Jose Mourinho the favourite to get the boot after Mark Hughes finally falls

Jose Mourinho the favourite to get the boot after Mark Hughes finally falls.

READ MORE: Mark Hughes the latest boss to get the boot, but who will replace him at Southampton? 

Jose Mourinho is the new favourite in the Premier League sack race with 888sport, with the Manchester United boss just 5/4 to be the next manager to leave his club.

After Mark Hughes was fired by Southampton on Monday, Mourinho has moved to the head of the betting, with the Portuguese seemingly on borrowed time at Old Trafford. 

United have endured a miserable start to the season, and sit 16 points behind table-topping Manchester City, and eight points off Arsenal in fourth. 

There have been a lot of reports of apparent unrest in the camp, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial featuring heavily in this, while an apparent failure to sign key players has seen Mourinho’s relationship with the board strained further.

888sport make Mourinho the 5/4 favourite, ahead of Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo at 4/1, and Newcastle’s Rafa Benitez at 6/1. 

The online bookmaker have also installed former RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl as the 1/2 favourite to take over from Hughes as Southampton manager, with the Austrian seemingly nailed on to be named the new Saints boss.

“Mark Hughes and Jose Mourinho were in opposite dugouts on Saturday, but after the Welshman was fired this morning, the same fate may soon fall on Mourinho,” an 888sport spokesman told Bettingpro. 

“We now make Mourinho the new favourite to be the next manager to lose his job – and with a tricky match against Arsenal on Wednesday, it could be days rather than weeks until that happens.”
