Jose Mourinho's tenure at Manchester United comes to an end as the Red Devils sacked the Portuguese manager after the recent run of disappointing results.

The 'Special-One' joined the English club in 2016, and guided the club to win 1 EFL Cup, 1 FA Community Shield, and 1 Europa League title.

However, he lost his hold on the team this season, and the Red Devils have performed way below expectations. They are currently 6th on the Premier League table, 19 points behind the leaders, Liverpool. All their star players are out of form, and Jose Mourinho's sack was seen coming.

Right on this note, here is a list of 3 managers who could replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United. Their former player, Micheal Carrick, is scheduled to take over training at the club, and a care-taker manager will be appointed in the next few days. A permanent appointment will be made next summer.

#3 Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur's current manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is emerging as a top target to replace Jose Mourinho at the club.

The former Argentine international joined Tottenham Hotspur as a manager in 2014, and has done a decent job for the club since then. He brought stability to the club, and Spurs regularly compete for the Premier League title despite struggling to compete with their rivals in the transfer market.

Pochettino is known for a high pressing, attacking style of football, which will inject new life at Old Trafford. His commendable man management will unite the team's dressing room, and get the best out of players like Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.

Luring the former Southampton manager from Spurs might prove to be a difficult task for the Red Devils, however, he is a top manager and is a perfect candidate to take the record Premier League champions back to their best.
