Mourinho To United Odds Drift As Laurent Blanc Becomes New Second Favourite For The Job

Following reports linking Jose Mourinho to the PSG job in the summer, William Hill have pushed out his odds of becoming the next Manchester United boss from 1/6 to 1/2 although he remains the favourite to take over. Another big mover in the market is Laurent Blanc who is 3/1 from 12/1 to become the next manager of the Red Devils.Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino and Ryan Giggs are both 5/1.

“Manchester United have publicly stalled on making an announcement both on the future of LVG and any potential replacement and should their indecision continue behind the scenes Mourinho may decide to seek employment elsewhere,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next permanent Manchester United manager: 1/2 Jose Mourinho; 3/1 Laurent Blanc; 5/1 Mauricio Pochettino; 5/1 Ryan Giggs; 25/1 Diego Simeone; 25/1 Luis Enrique; 33/1 Fabio Capello; 33/1 Mark Hughes; 40/1 BAR
