No more Mourinho? Jose clear favourite in Prem sack race

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could be running out of time at Old Trafford, according to our latest odds.

United came from behind to beat Newcastle United 3-2 before the international break, but that hasn’t ended doubts over Mourinho’s future.

He’s 11/8 to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked this term, well ahead of Southampton’s Mark Hughes at 4/1.

If Mourinho does go, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane looks likely to replace him. We go 4/7 that the French legend takes over next.

Antonio Conte is second in the betting, though some distance back at 10/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Zidane may be favourite for the United job but with Premier League experience to his name and history of replacing Mourinho, this could be one for Conte.”
