Manchester United sack coach Jose Mourihno

After a 3-1 loss to Liverpool, Manchester United fired manager Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old Swiss global midfielder came off the bench to take his tally to five goals in 13 league appearances, meaning he is already just three shy of his best previous total in the Premier League for Stoke last season.

While his success in the commercial market has taken the club to new heights on the balance sheet, the football side of the business has been a train wreck by Manchester United's standards under his watch.

United plan to hire a caretaker manager until the end of the season, before appointing a permanent successor.

United now sit sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind English Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Mourinho took United to second in the league last season but regressed this year and are back in sixth position, the same place the club finished in Louis van Gaal's final year. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

'To dance on the grave of the manager who has just been sacked is out of order.

The Reds manager also believes Mourinho's reputation should not be soured by his recent troubles in Manchester, particularly as he won the EFL Cup and Europa League during his tenure.

Andy Mitten, editor of fanzine United We Stand, told BBC Radio that neither the players nor the fans would miss Mourinho.

The smiling, charming Mourinho who arrived at Chelsea declaring himself "a special one" 14 years ago, has always been replaced by a surly, haggered-looking operator, dismissive of any and all questioning of his personal responsibility. But as his previous spells in Madrid and at Stamford Bridge show, when a results-driven manager starts losing, there is nothing left to save his job.

The United board had seen enough and chose to bring in a new manager, and the majority of you agreed.
