When Will Mourinho Leave Manchester? 5/1 To Go This Season

Following the announcement (finally) of Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Manchester United on a three year contract, William Hill are predicting when the Portuguese manager will depart the club. With his contract due to expire in 2019, it is 9/4 that is the year of his departure while he is 11/4 to leave in 2018.

He is 5/1 to fail to see out the season at Old Trafford.
