Manchester United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward has revealed why the club sacked manager, Jose Mourinho.
According to Metro UK, Woodward told United’s players at Old Trafford training ground shortly after Mourinho’s sack that one of the reasons the club fired the Portuguese gaffer was because of the Red Devils’ current position on the Premier League table.
The report claimed that Woodward also said that Mourinho’s relationship with some of United’s most high profile players was another reason why the former Chelsea coach was sacked, adding that United board could not continue under the circumstances.
The report also claimed that the United boss did not only put the whole blame on the 55-year-old.
Manchester United will tackle Cardiff City on Saturday in the Premier League fixture at home.
