Ashley Young: Manchester United players didn't celebrate Jose Mourinho sacking

After Ole, another one of Sir Alex’s disciples is planning to return to Man United: Here’s why

Mourinho lost his job in the wake of United's 3-1 defeat at rivals Liverpool on December 16, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer taking over as caretaker boss until the end of the season.

"And let's be clear, it's no coincidence that the board at United sacked Jose Mourinho with a favourable run of fixtures on the horizon".

The former United striker got off to the flawless start, by guiding the team to a 5-1 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.

As a result, fans have been given a new lease on life and hopes of Champions League qualification have been given a major boost as United look to make the top four.

Highlights from Manchester United's 5-1 win over Cardiff in the Premier League.

Mourinho, who replaced Dutchman Louis van Gaal in 2016, won the Europa League and League Cup in his first campaign but his third season was dominated by media reports of a rift with Pogba, while United laboured on the pitch playing boring soccer.

"In games before we've had a lot of chances that could've maybe ended up with a scoreline like that".

"For me, I am a supporter of Zidane in relation to the man", Saha said.

Now sixth on the Premier League log, Man United are eight points away from fourth place.

"Obviously, it has been a different week with the change of manager and I'd like to thank Jose for the trophies we won together and wish him luck for the future. Not everything worked well but things went well, we won trophies", Pogba said. "So those people need to respect him and remember what he did".
