Manchester United fans want Jose Mourinho sacked immediately after Liverpool defeat

Manchester United supporters are in general agreement that Jose Mourinho’s position as manager is untenable following Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.

There is, on top of that, a widespread feeling among the fan-base that Man United as a club requires a more fundamental restructuring in which a director of football is appointed and Ed Woodward is left exclusively with merely business decisions for the club.

Sunday’s resounding loss at Liverpool, during which Man United showed no ambition to win the game, left them with their worst ever points tally after 17 Premier League games.

Supporters were convinced that keeping Mourinho at this point would be a pointless exercise which would only see United regress further.

At any other football club, Mourinho would have been sacked some time ago. You would not even need to base that decision on results; the mood around the team and their style of football, surely, is enough for anybody to see that the ship is sinking.

Unfortunately, United are something of a business these days. And, like with any business, they will push the button on Mourinho only when it is cheapest to do so, leaving supporters with the same old story, week-in-week-out, until it becomes mathematically impossible to qualify for the Champions League in, say, March or April.

It promises to be a very long few months, with little to feel excited about.
