Jose Mourinho isn’t threatened with dismissal for now
Manchester United have no plans to sack their head coach, Jose Mourinho, before the end of the season.
Mourinho and his team are under tremendous pressure during this season. The stress drops sometimes but it always returns – all you need is just one bad result.
The Red Devils lost to Liverpool with a score of 3:1 on the eve and are already 11 points behind the Premier League’s Top-4. Mourinho suffered that defeat in front of some of his respected bosses who attended Anfield that day, including Ed Woodward and Sir Alex Ferguson.
A real threat to remain without the Champions League for next season hung over United. It seems that only the leadership’s urgent intervention in the situation can stop this crisis.
However, Manchester Evening News has learned that the club continues to function as usual and is not going to rush with the decision regarding Mourinho’s future.
United fired David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal both only when achieving the Champions League ticket became technically impossible. Mourinho hasn’t lost such chances yet, and there is still more than half of the season ahead.
