Jose Mourinho odds-on in the Premier League sack race and attention is turning to who will replace him at Old Trafford and Zinedine Zidane now is odds-on to replace him at Manchester United.
United are enduring their worst start to a league season this century, have been knocked out of League Cup by Championship Derby and record signing Paul Pogba is having a public spat with Mourinho – which has seen him stripped of his captaincy duties.
Now Bookmakers are convinced that Mourinho will be the first Premier League manager to lose his job, and he is 4/7 to be first out.
Mourinho is now just 1/6 to leave this United this season, as the punters get behind the odds on him leaving.
And the Bookies believe that former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane will be the man to replace him at the Old Trafford helm. The Frenchman is just 1/2 to be the next Red Devils chief.
“Bookmakers are reporting ‘floods’ of bets coming in on Mourinho leaving, be it the first Premier League boss out or United at some point this season – either way the money is coming fast,” revealed OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“Their form is poor and it now seems a matter of when rather than if he leaves.
“And all the talk is already who will replace him with Zidane the man seemingly in line to replace him, although former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is also seeing some interest.”
Next Man United manager odds:
Zinedine Zidane 1/2
Antonio Conte 8/1
Mauricio Pochettino 14/1
Laurent Blanc 20/1
Massimiliano Allegri 20/1
