Jose Mourinho has quickly become the popular favorite to be sacked first in the Premier League, after Manchester United dropped all three points on the road at Brighton over the weekend. Suggestions that the third-year trend of Mourinho meltdowns could continue and that he could be replaced by former Real Madrid manager Zinedane Zidane were shot down by United sources, saying, “Why would we discuss Zidane when there is no job?” Mourinho already has a rough start to the season, having called for more reinforcements to the team only for none of his targets to arrive, and beefing with Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba. Former England striker Ian Wright told BBC that there is “blood in the water“ at United, saying “Ed Woodward’s unhappy, the manager’s unhappy, the players are unhappy and the fans are.“ We are only two weeks into the season, so it is surely worth keeping an eye on what happens to Jose and the team.
The French champions will reportedly reject any offer that comes through for Tim Weah, son of George Weah and American International. Weah has reportedly impressed new boss Thomas Tuchel, and is set to feature prominently in the first team after scoring his first goal for the side last week against Monaco. According to reports, Ligue 1 side Strasbourg made an offer for the 18-year-old, but were told any offer will likely be rejected.
Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger stepped away from the North London club after 22 years at the end of last season, to be replaced by Unai Emery. Now, he has revealed that he will make a decision on what to do with his future in September, after it was initially believed that he would announce his choice after the World Cup. There’s a lot of indecisiveness going on, which is understandable for someone who was doing something for 22 years and now is not. It will be interesting to see if Wenger looks at taking the helm of a national team, or looking to another club.
