Jose Mourinho The Favourite To Be The Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked

Jose Mourinho is miserable. Who'd have thought it?

The Manchester United manager has spent the last ten days sulking around the United States of America like a toddler without his dummy, and the bookmakers have taken note.

The former Chelsea manager is now the 5/1 favourite to be the next Premier League Manager to leave his job in the wake of a series of angry interviews.

This feels like a film we have seen before from one of the most successful Managers in the Premier League era. Mourinho has fallen out of love with a number of clubs during the last few years and it is starting to feel like his tenure at Manchester United is already under pressure.

Mourinho has chastised his young United squad during an angry rant over the weekend in the wake of their 4-1 spanking at the hands of Liverpool. He dismissed the result and the effort showed by some of his younger players in a move which is hardly liklely to inspire a dressing room.

It is true to say that United are looking thin on the ground due to a number of their star players reaching the latter stages of the World Cup but even taking that into account, some of the performances have been worrying.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have both been on the wrong end of the Mourinho tongue in public recently with the whole club seemingly having a bad atmosphere at the moment. Martial went home to see the birth of his child which appears to have aggravated the Manager and his time in Manchester is likely to come to an end.

Reports in a number of newspapers are suggesting that the relationship between Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward is at an all-time low. The former Real Madrid manager is clearly frustrated with the way the transfer business has been handled so far this summer and he is demanding two more players before the window closes.

There is certainly a dark cloud hanging over Old Trafford at the moment and the start of the season is likely to be key for the Manager.

A quick start with the star players back in the squad and firing, and we might even see a smile from Mourinho. Might.

The football has been less than inspiring though since The Special One rocked up at the club and if one or two points are dropped in August and September, the pressure and rumour mill will crank up another notch.
