Manchester United Want Zinedine Zidane To Follow Jose Mourinho

By David Kappel - Aug 01, 2018 02:02 PM @kappilinho

With Jose Mourinho's pre-season frustrations having reportedly shocked players and staff, it has now been claimed that Manchester United have identified former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane as the Portuguese's potential replacement should he not see out the season.

The 55-year-old, who is entering his third season at Old Trafford, has a history of departing clubs during or after his third campaign as boss.

He did not stay longer than three years in his previous jobs at FC Porto, Inter Milan, Los Blancos and Chelsea (second stint) – he did start a fourth campaign during his first reign with the Blues, but left the club a few games into the season.

Mourinho has expressed his frustrations with United's business in this transfer window so far, having revealed that the club has not managed to buy any of his five main targets.

He also recently had a rant about the quality of some of United's youth players who were part of the club's pre-season tour of the US while a few of the club's first team stars are still on holiday.

English publication The Sun has claimed that Red Devils officials and some of the players were not happy with Mourinho's comments, which deepened fears of him not seeing out the remaining two years left on his contract. According to the report, a United source has revealed that the club's first call would be to Zidane, who won nine trophies in just two and a half years at Los Blancos.

The Frenchman is currently on a sabbatical from football, and it remains to be seen how United's season will turn out and whether or not Zidane would even be prepared to take charge of the English giants.

He won't i think Jose has become predictable and his nepotism causes him. and he plays defensive football and relies too much in counter attacks.

They should buy him players that he wants and they can call him failure.he uses players that are not part of his plans because he has no choice

Lets wait & see. If Jose really leaves United, I think any Man United legend can do better...i.e Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville to mention just a few. I think Zidane did well with Madrid 'cause he used to play there. Amen.
