Jose Mourinho seems to have the backing and the full support of the Manchester United Board despite speculation over his future after the away loss to Brighton ❌❌ Zinedine Zidane, the former Real Madrid manager, has been heavily rumoured as a possible replacement to Mourinho 🔻 But senior sources at Manchester United have dismissed any interest in Zidane, instead insisting that there is no potential vacancy to discuss Would you want Zidane?? ✔✔ I would prefer Zidane over Mourinho anyday 🔴⚫🔴⚫ —————————————————————————- #pogba #mufc #ggmu #mufcnews #mufcfans #manunited #manunitedfc #manutdfc #manutdnews #manutdfans #manutd #mourinho #josemourinho #paulpogba #france #manchester #manchesterunited #footballnews #football #unitedfc #mu #oldtrafford #manchesterunitedfc #manunited #premierleague #zidane #ZinedineZidane #footballmanagers #josémourinho #manunews
Therefore, former United winger, who recently predicted that Mourinho would be sacked before Christmas, Zidane would be the ideal candidate for the position.
“Mourinho is on trial again. He’s never looked happy since he’s been at the club. There just seems to be no plan at Man United. Nobody seems to know where they should be going and what they should be doing. I’ve heard a little whisper to say the manager is not really giving them a lot of instruction before games. He’s just picking the team and letting them get on with it,” Sharpe told talkSPORT.
“It seems to me that he hasn’t got the players in that he wanted this summer, and he’s gone into a bit of a sulk. He’s just let the players crack on and do their own thing. When you’re moping around, moaning about who you haven’t been able to sign and about the lack of players you have, instead of bigging up the players you already have and filling them with confidence, I don’t think it’s good for team morale.”
“I think Zidane would be the ideal candidate. He’s played at the highest level, managed at the highest level and has been successful at both. He’s a big enough name who could cope with the pressure and the questions asked of managing a club of that size so I think he would be ideal.”
United have suffered a 3-2 loss at Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday evening as they will host Tottenham on Monday night.
