Mourinho to be sacked soon: If the reports from England are to be believed, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is on the verge of losing his job.
Manchester United are enduring a turbulent start to the 2018/19 Premier League campaign, the Red Devils have been utterly miserable. Apart from an unconvincing win against Leicester City in the first week, Jose Mourinho’s team has gone downhill and went on to lose two successive league games.
The first one of them was against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium which they lost 3-2 and the second one at the Old Trafford against Tottenham Hotspur which saw them suffer a 3-0 defeat. Jose Mourinho’s side has never been really united and well-knit since this summer, and that is down to the manager himself.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has been passing negative comments about his squad and the board since the start of pre-season, and it is seen with the results that the team morale is not high and player ambitions are scattered. The fans have also seemed to turn against the boss and want him out while some believe that he is the right man.
The atmosphere in the AON Training Complex at Carrington is not positive at all and players are expected to be turning against their manager. On top of that, poor signings excluding that of Fred in this summer’s transfer window have made the Premier League club look much inferior in front of their rivals.
Ed Woodward and Co. are currently not contemplating Jose Mourinho’s relief despite a second successive loss, but the players do believe that another loss could see the manager see the exit door. United are up next against Burnley and the stakes don’t look high for either team amid poor form.
Daily Mail reports, via a source which informed them, that players are already contemplating the possibility of Zidane’s arrival at United.
“Some think he’ll be out if they lose at Burnley. Others can’t see him lasting beyond September.
“We’ve seen this before and it just feels the same. The club will say it’s supporting Jose but we all saw what happened with Louis. The players are already talking about the possibility of Zidane coming in,” the source told Daily Mail.
Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte are two big candidates to take over as the Manchester United boss should the Portuguese manager get the sack. Yet, it does not look like anything but another loss could put Mourinho in a dirty swamp.
