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

Pogba remained on the bench during Sunday's 3-1 loss to Liverpool, and after a 1-1 draw with Wolves earlier this season he told reporters he would like to see ManU "attack, attack, attack" in its games at home. Articles appear on for a limited time. Mourinho's side then retained the title the following season and he remains the fastest manager in Premier League history to reach 50 wins, achieved in 63 games.

"I've been there, players start forming cliques, in the hope of getting their manager sacked and that's what we're seeing now at Old Trafford", Ince reportedly stated.

Mourinho's reign had started well enough with the League Cup and the Europa League trophies but for a club that has been champions of England 20 times, neighbours Manchester City's dominance over them in the league has hurt.

May 27, 2016 - Appointed as Manchester United manager, replacing Louis van Gaal.

April 7, 2018 - Paul Pogba scores twice and Chris Smalling gets the victor as United come from two goals behind to win 3-2 at Manchester City and prevent Guardiola's side securing the Premier League title in the derby.

The club said in a statement he had left with immediate effect.

Over three seasons, the 55-year-old delivered some memorable results - 3-2 at Manchester City last season and, recently, beating Juventus in Turin - but never, not even once, looked close to cultivating any particular collective style which players could unite behind.

"First of all I want to send my best wishes to him".

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". There are always challenges as the manager at such a big club with the standards that we have set over the first couple of seasons.

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.
