 year old Portuguese’s future has been the subject of intense scrutiny this season – and the club’s worst start to a season in 28 years was confirmed with defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.
Manchester United announced on Tuesday that “manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect”.
