Jose Mourinho has been sacked as Manchester United manager, and it seems many fans are relieved by the news.
The announcement of the Portuguese coach's sacking came as a shock on Tuesday morning, two days after his side suffered a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.
After 17 games, his side are 19 points behind Jurgen Klopp's league leaders and their fight for a place in the Premier League's top four is falling apart.
Paul Pogba's likely celebrations, United's awful goalscoring record and Mourinho's next managerial appointment were all joked about in the aftermath of the shock news.

Three years and a day since Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea. His dad was sacked by Rio Ave at Christmas in 1984 as well.— Jonathan Wilson (@jonawils) December 18, 2018
