Mourinho makes Man Utd job decision
Jose Mourinho will reportedly not walk away from his post as Manchester United manager despite their wait for a Premier League win stretching on.
The Red Devils sit eight points adrift of the top four and, having failed to beat Arsenal, Mourinho remains under pressure.
However, the Evening Standard say Mourinho will not be quitting as United manager.
It is said that, because of the compensation he would owed should his head roll, Mourinho is willing to stick it out.
And United themselves are reportedly wary of parting ways before the end of the current campaign.
Zidane job claim
Paul Scholes has questioned if Real Madrid icon Zinedine Zidane is the right man to replace Jose Mourinho as United manager.
He said on BT Sport: “Is Zidane the right man though?
“He went in to Real Madrid who had a group of ready made winners already.
“This is a totally different job he would have to be rebuild confidence with a squad that isn’t quite performing.
“He went to Real Madrid with so many great players, it was still difficult but, this would be a whole rebuilding job.”
Scholes on Herrera
Scholes has also ripped into United midfielder Ander Herrera following his performance against Arsenal.
The Red Devils icon said, when shown footage of the player struggling to pass the ball to Paul Pogba: “You have to question the quality of the player.
“Rio asked the question there when he said: ‘Is Ander Herrera capable of playing that ball to Pogba?’
“Now, he’s in 15-20 yards of space, it’s probably a 30-yard ball – a simple ball – if he’s not good enough to play that ball then he shouldn’t be at this club.”
