Jose Mourinho Isn't Working Out

Posted by Jay Sanin on 10/25/2016 3:17:08 AM

Touted as the Special One for his past successes, Jose Mourinho has been appointed to manage several big name English Premier League sides in recent seasons, including Manchester United this year. For United, though, despite decent odds to win the title at the start of the season, they have been performing terribly as of late, and the Jose Mourinho experiment is not working out for yet another club.

Same Stubborn Special One

For Jose Mourinho, brilliant ideas are often ruined by a stubborn mentality that isn't willing to adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of the players he has around him at a given time. With Manchester United, that appears to be the case once again, as Mourinho has struggled to fully usher in a new era at the club. Instead of relying on young stars like Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, old guys like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney are still counted on to be major contributors.

At a club where the expectation isn't to win every year, this wouldn't be an issue. At Manchester United, though, this is a disaster. After losing 4-0 to Chelsea over the weekend, live betting odds to win the Premier League see United behind their rivals Manchester City, along with several London clubs and Liverpool, showing that the best days for Manchester United are behind them for as long as Mourinho is in charge.

Premier League Futures Betting

When looking into Premier League futures betting, it is hard to justify backing Manchester United given how poorly they have been playing relative to the other elite clubs in the league. Even in wins they have struggled, such as their victory at Hull City earlier in the season, where they needed a stoppage time goal just to win 1-0 over the newly promoted Tigers.

Given their form so far this season, a team like Tottenham could be a better investment, as they offer generous enough odds to provide a nice payout, but are playing better than just about every team in the league to this point in the season, unlike the inconsistent Arsenal and Manchester City.
