86% Of Punters Back United…Mourinho In For Van Gaal?

Despite their recent poor form 86% of William Hill punters backed a Manchester United victory against Stoke with just 12% backing the Potters to bag three points.


Stoke travel to Manchester United on the 2nd February and it is just 2/5 that Louis van Gaal has left United by then. Should he depart, Jose Mourinho is the 1/2 favourite to take over.


“Jose Mourinho’s name was ringing around the Brittania from Manchester United’s fans and they could gret their wish sooner rather than later,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Louis van Gaal to be Manchester United manager on 2/2/16: 7/4 yes; 2/5 no


Next permanent Manchester United manager: 1/2 Jose Mourinho; 13/8 Ryan Giggs; 10/1 Pep Guardiola; 25/1 Antonio Conte; 33/1 BAR
