Mourinho ‘receives phone call from Zidane’ regarding Manchester United job

Zinedine Zidane has reportedly called Jose Mourinho to assure him there is no plot going on behind his back.

French legend Zidane has been heavily linked to take over the Manchester United job from Mourinho – with the Portuguese under massive pressure at Old Trafford.

United have reportedly held initial talks with former Real Madrid chief Zidane, who is currently a free agent.

But according to the Sun, Zidane has phoned Mourinho to ease his fears and reveal that his representatives questioned whether he would like the job if it became available.

They also claim Mourinho has been given a week to turn his misery start to the season around.

The Red Devils have suffered humiliated defeats to Watford , Tottenham and most recently West Ham already this season and face Valencia in the Champions League this week.
