Jose Mourinho seems to have underestimated Man United’s hunger for change. As the time approached to put an end to his toxic reign, it was considered that £20million is a price that is worth paying.
Mourinho had told the reporters on September that if the management sends him away they would have to pay him a lot of money. He had been dismissed only 3 months later. The latest financial record of Manchester United shows a record revenue of £208million while the profit being £44million. This is evidence of the ability of the club for absorbing failure.
In case Daniel Levy feels that a compensation pack that runs into £10million pounds will prove to be prohibitive to the pursuit of Mauricio Pochettino by Ed Woodward, he is going to be disappointed.
The manager of Tottenham gave a recent reminder as to why he has been topping the wish list when it comes to the managerial post of United by steering his squad to the quarterfinals of Champions League within 90 minutes.
Following an exit from the two cups in a span of 3 three days has taken the glitter off his candidacy for becoming the manager of Manchester United after Jose Mourinho. However, with the re-emergence of Spurs as the title contenders and the victory against Borussia Dortmund has served as a justification of the ongoing admiration of Woodward for him.
However, the executive vice chairman of Manchester United has shown his interest to continue with an extensive process to recruit the 4th manager in 6 years.
