Zinedine Zidane believes he’s close to getting the job he wants and is reportedly waiting for Manchester United to approach him.
The Frenchman is said to be the favourite for the position should Jose Mourinho face the sack this season.
The Portuguese manager is under-fire after his United side have started the season poorly, losing twice and winning twice out of their first four fixtures.
It’s believed the Old Trafford hierarchy will continue to show faith in Mourinho but are keeping Zidane in reserve just in case.
The Red Devils return in action next week against in-form Watford and will be searching for another three points to continue climbing the table.
According to Sport 360, the Mirror report that Zinedine has told those close to him he’s waiting for a call from the Red Devils to replace Jose.
Some fans have already gotten excited at the prospect of the former Juventus player managing their club and can’t wait to see him in action.
Others believe Zidane would be a welcome change to Mourinho but think he won’t be able to get better results with the current squad.
For all the criticism levelled at the former Chelsea manager, the majority of supporters agree he wasn’t adequately backed by the board this past summer.
