Manchester United have sacked Jose Mourinho after just 17 games into the 2018-19 Premier League season.
United lost 3-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, which was Jose’s final match as manager. The Old Trafford unit is 19 points adrift from leaders Liverpool, besides being 11 points off the final Champions League qualifying spot.
United aren’t set to appoint a permanent manager as of now. According to BBC reporter Simon Stone, the caretaker or interim manager will not be Nicky Butt or Michael Carrick. But the club could go for someone externally outside the club.
It has been reported that Michael Carrick and first-team coach Kieran McKenna will be part of the training sessions.
“A caretaker-manager will be appointed until the end of the season while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager,” United said in a statement.
It remains to be seen who joins the club next as the manager to end the season for United on a better note.
