Manchester United’s shortlist of Jose Mourinho successors Increases

Manchester United have now included Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espírito Santo to their list of possible successors for present manager Jose Mourinho, according to Bild.

United, who defeated Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor last weekend to climb up to tenth in the Premier League standings, have made an underwhelming start to the 2018-19 campaign, losing back-to-back matches against Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur in that order.

With rumor arising over the future of the ‘Special One’ at Old Trafford already this term, the publication alleges that the club have added the Wolves boss to a list of candidates that could take over from Mourinho, should he be sacked.

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has already been linked with the job at Man Utd, although the club insists they totally support Mourinho and are not looking to appoint a new coach.

Nuno, 44, was appointed the head manager of Wolves back in May 2017, signing a three-year deal at Molineux.

He led the club to the Championship title last season, finishing nine points clear of runners-up Cardiff City.

Wolves sit just one place and one point behind Manchester in the Premier League table this term after defeating West Ham United 1-0 last time out.
