Manchester United players have arrived for training on Tuesday morning just shortly after manager Jose Mourinho was sacked
Left-back Luke Shaw had a smile on his face and gave a thumbs up to the cameras.
Jose Mourinho’s two-and-a-half year reign came to an end at 9:46am following the club’s worst start to a top-flight season since 1990.
His last game was a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
The club released a statement on their website announcing Mourinho’s dismissal, which read: ‘Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect.
‘The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
‘A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.’
Mourinho, who was pictured arriving at Carrington at 9:02am, just 44 minutes before being sacked on Tuesday, is set to receive a £22.5m pay-off with the club still in the Champions League.
