Bookies make Premier League manager favourite to succeed Mourinho at Man United


Manchester United fans might be worried about what will happen if Jose Mourinho does make good on those PSG links, but it seems that there is one man the bookies think is in line to replace him.

That’s Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino, who’s currently doing a brilliant job for them, and has certainly seen his reputation enhance over the last few seasons.

Not only is he knows for good football, but he’s made Spurs into a top side to boot, and brought through a host of young talent.

BetStars have made Pochettino the clear favourite to take over at odds of 4/1 according to the Express.

“BetStars Director of Trading Ian Marmion said: “After Jose Mourinho admitted that it was unlikely he will end his managerial career at Old Trafford, PSG have emerged as the 6/4 favourites to snap up the three-time Premier League winner and BetStars are already offering odds on The Special One’s immediate replacement at Manchester United.

“Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is the clear frontrunner at 4/1 to be Jose’s successor at Old Trafford, while Luis Enrique and Diego Simeone are both priced at 6/1 to fill the boots of the former Real Madrid gaffer.

“United veteran, Ryan Giggs, who won 34 major trophies during his playing career for the Red Devils, can be backed at 33/1 to become the next manager of Man United on a permanent basis. 

“Sam Allardyce and Roy Keane are both long shots at 100/1, while Harry Redknapp is the total outsider at 500/1 to substitute in for the Special One.”



While Spurs will want to keep hold of their manager, there is another person at the club who’s been linked with a move away – Harry Kane.

The links between Kane and Real Madrid don’t seem to be going away, in fact they seem to be getting stronger with each week and more goals that Kane scores.

His performance against Real reportedly convinced Cristiano Ronaldo he was good enough to join the club as well, meaning Pochettino may be the last of Spurs’ worries.
