Bookmaker pays out on Jose Mourinho being sacked as Manchester United manager

The France global is keen to move on from Manchester United due to a lack of playing time, but the Red Devils have so far rejected all approaches for him. Yes, Jose, that is an indisputable fact, but none of those were at the helm of United, and the most recent triumph, with Chelsea in 2014-15, was three years ago.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho retains the support of the club's board, with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward confident the coach can help his team recover from a miserable start to the season, sources have told ESPN FC.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their season opener at Old Trafford to make a positive start. In the first-half, zero corners, zero lateral free-kicks, they had one corner, they score a goal. "I just hope that the guys who go on holiday take care of themselves a little", the Portuguese said when trying to send a message, while his relationship with Paul Pogba has also become strained.

As a Tottenham Hotspur fan, it was certainly no chore to see Spurs dismantle Manchester United with three unanswered goals in the one-sided second half of Monday night's Premier League clash. That also means three Premiership [titles] and I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together.

"He is a fantastic player but he has to do it for himself", added the 32-year-old Rooney, who joined DC United from Everton in the summer and has made a promising start to his Major League Soccer career".

This is just the second season in Premier League history that United has lost more than one of its opening three matches.

The former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss is yet to start with the same defence in any two games this campaign, with only left-back Luke Shaw appearing in all three matches.

Mourinho added: "I don't think it's normal for a team to lose at home and (the fans) react like that".

"I gave a list of five players who interest me to the club months ago but none have came in", Mourinho said during the summer.

"It was not easy for him last season because he came in the middle of the season, the team was already settled but he has shown how strong he is in his head".

It was the 23-year-old's first Premier League start against a top-six side since September 2016 and his early-season form is likely to result in a call-up to Gareth Southgate's England squad on Thursday. After the goal we had the high press, we were playing it quicker, moving in behind and punished them when we needed to.
