SkyBet have revealed the 15 managers most likely to succeed Mourinho in the Old Trafford hot seat
Jose Mourinho looks to be moving closer and closer to losing his job as Manchester United’s manager.
Mourinho, the Portuguese, is living on the brink after guiding United to just three victories in their first seven Premier League matches, leaving the Old Trafford club 10th in the table.
Saturday’s 3-1 reverse at West Ham was arguably the worse defeat of the lot, coming at the end of a seven-day spell in which the Red Devils were also held by Wolves and beaten by Derby in the Carabao Cup.
Disagreements with key players such as Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly have made this a real crisis week, and reports suggest Mourinho will be axed in the coming days.
Zinedine Zidane, the former Real Madrid manager, has been linked with succeeding Mourinho for a number of weeks, but who is the favourite to take the job should the Portuguese be axed?
