Pog of War: Pogba or Mourinho odds-on to leave United this season

The pressure piled back on Mourinho after last night headbutting from the Rams, and the Pogba situation could see him bumped off sooner rather than later...


Paul Pogba is favourite to see off Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, as their working relationship becomes increasingly untenable.

We make it 1/8 that Mourinho departs Old Trafford first, while making it’s 1/3 that at least one of the duo will have left United by the start of next season.

It’s 2/1 that one of the feuding pair will leave by the end of the January transfer window, and just 3/1 that they’ll BOTH have left the club by the kick-off of the 2019/2020 season.

After last night’s cup upset at the hands of Derby, Mourinho is a widespred favourite in the ‘sack race’ market – and we’ve already paid out on him being the next Premier League manager to go.

Zinedine Zidane (2/1) is the favourite to succeed Mourinho.

Our own Special One Paddy Power said: “If I could give Mr Mourinho any advice, it would be that PP always wins. Oh, and to move out of that hotel. Seriously, that room service menu isn’t getting any better.

“Pogba, clearly, is the more valuable asset – though that might just mean they’re more likely to sell him. Personally, I’d flog the Pog, and then the use some of the cash to tell the limelight hog to jog.”
