Troubled Manchester United manager could be the first Premier League boss to leave his club this season
Jose Mourinho is entering his third season at Old Trafford although it’s not exactly been a sparkling success at the north-west club.
Despite finishing second in the Premier League last season, there was a dismal showing in the FA Cup final defeat against Chelsea, while Manchester United were dumped out of the Champions League at the last sixteen stage by Sevilla.
Previously to this, there was a Europa League success although United haven’t really looked like competing for the title since Mourinho has been in charge and Ladbrokes offer 20/1 that Jose is the first manager to leave his Premier League club this season.
It appears as though the former Special One is getting some excuses in early, with Mourinho claiming that he’s playing the waiting game with regard to returning World Cup stars, while there’s also the Paul Pogba dilemma which has basically amounted to the manager questioning why his player can’t deliver on the pitch at club level.
Bet365 think a Mourinho early exit is far more likely, with the world leading betting company trading at 13.00, while Ladbrokes have Javi Gracia at prohibitively short odds and 5.00 might be a touch on the skinny side.
Should you wish to back the current Watford manager, Unibet have 7.00 about the Spaniard winning the infamous Sack Race, with chairman Gino Pozzo not known for his long-term thinking.
Rafael Benitez continues to trade short although this was the case last season and another manager who could be worth an interest is Slavisa Jokanovic.
