Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United tenure is over after two and a half years and the Portuguese leaves Old Trafford with a string of unwanted records.
While Mourinho may have a Premier League record as United boss that is only surpassed by Alex Ferguson, they have failed to deliver this season and have dramatically fallen adrift in the top-four reckoning.
United confirmed Mourinho had been relieved of his duties on Tuesday, two days after a 3-1 defeat to fierce rivals Liverpool, a reverse that left them 19 points adrift of Jurgen Klopp’s table toppers.
Here, with the help of Opta data, we take a look at Mourinho’s spell.
