The Portuguese boss has overseen a pretty turgid start to life as United manager, as evidenced by yesterday’s frustrating 0-0 draw at home to Burnley, which leaves the Red Devils a lousy eighth place in the Premier League.
That, coupled with other embarrassing defeats to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City have left United supporters restless – and one fan account on Twitter is even trying to raise money for a plane to fly over Old Trafford with a banner reading ‘Mourinho Out’ attached to the tale.
No, seriously, we’re not joking:
We are looking to organise for a plane to fly a #MourinhoOut banner over Old Trafford. Any donations would be massively appreciated. Thanks.

@GetMourinhoOut he is creating a toxic atmosphere – like at Chelsea and RM – I fear that it will go from bad to worse

David Moyes received the exact same treatment during his time as manager, and he only lasted nine months.
We have absolutely no idea what to make of this – does Mourinho deserve this already? And who would take over? Or is it even genuine? Could this be a clever ploy by a City or Liverpool fan?
