The Portuguese manager was reportedly sacked due to the club’s poor start to the 2018/19 season. United currently sit 7th in the English Premier League table, winning just seven of their 16 games. Mourinho was appointed on 27 May, 2016. The Portuguese manager won three trophies during his stay at Old trafford.
