Five Potential Replacements For Jose Mourinho At Manchester United

Jose Mourinho will be fired as manager of Manchester United after the weekend, according to senior sources from the club.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes wants Jose Mourinho to survive the sack this weekend.

The club's board are now understood to have lost confidence in their embattled boss.

Pogba publicly stated after his side's Premier League opener against Leicester City back in August that he would be in trouble if he spoke up about his situation, hinting at a bad relationship with Mourinho, and things have gone from bad to worse ever since.

Mourinho's men bounced back by downing Burnley, Watford and Young Boys, but they have since failed to win any of their last four matches.

The obvious choice, the "Zidane to Manchester United" rumours have been swirling around since the French man left Real Madrid after winning an unprecedented three Champions League crowns in a row.

United's sackings of Mourinho's predecessors, Louis van Gaal and David Moyes, were both reported before the club's announcements.

Mourinho refused to name names when pushed on who else was at fault for United's form but did say: "The same people that were to blame with the fantastic season of last season".

"We know that to improve that position we need to win these three points, but we know our opposition also need the points."

"No, I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", Mourinho said. The tail is wagging the dog.

The 55-year-old Mourinho defended himself in his Friday press conference, called for the earlier-than-usual time of 8:00 am (0700 GMT), which lasted for eight minutes and 29 seconds.

"When you look at the tables all around Europe, the tables in September and October don't reflect what is going to happen at the end of the season".

"I think about how the club is being operated". That's the reason why it was a phenomenal season.

"It has to be someone this time round that will be given time because of his affection and his history with the football club".
