Manchester United were already slipping off pace, however when rubber hits the road, the Red Devils knew they had to shake things up.
José Mourinho had let slip his integrity at the Theatre of Dreams and reports of a continued meltdown with some senior players and board members hawked about by news outlets had quenched the small faith club bigwig Ed Woodward had in the Portuguese.
Woodward and the rest of the board had finally had enough of taken waves and after waves of bollocking from the media, and giving Jose Mourinho the sack was on the cards.
Their huge loss to Liverpool was the last straw. Mourinho was finally sent parking earlier this month, and club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker.
United are still on the hunt for a manager. Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the job, former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is also in the fray. But reports doing the rounds say Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has been considered as another option should they fail in nabbing any of the previous two.
Under Solskjaer, United have gone on to have massive wins and some suspect the former Molde manager could be handed the reins of the club–that is if he can get United playing in the Champions League next campaign. United are sixth in the Premier League, eight points adrift fourth-placed Chelsea.
