Mourinho’s dismissal before the New Year would cost 24 m. for United
If Manchester United still decide to get rid of mentor Jose Mourinho before January, it will cost the club £24 m.
Recall that Mourinho signed a new contract with the Red Devils, what is calculated until the end of the 2019/20 season and has the option of renewal for 12 months.
The start of this campaign showed that extending cooperation with José may have been a hasty decision. Mourinho came across the traditional ‘third season syndrome’ and, it seems, is on the verge of losing the situation out of control.
After the defeat 1-3 from Liverpool on Sunday, United are 11 points behind the top 4 of the Premier League, and now the club’s bosses are in a serious dilemma.
In case of Mourinho’s dismissal, the Devils will not only have to find a specialist who is ready to accept the crisis team during the season, but also to pay solid compensation to the 55-year-old Portuguese.
