What if Mourinho fails at United

In case the Portuguese fails at Man United | Zidane is set to replace Mourinho

"Zizou" instead of "The Special One"?

If the bookmakers have their way, Jose Mourinho (55 / Manchester United) is the first candidate for a coach discharge in the 2018/19 Premier League season. Despite 81 points and second place in the preseason.

ZinedineZidane (46) should replace Mourinho if he fails with the "Red Devils".

France legend Zidane is the favorite to succeed him in the Manchester United coaching chair. This is reported by the English newspaper "The Sun", citing internal sources. “Zizou” left Real Madrid two months ago at the zenith of its success. He then had offers from Juventus Turin to work as sports director and from Qatar to take over the national team.

But why is there a crisis between Manchester United and Jose Mourinho?

➤ "Mou" is grumpy! He shoots against his own club! The Portuguese coach is currently on tour with his team in the US to prepare for the upcoming season. After the test match defeat against arch rivals Liverpool (1: 4) in front of over 100,000 US spectators in Michigan, he said: “I would not have spent any money on this game!” Of course, his own fans do not like to hear something like that.

Vice-chairman Ed Woodward (46) also got a swipe: "The Special One" publicly stated that weeks ago he had given him a list of five desired transfers, of which if he were lucky, he would get one more.

Tired of Manchester United Mourinho?

The relationship between coach and club bosses or coach and fans seems cracked. If the results in the first competitive games suffer as a result (league opener: Fri., August 10 against Leicester City), it could lead to a break.

And then it could come to a real coaching hammer ...
