Jose Mourinho To Be Sacked This Weekend


Jose Mourinho has lost the confidence of the Manchester United board and is set to be sacked this weekend, The Mirror has reported.

Senior United sources have told Mirror Football he has reached the point of no return, with the axe ready to fall whatever the ­outcome of Saturday’s match against Newcastle.

Mourinho has alienated players, fans and staff at Old Trafford with his ­divisive approach in recent months, and those in charge of the club, led by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, have had enough.

The manager appeared resigned to his fate at an early-morning press conference yesterday where he was downcast and sullen.
