But United are sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool, who beat them 3-1 on Sunday.

In a statement, the club 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.’
