Man United are sixth in the Premier League with 26 points after 17 matches.
United are eight points behind fifth-placed Arsenal, and nine points behind Chelsea in fourth place.
Where next for Jose Mourinho?
Many have long speculated about Mourinho’s future after his time at Man United ended.
Will the Special One ever manage in the Premier League again?
Obviously there is no chance Mourinho will ever get a job in the dugouts at Chelsea, Liverpool or Man United again. While Arsenal now how Unai Emery.
Could Mourinho end up at Tottenham? Perhaps is Man United manage to snare Mauricio Pochettino from Spurs at the end of the year?
Other than that, Mourinho’s possible only other Premier League destination is Wolves, considering Jorge Mendes’s influence at Molineux.
.@ManUtd caretaker WONT be Butt, Carrick or Wenger. Will be external. Carrick and McKenna to take training. Decision had to be taken in best interests of club it was felt.
