Jose Mourinho Will Be Sacked Whether He Wins Or Loses Today (See New Shocking Details)
Manchester United boss Mourinho faces Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday knowing he faces a fight to turn the club’s fortunes around.
And the Mirror have claimed that, regardless of the result against old enemy Rafa Benitez, Mourinho will be sacked this weekend.
The report claims United board members have had enough of Jose Mourinho, who has alienated players and staff alike in recent months.
The 55-year-old has been at loggerheads with Paul Pogba ever since the two became embroiled in a spat against Tottenham at Wembley in February.
He has also clashed with Anthony Martial, while Marcus Rashford’s development has stunted.
The Mirror say United have decided to axe Mourinho, though, after Tuesday’s goalless draw with Valencia.
The Red Devils were drab and insipid as the La Liga side emerged from the match unscathed and untested.
Michael Carrick is supposedly in line to take temporary charge.
But Zinedine Zidane remains the favourite to get the job on a full-time basis.
For Mourinho, it will be his second sacking in under three years.
The 55-year-old was axed by Chelsea in December 2015 despite the club easing to the Premier League title the season before.
Mourinho has had his moments at United.
