Many had predicted that Jose Mourinho will not last the 2018/2019 season at Old Trafford due to his fallout with club management and players. United management deemed it necessary to axe the former Chelsea gaffer after their fifth Premier League loss in the disappointing 3-1 defeat against Liverpool.
The 55-year-old gaffer has left Man United sixth on the league table with a whopping 19 points behind leaders, Liverpool.
Mourinho who was appointed by the Red Devils in the summer of 2016 has yet suffered another third season syndrome (an occurrence that happens every third season in the clubs he previously managed). Manchester United have now joined a host of clubs like Chelsea, Inter-Milan, and Real Madrid who have parted ways with the controversial manager in his third year.
Mourinho’s highest feat at the United came at his first season with the club, where he won the UEFA Europa League and Carabao Cup in the 2016/2017 season. He, however, went trophyless in his second season before his eventual sack at his third year.
