Manchester United sack manager Jose Mourinho

Manchester United

In a statement, the club confirmed the news that they were parting ways with their controversial manager.

Former midfielder-turned-coach Michael Carrick is likely to step in as caretaker manager until the end of the season.

Mourinho claimed ahead of the game that Liverpool have had luck on their side this season, but while there was fortune in substitute Xherdan Shaqiri's two deflected strikes in the final 17 minutes, the visitors did not deserve anything more than a fifth league defeat of the season.

Three thoughts from Anfield on Liverpool's 3-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League.

The 55-year-old Portuguese insisted at Anfield that he had not lost the dressing room, as his team sat sixth in the Premier League table and 11 points off the Champions League places.

"For the first half hour we were outstanding, scored only one but I don't think anyone expects four or five against this United team".

A sense of disunity at United was encapsulated when Mourinho stripped Pogba of the vice-captaincy before a Carabao Cup defeat by Derby County and confronted him at training the following morning. Damningly, they have now conceded 29 league goals - one more than they shipped in the league in the whole of last season. Klopp laughs, before proceeding to ask him about Monday's Champions League second round draw. Arsenal is fifth, with 34 points, three fewer than Chelsea who also played his game this Sunday.

The final months of Mourinho's time in charge were marked by high-profile clashes with star players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, and apparent discontent over the club's failure to sign a defender in the summer.




According to British media reports, United will have to pay Mourinho £22.5 million (RM116.7 million) - as the club are still in the Champions League - to sever the ties.

The club said the new manager will understand the philosophy of the club, including its attacking traditions.

"It's always hard to play Manchester United", said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

"Liverpool just have the edge but there isn't a massive gulf in the quality of players Liverpool have compared to Manchester United".

"Obviously after their goal we got ourselves back into the game and I think for large parts we had time and space on the ball to play". Right out of nowhere they were back in the game once again, but Liverpool's players continued without thinking too much about the unfortunate situation in their box.

"He had a very good first season, an acceptable second season, but this season has been a disaster".

Had he arisen in time, though, he would have seen a match of great personal interest to him with Liverpool draw his former team Bayern Munich.
