Agent rules out Zidane move to Man United

Agent rules out Zidane move to Man United

Manchester United should have possibly sacked Jose Mourinho right after the West Ham defeat because there is no shortage of candidates, especially with the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte available in the market.

There were rumours that the 55-year-old could be relieved of his duties following a four-match winless run, although the journalist responsible for breaking this false news has since been banned from Old Trafford. We were 2-0 down early on and Newcastle were creating chances.

Eric Bailly is another player facing an uncertain future after he suffered the humiliation of being substituted 18 minutes into the Newcastle game with United trailing 2-0. "I don't believe he will go to England, it isn't his style. There is a lot of wickedness and a clear manhunt", Mourinho said. They are a side United should be beating routinely.

Mourinho has struggled at Old Trafford this season and could well be axed before the campaign is over.

The United boss was recorded on camera appearing to speak in Portuguese as he walked off the Old Trafford pitch following the comeback win. "To some extent, yeah, we are but it was an important result because they had to win after all the reports of Mourinho leaving".

"I think some of the boys, they are not the man that is hunted, I think they are not coping well with it, and the way they start, they were panicking".

But regardless of how stunning the victory was, it doesn't change a thing for United.

"I don't know why we don't always play like this but at the end of the day we won the game and we have to move on".

Mourinho, too, has hope and belief that has been absent in recent weeks, even if he claims there is a media "man hunt" against him.

An insidious atmosphere is ever-growing at United, manifesting in supporters booing following the final whistle of their goalless draw with Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Despite their turnaround on Saturday against Newcastle, all eyes were on Mourinho at full time as he made his way down the tunnel.
