The breakdown of Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has mirrored United's decline this season.

With Jose Mourinho ignominiously sacked on Tuesday morning, it's been a gleeful time for his detractors and people who dislike Manchester United.

"A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager".

The memories that stand out from Mourinho's first season with United is the return of Paul Pogba from Juventus in a world record transfer, the goalscoring feats of veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the double trophy success in the EFL Cup and Europa League.

You can't ignore what Jose has achieved as a manager previously but I feel the time has come for fresh ideas at #MUFC...!

Former club captain Gary Neville raged at a club "rotten to the core" when rumours over Mourinho's future first circulated and after the Liverpool defeat described United's board as "so naive it's unbelievable".

"We've been doing polls where 80 percent of fans wanted him to leave", said Mitten. Flush with cash from Abu Dhabi - albeit with financial practices under scrutiny by football authorities - City finished 19 points ahead of United.
