The shadow of Zinedine Zidane at Old Trafford
After guest victory of the football club from Manchester over Burnley (0:2) the head coach of the grandee of national football was as happy as a child. Prior to this match Jose Mourinho was on the verge of dismissal. But, as the further events have shown, the triumph of the two-time winner of the Champions League with Porto (2004) and Inter Milan (2010) was premature and the fear of the dismissal didn’t end with a long-awaited victory of the MU at Turf Moor.
The matter is that the American bosses of the football club don’t “see” Jose Mourinho as the coach of the team. And therefore Glazers freely negotiate with the three-time winner of the UEFA European Championship Zinedine Zidane who heads Real Madrid. We will remind you that last summer, by mutual agreement of the parties, the French coach has left Estadio Santiago Bernabéu and therefore he has responded to the proposal of the management of Old Trafford with great pleasure. However Zinedine has at once floated one proposal – he will head Man United only if during winter transfer window the team’s line-up will be strengthened by Toni Kroos, Thiago Alcântara, James Rodríguez and Edinson Cavani.
The battle of the football club from Manchester against the main discovery of the season
As a result the head coach of the most titled club in the history of the English football is again on the fence about his situation. The current emergency of one of the most popular innovators of our days is worsened by the fact that on the 15th of September, Saturday the club has to spend a guest match with the hosts of Vicarage Road. That is, the rival of the team of Jose Mourinho is now considered to be an analog of the champion’s Leicester starting line-up 2016 according to the level of the game.
In four last rounds, despite of the status of the match, Watford has won over Brighton (2:0), Burnley (3:1), Crystal Palace (2:1) and even Tottenham (2:1) and today together with Liverpool and Chelsea is heading a champion race.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Watford vs Man United
Watford has appeared in elite league of the English football3 years ago in summer 2015. Since then three calendar meetings of the current rivals have taken place at Vicarage Road which, taking into consideration the status of the guest team have ended with the score (1:2, 3:1 and 2:4). Of course, the favorite of the new meeting of the teams of Javi Gracia and the Jose Mourinho is considered to be Man United: Watford – 4.00, Man United – 1.90.
But this is absolutely different case! The hosts are in an excellent form and in case of the victory can finish Jose Mourinho’s job at Old Trafford. Again there is quite reasonable question – whether MU stars are ready to Zinedine Zidane’s arrival?
