Mourinho firing doesn't fix malaise at Man United

Mourinho firing doesn't fix malaise at Man United

The club is 19 pints behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, who they lost to (1-3) last weekend.

The breakdown of Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has mirrored United's decline this season.

In recent months, he's been quick to remind fans and reporters of his history of success, but ultimately the failure and drama at Manchester United snowballed on him.

After Jose Mourinho's firing on Tuesday, United says it is conducting a "thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager" - signaling they won't be in charge until next season.

The league-leading Reds are now 19 points ahead of United after just 17 matches but the 11-point gap to the Champions League spots was arguably even more concerning for Mourinho, who shouldered the responsibility for the defeat. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson after winning the Premier League title in the 2012/13 season, it marked the end of an iconic 26-year tenure as manager. So United knew just what it was getting when it gave the game's most volatile character a route back into the dugout in 2016.

And that speaks more about his own shortcomings than those of Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho.

A United source told AFP that Mourinho had been supported in his efforts to sign players and described reports of player power at the club as being key to the sacking as wide of the mark. Jose Mourinho, United manager for the last two and a half seasons, was gone.

With the Portuguese gone, United may make their move for the Spurs boss, who has taken his club to consecutive finishes in the top three but has yet to bring a trophy to North London. Also, the authority of a rare female doctor of an English Premier League team had been undermined while being publicly humiliated by Mourinho.

Former club captain Gary Neville raged at a club "rotten to the core" when rumours over Mourinho's future first circulated and after the Liverpool defeat described United's board as "so naive it's unbelievable".

The manager's overall EPL points haul of 176 since his appointment by United lagged behind City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea during the same period.

United said on Tuesday that Mourinho's departure allows the club to overhaul the transfer strategy and implement the director of football structure Mourinho opposed.
