Bookmaker pays out on Jose Mourinho being sacked as Manchester United manager

Bookmaker pays out on Jose Mourinho being sacked as Manchester United manager

Some United players were "baffled" by Mourinho's tactics and team changes for the Spurs loss on Monday night.

Mourinho hit out at Martial multiple times this summer, even going as far to fine the player £180,000 when the 22-year-old left the pre-season tour of the USA to attend the birth of his baby girl.

The victory was Tottenham's third in three Premier League matches this season, Mauricio Pochettino's men having previously beaten Fulham and Newcastle United, and Kane said his team-mates were burying their reputation as slow starters.

The forward has been on the fringes of Mourinho's team in the last 12 months and was actively seeking a transfer this summer after his manager told the club he was surplus to requirements.

"That's me purely speaking as a fan".

"When I win matches I come here many times and you are not happy that I win matches and you say the most important is the way of playing".

United fans - and the players, apparently - feel it's only a matter of time before Mourinho faces the chop should he fail to turn things around.

Zinedine Zidane is one name that's been linked with replacing Mourinho but after he left Real Madrid on his own accord, it's a wonder whether he would even be interested.

The Red Devils struggled to beat Leicester City at home, lost to Brighton away and were then convincingly beaten at Old Trafford by top four rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

United legend Wayne Rooney, who played under Mourinho when he won the Europa League and League Cup in 2017, recently came to his former manager's defense.

"They have helped me a lot".

However, according to The Daily Telegraph Mourinho has the "immediate backing" of United's board and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
