JOSE MOURINHO is 2/1 to leave Manchester United before Christmas, according to bookies.

And those who think there could be an even swifter fall out from the Reds’ latest setback can take 33/1 he walks away before the West Ham game on Saturday, although the more likely outcome looks to be a departure before the end of the season at even money.

As far as the shortlist to replace him goes, Zinedine Zidane tops the betting at 6/4 ahead of Mauricio Pochettino at 6/1 and Antonio Conte at 25/1.

Georgia Wilson of SportNation.Bet said: “It doesn’t look like Mourinho can afford another bad result and defeat against West Ham on Saturday would give us no choice but to slash the odds of him getting the boot before Christmas. As for a replacement, the betting firmly suggests Zidane will be the man to ride to the rescue at Old Trafford.”
