Mourinho to be first to leave and Zidane to take over both odds-on

Every single bookmaker on the Oddschecker grids think it’s likely he’ll go first.

Jose Mourinho has been cut to odds-on for first manager to be sacked, and Zinedine Zidane remains odds-on to take over.

It’s now a best price of 4/5 that Mourinho gets his marching orders soon, with one bookie going as short as 8/11. That’s far clear of Neil Warnock, who is Jose’s only closest rival in the market at 8/1.

As you would expect, interest in this market has been high since the defeat to West Ham, a whopping 79% of all bets have gone on Mourinho.

Elsewhere, Zinedine Zidane is the unanimous favourite to be the next permanent manager at Old Trafford, as short as 8/11 to join compatriot Paul Pogba at the club.

Oddschecker Spokesman George Elek: “According to the bookies, Mourinho is more likely than not to be the next Premier League manager to leave, and a poor result in tonight's Champions League tie could bring his time in Manchester to an end.

“Some reports in Italy have run a story that Antonio Conte me be being lined up for the job, he’s still available at a lofty 10/1.”
