Mourinho odds to be out of the door by Christmas 2018

Mourinho to survive his third season at OT?

Next Manager Betting & Transfers

Will Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho see out the full season with the club? That really seems to be up in the air at the moment and punters have been jumping all over the odds on him to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.

He is the 9/2 second favourite to be the first top-flight boss to find himself a job this season*( betting odds taken from August 9, 2018, at 9:05 PM).

This really all started, well at least came to a head in the summer when he told United fans not to bother showing up to watch them at the International champions cup in the USA and he was vocal about not having made any notable summer signings in the summer transfer market, despite informing the club of players that he wanted.

So he has cut a disgruntled and grumpy figure for most of the preseason and with a lot of his players arriving back late into training because of extra workloads at the 2018 World Cup, preparations have been disrupted for him.

But really that is the same for most of the top clubs in the Premier league who have had to deal with players having had an extra busy summer at the World Cup. United opened the new Premier League season with a 2-1 home win over Leciester on Friday night.

Ladbrokes reported this week that they had to cut the odds of Mourinho leaving from 3/1 to 5/2 to be out of a job by Christmas 2018*( betting odds taken from August 9, 2018, at 9:05 PM).

They are also offering a price of even money on him to be gone from Manchester United by the end of the season. The bookmaker ran a poll recently which returned figures of 74% wanting the Portuguese boss out. There is a trend to all of this because Mourinho has never lasted a full three seasons at any of his jobs.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s been a huge shift in the betting at Man United on Deadline Day, but it’s nothing to do with incoming players.

‚ÄúInstead, Mourinho is now looking more likely than ever to leave the club in the next few months, something which is clearly what the majority of fans want,‚ÄĚ Apati added.
