EPL winner linked with Man Utd job

Premier League-winning manager emerges as possible Mourinho replacement

October 2, 2018 By Ali M.
Rumors continue to link the Special One with an Old Trafford exit after their unimpressive start to the season.

With Jose Mourinho's future at Man United looking grimmer by the day, speculation of his sacking continues to grow. With the club picking up only 10 points from their opening seven games and on-going rifts with the squad undermining his command, everything points to his exit.

Zinedine Zidane has been tipped as a candidate to replace the Special One, but a new name has emerged as a possible successor to the Portuguese boss. That man is Antonio Conte.

The Italian is no stranger to the Premier League. He became an instant success in England, winning the title in his debut season with Chelsea.

However, his second season at Stamford Bridge did not go according to plan, as disputes with the board and a fifth-placed finish earned him the ax. He is currently a free agent, one that is reportedly attracting attention from the Red Devils.

This is according to Corriere dello Sport. The Italian news outlet claims that the three-time Serie A-winning tactician has emerged as a candidate to replace the under-pressure Mourinho.

Furthermore, CdS speculates that Conte could be reunited with Beppe Marotta after announcing his decision to step down as the CEO of Juventus. This means executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward might solely focus on the commercial side of things, as the club is on the lookout for a director of football.

Whether Mourinho will be headed for the door or not is mere speculation. Despite falling out with the likes of Pogba, Sanchez, and Valencia, Mourinho insisted in a recent press conference that his job is safe.

Things would only get worse for the 55-year-old if their win-less run continues. Their next opponent is Valencia in the Champions League. Anything but a win will heap more pressure on the Special One.
