Jose Mourinho cut to 1-4 to get Manchester United job

Jose Mourinho is now as short as 1-4 with leading bookmaker Coral to be the next permanent Manchester United manager following speculation that the former Chelsea man could be set to take over from Louis van Gaal in the summer.

Coral has also cut the odds on Mauricio Pochettino being the next United boss in which he can be backed at 5-1 (from 7-1), while van Gaal’s assistant manager Ryan Giggs is available at 6-1.

“We’ve seen a surge of bets over the last 24 hours on Mourinho becoming the next permanent Manchester United manager so if the betting is anything to go by, it looks like Jose could be set for a return to football at Old Trafford,” said Coral’s John Hill.
