Zinedine Zidane is the favourite to become the next permanent Manchester United manager after Jose Mourinho was axed this morning.
The Frenchman is currently out of work following his successful spell at Real Madrid that yielded three Champions League titles and is currently the 10/11 favourite to replace Mourinho on a long-term basis.
Mourinho was finally relieved of his duties after an abysmal start of the season with the club now expected to name a caretaker manager until the end of the season.
The Special One,Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Man Utd after poor run to the season.
The Red Devils were humbled by Liverpool on Sunday as they were beaten 3-1 by their fiercest rivals at Anfield.
And United have decided that result was the final straw and have parted company with the Portuguese.
A club statement read: “Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect.
“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”
