Jose Mourinho is the new Manchester United manager, with BetVictor going 750/1 that he wins four trophies next season
The waiting is over and the inevitable has happened. Jose Mourinho is the new manager of Manchester United and the bookies have been quick to price up a few special bets for the 2016/17 season.
BetVictor offer 750/1 that the Red Devils claim an amazing quadruple next season, consisting of the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.
It’s clear that Mourinho likes winning trophies and he will want to rack up the silverware at Old Trafford in addition to building a legacy that was not achieved at Chelsea after his second coming.
BetVictor offer 5/4 that Mourinho wins a major trophy with Manchester United next season, with 4/7 about the Portuguese not getting any silverware during his first campaign.
However, there will be money for the Red Devils winning the Premier League and odds of 11/2 say that United win the title at the first time of asking under Mourinho.
There is 8/1 available that Manchester United go unbeaten at Old Trafford next term, with Mourinho famously achieving this with Chelsea, while you can get 150/1 that United don’t lose a single game next term.
Meanwhile, Saturday’s Champions League final sees Real Madrid clash with Atletico Madrid and there are odds of 2/1 about Mark Clattenburg issuing a red card.
After 12 yellow cards in the 2014 Final (five in extra-time) between the sides, the Premier League referee is likely to be in for a busy night in the San Siro.
BetVictor make serial offender Sergio Ramos, who equalised deep into injury time in Turin two years ago, one of their 8/1 co-favs to receive the first card from Clattenburg. We bet 2/1 there is a red card shown in the game
BetVictor are keen to lay Cristiano Ronaldo to be first goalscorer at 4/1 despite the fact that the striker has scored 16 of the Whites 27 CL goals this term.
Ronaldo is 2/1 to score more goals in the 90 minutes than Antoine Griezmann who is 3/1 with the tie at Evens.
Punters have also been hit with Mourinho Mania and United are 5/4 to win any major Trophy next season; when you consider Louis van Gaal was sacked despite winning a trophy this term that might look attractive but we believe the current United side need a major overhaul if they are to challenge for the Premier League (11/2) title.
