MUST comment on Jose Mourinho sacking

Responding to the news that Jose Mourinho has been sacked a spokesperson for MUST commented:

"We all understand that the role of football manager is a results based position and clearly the results have not been satisfactory. The regression of the team led by the manager may be the immediate trigger for today’s action, it is also the result of some poor decisions over the last six years. Three managerial appointments each with different playing styles and the player investments that they triggered.

To achieve long term expectations of our supporters this needs to be a catalyst for a fundamental review of the football operation to reset our culture and playing philosophy, then restructuring the football operation, appointing a manager and investing significantly in player transfers consistent with that philosophy. 

Clearly times have changed since Sir Alex Ferguson ran the club pretty much from top to bottom and a Director of Football role must be a key consideration to lead that process. We'd like to see funds for team investment ring-fenced and significant independence given to football appointments by people with football expertise. 

It is important now that we all come together behind the team and we see the players giving their all for the Club and the fans for the rest of this season and beyond."
