Mourinho tops next prem league manager to be sacked list

Jose Mourinho has received 50 per cent of all bets on the next Premier League manager to be sacked.

The Special One is the current favourite in the sack race as punters are lumping on the Manchester United boss.

Mourinho’s position at Old Trafford came under serious threat after he guided the Red Devils to their worst start in 25 years.

United lost two of their opening three games before turning things around with a win away to Burnley ahead of the international break.

Rafa Benitez is the second most popular pick as his feud with the Newcastle board rumbles on.

The Spaniard had his hands tied during the summer transfer window and it is believed he could be the first departure in the top flight.

Claude Puel, Neil Warnock and Mark Hughes make up the top five of the most-backed bosses to be sacked.

Meanwhile Pep Guardiola and Wolves’ Nuno Espirito are yet to have a single penny staked on them in the sack race.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Favourite in the sack race and the subject of one in two bets – it’s hard to see Jose lasting much longer at Old Trafford.”
