Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho likely to be sacked if he loses to Burnley on Sunday
Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho could be sacked if he loses again at Burnley on Sunday.
According to Mail Online, the prospect of United chief Ed Woodward axing the Portuguese coach is being openly discussed in the wake of back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham, with the possibility of Zinedine Zidane becoming the new manager.
A source told Sportsmail on Tuesday night: ‘They are saying Jose will be gone soon. Some think he’ll be out if they lose at Burnley. Others can’t see him lasting beyond September.
‘We’ve seen this before and it just feels the same. The club will say it’s supporting Jose but we all saw what happened with Louis. The players are already talking about the possibility of Zidane coming in.’
This follows a turbulent summer in which Mourinho reportedly had a series of misunderstanding with Woodward and the board over signings of new players for this season.
