Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has lost the confidence of the board and is set to be sacked this weekend.
Senior United sources have told Mirror Sport he has reached the point of no return, with the axe ready to fall whatever the outcome of Saturday’s match against Newcastle.
Mourinho has alienated players, fans and staff at Old Trafford with his divisive approach in recent months.
And those in charge of the club, led by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, have had enough.
United currently sit in 10th in the Premier League, already nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City and are without a win in their last four games in all competitions.
