Updates: Man Utd Sacked Jose Mourinho And Appoint Michael Carrick as caretaker manager


Manchester United’s management has appointed Michael Carrick as head of its caretaker coaching team, following the exit of Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho’s exit was announced on Tuesday morning in a statement issued by the Club, thanking him for the service he put in while in charge of the club as the manager.

According to reports, Michael Carrick will acting interim Manchester United manager until an external interim manager is appointed, and that  appointment will be made within in the next 48 hours.
Carrick will presumably take training until United bring in a more long-term caretaker manager before they play Cardiff this weekend.
Michael Carrick is an English former professional footballer. He is one of the most decorated English players of all time and is best known for his 12 year tenure as a Manchester United player, whom he also captained.

José Mourinho has been sacked as Manchester United manager following Sunday’s defeat at Liverpool.
Mourinho’s exit put an end to a tenure that began in May 2016.
The club announced its management’s decision in a statement issued on Tuesday morning,.
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,” the club said.
United finally lost patience with a head coach who was not adhering to the club’s core attacking values and who had overseen their worst start to a campaign for 28 years.
Investigations reveal that Mourinho was also relieved of his duties due to a transfer spend of around £400m on 11 players that, it is understood, the club insist were all the Portuguese’s choice.
In addition to the disquiet regarding the side’s stultifying style, there was further disappointment at Mourinho’s development and improvement of United’s younger players. The club also took into account the growing unhappiness from fans at the direction of the club under Mouinho.

In two full seasons at Old Trafford, Mourinho won the Europa League and League Cup (2016-17) before finishing second in the Premier League last season and reaching the FA Cup final. In that period since replacing Louis van Gaal, United’s spending stands at £364.3m on eight buys.

United will now appoint a caretaker until the end of the season but this will not be Michael Carrick, Nicky Butt, or anyone from within the club. Instead, following a thorough and extensive process will have Mourinho’s permanent successor in place for next season.
