Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has left the Premier League club after less than three seasons

Manager Jose Mourinho has left Manchester United after two and a half years in the post, the club announced on Tuesday.

Contrary to earlier reports it seems former United midfielder Michael Carrick, who joined Mourinho’s coaching staff this season, will not be taking the role.

And it has now emerged in the British media that ex-Red Devils defender Laurent Blanc, who previously managed Laurent Blanc, is being lined up to take the role ahead of Saturday’s clash with Cardiff City.

So now Mourinho has gone, the search begins for the fourth permanent Manchester United manager since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

But who could be tempted to take over what is becoming something of a poisoned chalice at Old Trafford?

Three-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane is the current favourite while Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a man many fans have been calling for.
