‘We have to get Mourinho out’: Jose under pressure as more and more Man United fans call for his sacking after Brighton humiliation

Twitter was full of Manchester United fans sharpening their knives for manager Jose Mourinho on Sunday as his side dropped points in humiliating style at Brighton.

Mourinho has been the Red Devils boss since he replaced Louis van Gaal in May 2016, but many now think it’s time he moved on.

Fans were furious after seeing Brighton race into a 3-1 half-time lead through goals from Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross, who scored from the penalty spot after a foul by Eric Bailly.

Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba scored consolation goals for United who lost 3-2.

Many of United’s players performed poorly, including Lukaku despite his goal.

But none of them copped as much stick on social media as Mourinho.

One fan wrote simply: “We have to get Mourinho out”. Others were less polite.

If United were to sack Mourinho it would not be a cheap transaction.

Mourinho is under contract until 2020 so United would have to spend a fortune paying him off.

The Special One is no stranger to a meaty pay-off, having been sacked twice by Chelsea in the past.
