Jose Mourinho's sudden yet inevitable sacking as Manchester United manager has brought to an end a rather special era in England.

Now that the Portuguese is gone, the Premier League is without all three of its most successful ever managers for the first time since its inception.

Sir Alex Ferguson, winner of 13 Premier League titles at Manchester United, retired from management back in 2013 having taken over 27 years previously.

Arsene Wenger then followed suit in the summer as a three-time winner with Arsenal, who he managed for 1235 games spanning 22 years.

And on Tuesday morning, following an awful start to the 2018/19 season, fellow three-time winner Mourinho lost his job at United.

Ferguson, Wenger and Mourinho shared unparalleled rivalries throughout their time in the Premier League and even after Fergie's retirement, Wenger and Mourinho continued to fight.

Public spats, touchline bust-ups and passion were all part and parcel of games between Wenger and Mourinho, which rarely failed to deliver.


But now it's all over, which has prompted Arsenal's chief photographer, Stuart MacFarlane, to make one last dig at Mourinho as he begins managerial unemployment.

Almost immediately after United confirmed Mourinho had been sacked, MacFarlane tweeted a picture of Wenger waving as a way of taunting the former Chelsea boss. Check it out.

Perfection. An underlying respect exists between Mourinho and Wenger but Arsenal fans will have loved seeing the Special One sacked by United.

He's had a lot of negative things to say about Wenger down the years, like accusing the Frenchman of being a 'specialist in failure', but now the shoe is on the other foot.
