Manchester United break silence over Zidane speculation

By: Matthew Stead

Manchester United have issued a response to speculation that Zinedine Zidane could replace Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho’s position as United manager looks more precarious than ever after Sunday’s 3-2 defeat to Brighton.

The manager and the club have not seen eye to eye for months, with Mourinho’s constant complaints over a lack of funding in the transfer market beginning to grate.

The Portuguese is now the favourite to be the first Premier League manager sacked this season, and we have picked out five candidates to replace him.

Top of that list was Zidane, but any potential interest in the former Real Madrid boss has been dismissed by United.

The Times and The Guardian both quote a ‘senior club source’ – who presumably offered the alias of ‘Ted Goodward’ – as saying: “Why would we discuss Zidane when there is no job available?”

BBC Sport appear to have spoken to the same club source, but offer a slightly different quote: “Why would we discuss Zidane when there is no job?”

Now we don’t know what to think.

All stories report that Mourinho ‘retains the full support’ of the United boardroom, while the Times suggest that Zidane ‘is interested in taking over at Old Trafford if United sack’ the 55-year-old.
