Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has received full support from the board, said the BBC. At this stage management is not planning to split with the Portuguese to attract the recent coach of Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane.
Mourinho became the favorite for the first dismissed manager in the Premier League. "United" makes a cautious start of the season and according to the English media the relationship between Portuguese and leaders and footballers is pretty bad.
On Sunday, the Red Devils lost 2: 3 against Brighton. They scored three goals in the first half, just for the third time since the Premier League. In the first round, the record holder of England beat Leicester 2-1, but again not convincing.
Mourinho was very disappointed with the club's transfer policy this summer, after only two new players had arrived at Old Trafford – Brazilian midfielder Fred and Portuguese goalkeeper Diogo Dalot, who is currently injured.
Moreover, the Portuguese specialist said that he was no longer a manager, but only a coach of the team. The tension between him and the club came only half a year after he extended his deal with United in the summer of 2020.
Against the problems of Mourinho there were allegations that Zidane was willing to accept United. The French team recently announced that the Frenchman is ready to inherit the Old Trafford player in the current season or after the end of the season.
Even Jamie Carragher said it. You get Mourinho for a reason! You can not turn around 3 years later and try to impose a different type of structure on it.
Let the manager do his best to find someone who will work as Ed Woodward wants. So simple

"Why should we discuss Zidane if there is no job available for him," said a BBC from a club.
According to former player Gary Neville of Manchester United, management would support Mourinho on the transfer market. In his words it was a big mistake not to attract central defenders, which was the greatest wish of the Portuguese. "You give him a new contract in January, so you always have to support him, and I think Jose should stay until the end of his contract and be supported all the time."
"Do not get me wrong, the club supported José and gave him a lot of money (in the previous transfer windows), but you can not just build three-quarters of the house, you have to do the whole thing, who needs the manager, United, central defenders , & # 39; said Neville.
