Manchester United fans urge club to appoint Pochettino instead of Zidane

Jose Mourinho remains in charge of Manchester United, but some fans are already plotting his replacement.

The Portuguese coach is under intense scrutiny due to unsavoury results on the pitch and the apparent airing of dirty laundry in public.

United have won just three of their seven Premier League matches this season, which has left them way off the pace in the title race.

As it stands, the Red Devils are nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City and second-placed Liverpool.

On Saturday in the early kickoff, Mourinho’s side were stunned 3-1 by West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Since the final whistle, the manager has dominated conversation and now some fans are discussing who should replace him if a change is made.

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has emerged as an early candidate, but according to The Telegraph, United have dismissed rumours that they have approached the Frenchman about taking over from Mourinho.

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, not many supporters are keen on the idea of Zidane sitting in the Old Trafford hotseat.

In fact, a large number of fans would prefer Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino to be their new manager.
