Odds drop on Zinedine Zidane becoming Man United’s next manager

Zinedine Zidane & Manchester United

Towards the end of August, the Times reported that Zinedine Zidane is keen on succeeding Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

How long will Mourinho remain at Old Trafford?

The Special One is in his third year at the Theatre of Dreams. Historically, Mourinho usually leaves clubs after three years.

Yet Mourinho is committed to Man United until 2020.

After four matches in the new Premier League, Man United have two wins and two defeats.

Last time out United beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor. That victory arrested a run of successive defeats to Brighton and Tottenham.

Man United beat Leicester in round one of the new campaign.

Returning to Zidane, the Times previously told their readers the following:

Zinedine Zidane has made it known that he would be interested in succeeding Mourinho if he left, but United have denied talking to the former Real Madrid coach.

Odds drop on Zinedine Zidane joining Man United

Zinedine Zidane is the clear favourite with Ladbrokes to replace Jose Mourinho at Man United.

The former Real Madrid boss is just 7/4 with the bookies to be United’s next boss.

Meanwhile, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been installed as a 12/1 shot, with GARETH SOUTHGATE among the list of runners at 25/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Jose’s future with United is looking less stable by the day and while our traders think Zidane’s the man to replace him, we’re not yet ruling out a shock appointment in the Red Devil dugout.”
