Trouble For Mourinho As Zidane Eyes Manchester United Job

The transfer window may have closed in the Premier League, but there is a rumour that Zinedine Zidane wants to succeed Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager as the former Real Madrid coach considers his return to football.

Trouble For Mourinho As Zidane Eyes Manchester United JobThe France legend, who won three consecutive Champions League trophies at Real Madrid, as well as La Liga in 2017 and two Club World Cups but left on a high this summer, was being lined up as sporting director at Juventus but wants to stay in management and has set his sights on the Premier League and, in particular, Manchester United.

This is coming on the back of complaints from pundits and fans about the negative football being played by the Jose Mourinho led united.

The Frenchman, who stepped down from his position as Real Madrid manager at the end of May – barely five days after his Champions League triumph with Los Blancos against Liverpool in a memorable Kiev final – is, according to French outlet L’Equipe, keen on taking over at Old Trafford.

It would be an almost cruel twist if Zidane was eventually named to replace Mourinho at the United helm considering it was the Portuguese who first encouraged he be brought into the Real Madrid setup in 2010.
