After Jose Mourinho was sacked, Manchester United seemingly announced their new caretaker coach by accident via a video on the club's official website, but later deleted it.

United revealed the news in a short media release less than 48 hours after a 3-1 Premier League loss to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

The Red Devils sacked Mourinho on Tuesday after the club fell 19 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool and 11 points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

United will look to appoint a permanent boss at the end of the season.

At the time, United called Mourinho the best manager in the game, but the job was too big for him and his tenure was marked with high-profile spats with key players, notably French World Cup-winning midfielder Paul Pogba who cost £90m.

He won six EPL titles, a Champions League and two FA Cups during his time in Manchester. "The only person who can really say what happened is him".

"My view is they need someone who meets the three key principles of the football club, and that is promotion of youth, entertaining football and to win football matches".

Should the United hierarchy move for the former Espanyol boss, it is set to cost them £34 million, with Pochettino still having four years left on his contract with the London club.
