Lowry hotel fans tearful after Jose Mourinho's departure

- He won an Europa League and an EFL Cup during his two and a half years in charge of the Red Devils

Jose Mourinho bid the staff of Lowry Hotel goodbye after his contract was abruptly terminated by Manchester United on Tuesday, December 18.

The Portuguese tactician was in charge of the Red Devils for two and a half year and won an Europa League and an EFL Cup during his reign at the club.

Mou's relationship with his players was disappointing but the 55-year-old had an impressive time at the hotel.

The former Real Madrid coach had been living at the hotel since the summer of 2016, and during his lengthy stay he'd become a familiar face to staff at the hotel.

Having learnt of his sack at Carrington, Mourinho appeared in "good spirits", according to one unnamed resident at the hotel.

"It looked like he was doing his paperwork, having a snack and saying his goodbyes," they told the Daily Mail .

"He made a point of seeking some people out and it looked like he was in good spirits. A lot of the staff appeared to be very upset and a couple went for a hug."

However, Sunday's defeat to leaders Liverpool makes United sit sixth on the log with 19 points on the log - despite spending as much as £400 million on players during the Portuguese's tenure.

Meanwhile, Mourinho's termination is expected to cost the club £18 million in severances.

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

"The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future."

Club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly been named as his interim successor until the end of the season.

Legit.ng recalls that Manchester United announced the sack of Jose Mourinho barely three years in charge at the Theatre of Dreams.

United have recorded poor strings of results all through their campaign including their 3-1 bashing at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.

Mourinho's assistant and former captain Micheal Carrick is reportedly going to be in charge until a new manager is appointed.
