The Portuguese coach upset a host of players during his reign

However, Manchester United are not expected to sell the French World Cup victor right now.

Tossed around the rumor mill have been the names of Ryan Giggs and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while Michael Carrick will take over as the interim moving forward as the team searches for a caretaker coach.

On Wednesday night, a video called "The Most Famous Night of Ole's Career" appeared on Manchester United's website. It was later taken down, but not before eagle-eyed fans had taken a screenshot.

The Portuguese enjoyed a successful opening campaign at Old Trafford, winning the League Cup and Europa League.

The former striker is now in charge of Molde in his native Norway, but their 2018 season has finished for winter and the new campaign does not kick off until March.

Solskjaer is now in charge at Norwegian side Molde but their 2018 season has finished for the winter and does not re-start until March.

What gives the story even more legs, or just makes things weirder, is Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg tweeting (and then of course deleting) a congratulations to Solskjaer for taking over Manchester United, and declaring it a "great day for Norwegian football".

United are also understood to be interested in hiring a technical director for the first time in their history with the new man expected to be in place before they appoint a permanent successor to Mourinho in the summer. Having spent nearly £400m in transfer fees alone across two and a half seasons, United have been left with very little to show with their recent forays into the transfer market.

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 new regulations could face legal challenges from the National Rifle Association, bump stock owners or manufacturers. After that, it will be illegal to possess them under the same federal laws that prohibit machine guns.

The Special One was axed yesterday following horrendous form this season which sees the Red Devils down in sixth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool.

However, given the tense relationship between Pogba and Mourinho, Neville felt the midfielder was guilty of a callous piece of opportunism.

French World Cup victor Pogba posted "Caption this!" alongside a picture of himself wearing a knowing look on his Instagram and Twitter accounts in the wake of Mourinho's sacking on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT).

Fletcher fears Mourinho's sacking could convince the flamboyant Pogba that he can now get away with whatever behaviour he feels like, unless the new manager clamps down quickly.

"And vice versa Jose Mourinho doesn't think Paul Pogba is as talented a player as he thinks he is".

Mauricio Pochettino has distanced himself from speculation linking him with the vacant managerial job at Manchester United, insisting he is focused on giving his best for Tottenham.

He told the Mirror: "Manchester United could not have picked a worst time to sack Jose Mourinho and the blame for that is laid at Ed Woodward's door".

Another former United star backed up Neville's sharp criticism of the underperforming Pogba.
