Manchester United: Before His Dismissal, This is What Zinedine Zidane told Mourinho

José Mourinho was fired from the technical coaching of Manchester United last Tuesday. But before his dismissal, Zinedine Zidane, strongly anticipated to replace him, would have called him to reassure him that no plot was being waged against the Portuguese.

The name of Zinedine Zidane circulated strongly behind the scenes of Manchester United as probable replacement of Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese had seen his chances to remain at the helm of the Red Devils technical coaching decline after the disappointment against Liverpool (1-3) in the league.


But the former coach of Real Madrid wanted to raise any ambiguity on a probable plot that he would prepare with the leaders Mancuniens.

According to The Sun, Zinedine Zidane would have called José Mourinho to reassure him about it. The Frenchman directly called the Portuguese so that he does not think he is working against him behind his back. José Mourinho was convinced that the Manchester United management was plotting against him with Zinedine Zidane.

The latter, wanting to enlighten things, told The Special One, “that his representatives would have just been polled (…), nothing more” writes BFM TV which reports the information.

It is unclear whether Zizou’s appeal had the desired effect on his interlocutor. The only certainty, Mourinho is no longer the coach of the Red Devils. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, former club legend, has replaced him at this post.
