Manchester United are set to sack Jose Mourinho this weekend, regardless of their result against Newcastle United and will place Michael Carrick in charge temporarily, according to The Mirror.
The Red Devils have been abject this season, with the Portuguese trainer leading the Old Trafford club to their worst start to a campaign in over two decades.
A 0-0 home draw against Valencia in midweek did not help Mourinho’s cause, with the United players seemingly turning against their manager.
With reports in the press stating that the Red Devils coach’s position was under threat, it has been widely reported that the Portuguese trainer will be given his marching order this weekend.
The Mirror state Carrick, who has been brought into United’s coaching staff this term after retiring as a player last season, will be put in temporary charge until the club can find a suitable long-term replacement.
The Manchester club are already adrift of the Premier League frontrunners and host Newcastle United in the late kick-off on Saturday – with all eyes on whether Mourinho will still be in charge after the game.
