Man Utd manager odds
Anyone who watched football before 2006 has seen how great Zidane is on the pitch. He is one of the greatest players ever to play the game. He is one of the very few players to win everything in the world of football. As a player, he has won the FIFA World Cup and the European Cup with his national team and has won domestic leagues, cups and the Champions League with his clubs. He retired from football as a player after the FIFA World Cup 2006.
In November 2010, Zidane was allotted as a special adviser to Real Madrid's first team in response to an appeal made by then-Real Madrid coach José Mourinho for the ex-Real Madrid midfielder to work more closely with the club. In July 2011, the club announced that Zidane would become Real Madrid's new sporting director. In 2013, Zidane was appointed the assistant coach to Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.
Real Madrid hired Rafael Benitez as their manager before the 2015/16 season. But he was sacked in January by the club as the club was struggling. Zidane was instantly appointed as the club's manager and was given a two-and-a-half year deal. Zidane did a fantastic job that season and led the club to win the Champions League. In his next season, Real Madrid won the La Liga and the Champions League. It was the first time ever that a club has won back-to-back Champions League. Real Madrid went on to win the Champions League again in the following season of 2017/18. But five days after their victory in the final against Liverpool, Zidane announced his resignation as Real Madrid manager. The fans and media were very shocked by this news.
Zidane did not join any other club in the summer of 2018 and he is currently unemployed which is why people are speculating which club he will join. The bookmakers are expecting that Manchester United is the next destination for the legendary player and manager. Jose Mourinho is currently managing the club and United have been failing miserably to win games. They are losing points against small teams which are why after 8 matches the club sits 8th on the table. The fans are unhappy with the style of play by their club. United has scored only 13 goals in those 8 matches in the league and has the goal difference of -1. Most importantly, it can be seen that Mourinho is discrediting his own players after most matches. He is directly saying things against his players in media interviews. People are speculating that he has lost the support of the dressing room which is why the club may decide to sack him. Paul Pogba, the most expensive signing for the club has been having problems with Mourinho. The bookies have Zidane as the favorite to replace Mourinho and most United fans are also waiting for that to happen.
