Manchester United sacked manager Jose Mourinho after having suffered their worst start to a season for 28 years.

United sacked Jose Mourinho on Tuesday after a dismal start to the season.

While an official statement from the club confirmed they would be "appointing a new caretaker manager until the end of the season, as a thorough recruitment process for a new full-time manager is conducted", pundit Gary Neville urged the United hierarchy to pull out all the stops for Pochettino.

And while some have criticised the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, Klopp remains full of respect for Mourinho and all he has achieved in the game.

It seems no-one can do anything right at struggling English Premier League giants Manchester United at the moment.
