Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring for Pep Guardiola's side with a superb strike.

The reigning Premier League champions lead 1-0 at half-time.

"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," reads United's statement.

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

Former United star Ole Gunnar Solskjær is one of the strong favourites to become caretaker manager, with many fans already warming up to the idea of him returning to Old Trafford.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has already praised Mourinho's contribution to the club, saying that he is the best United manager since Sir Alex Ferguson.

"He's a winner, isn't he? How can I sit here and say anything bad about José Mourinho?" he said.

"He's a serial winner everywhere he has gone.

"He's been sacked at United, but he's won them a couple of trophies. He's done the best job since Alex Ferguson left.

"It seems like they sort of struggled, but José came in and put a couple of trophies in the cabinet, so I don't think you can criticise him too much.

"It will be interesting to see which direction they go with the new manager, but none of the Man Utd fans care what I say about it!"






Who should United appoint as Mourinho's successor?
