SoccerNews in General Soccer News 18 Dec 2018


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.

53.8 – In his 93 Premier League games in charge of United, Mourinho won 50, giving him a win percentage of 53.8. Only Alex Ferguson (65.2 per cent) has a better record, with Louis van Gaal (51.3) and David Moyes (50) both trailing the Portuguese.

144 – Mourinho’s reign lasted 144 games in all competitions, he has only stayed at two clubs longer – Chelsea (185) and Real Madrid (178).

0 – For the first time in the Premier League, United have a zero goal difference after 17 games. Their previous low came in the 1992-93 season (6).

151 – United have scored 151 goals in Mourinho’s 93 league matches, an average of 1.62 per game. Under Moyes, United averaged 1.65 goals per game.

26 – Under Mourinho, United have 26 points in the league after the opening 17 matches, their lowest total.

29 – This season has seen United concede 29 goals in the league, never have they let in so many goals at this stage of a Premier League campaign. Second-bottom Huddersfield Town have conceded fewer this season (28).

5 – United’s overall position after 93 games under Mourinho sees them sitting fifth, trailing fourth-placed Liverpool by 20 points and top club Manchester City by 46.

2 – The 55-year-old leaves having lifted major two trophies (United also won the Community Shield under Mourinho), both in his first season when United won the EFL Cup and Europa League.
