Manchester United and Premier League 'not appealing' to Zinedine Zidane

The agent of Zinedine Zidane has firmly denied suggestions that his client is in line to replace Jose Mourinho as Manchester United boss.

Sure, it started off well with a swift return to the Champions League by way of winning a silver pot with slightly more prestige than the Carabao Cup, yet after a torrid start to the 2018/19 Premier League campaign, the Mourinho-United liaison has become an unsalvageable mess.

"The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone", said Mourinho.

Despite his reputation, Mourinho remains a popular and respected figure amongst his peers and Jokanovic insisted that if he will never speak a word against the Manchester United manager.

"I am 55 years old and in spite of this first time I see in football a manhunt, I am 55, I am mature, I can cope with it and live with it", he added.

But thanks to a big turn on Saturday when United came back from 2-0 down to beat Newcastle 3-2, Jose Mourinho has relieved himself of some pressure during the worldwide break.


This was only the second home win in six for Mourinho's men.

"At half-time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team". If I could tell them please don't do it I would say that. Things haven't improved since, with Mourinho managing to fall out with his players, most notably Pogba and Sanchez but also captain Antonio Valencia, while telling everyone who would listen that none of this is his fault.

"As a team, we did so well", said Benitez. One wonders what his reaction would have been had United lost. "I don't see how one good 45 minutes can get rid of all the huge issues that are quite clearly there".

While the final 25 minutes saw United at their best, everything that came before was them at their worst.

"Mourinho took Eric Bailly off after just 19 minutes and moved a midfielder, Scott McTominay, back to centre-half".
