Mourinho Is Favourite To Be First Prem Manager Axed

Jose Mourinho has not enjoyed his pre-season and William Hill make him the 5/1 favourite to be the first manager to leave his job this season. He is also just 6/4 to leave the club before the end of the season.


“Mourinho has spent the entire pre-season moaning and it is reminiscent of when he started to lose the plot at Chelsea,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Should United have a poor start to the season, the pressure will really be on.”
