Zinedine Zidane: Man Utd respond to manager claims with Frenchman interested




Jose Mourinho is under mounting pressure at Old Trafford over feuds with certain players and his team’s poor performances, as well as disappointing results.

The Red Devils today suffered their third defeat in seven Premier League games this season.

Manuel Pellegrini’s improving West Ham won 3-1 at the London Stadium.

And it leaves United nine points behind reigning champions Manchester City and title rivals Liverpool already.

Ex-Real Madrid boss Zidane is out of work and is said to be keen on the United job if Mourinho were to vacate the position.

The club have stood by the Portuguese amid the ongoing difficulties on and off the pitch, though.

And The Telegraph say the latest claims on Zidane being approached have been quashed by senior sources at United.

Pressure is intensifying on Mourinho but there has been no move for free agent Zidane.

“Ed Woodward is desperate to avoid another managerial casualty this season”

Reports have suggested the Frenchman is learning English.

United, though, have rubbished claims they are chasing Zidane to become their next manager.

Ed Woodward is desperate to avoid another managerial casualty this season, The Telegraph add.

The Red Devils are desperate for some stability at the top level once again, having let go David Moyes and Louis van Gaal since Sir Alex Ferguson’s 2013 retirement.

There are growing doubts whether Mourinho can recover the situation at Old Trafford.

The manager has strained relationships with several of his players, including Eric Bailly after the centre-half fell down the pecking order.

Up next for Mourinho’s Manchester United is a visit from Valencia in their second Champions League group game on Tuesday.

Newcastle then go to Old Trafford next Saturday in the Premier League before the international break.
