Mourinho out at Manchester United

Manchester United is looking for a new manager - the club saying Tuesday (December 18) that Jose Mourinho would leave with immediate effect.

His departure comes after a dismal start to the season.

United stuck in sixth place, almost 20 points behind deadly rivals Liverpool and Manchester City, Mourinho's frustration boiling over on the sidelines.

For the world's biggest club by revenues, it seems it wasn't good enough.

A weekend defeat by Liverpool the final straw.

Mourinho has had a stellar career - winning titles with Real Madrid and Chelsea.

He famously dubbed himself the 'special one'.

In 2016 he was brought in to revive the fortunes of Manchester United.

The club has been struggling since the retirement of legendary manager Alex Ferguson, but Mourinho has a record of sparking dissent - with club owners and players.

In Manchester it seems he fell out with star midfielder Paul Pogba and others.

A caretaker manager will now take over until the end of the season, but United's search for a savior goes on.

Among the favorites to take over, this man: Former French star Zinedine Zidane, available after his surprise decision to quit Real Madrid earlier in the year.
