Mourinho set for Real Madrid return



Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho is set to take over from Real Madrid boss, Julen Lopetegui at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Lopetegui is under increasing pressure at Madrid, after seeing a win-less run stretched to five games with defeat at home to Levante on Saturday.

Spanish outlet, El Chiringuito reports that Real Madrid’s Directors have identified Mourinho as their number-one target to replace Lopetegui before the end of the season following the Los Blanco’s poor run of results this campaign.

Mourinho spent three years with the Champions League holders during his time at the Spanish capital.

Portuguese gaffer won the La Liga and the Copa del Rey before returning to England for a second spell with Chelsea.

The 55-year-old has also been struggling with his current club, Manchester United in the English Premier League this term.

Mourinho’s side currently sits at the 10th position on the Premier League log after nine games.

Chelsea 0-2 Man Utd: Herrera, Pogba’s strike may lead to Sarri’s sack




Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba struck first-half goals to dump FA Cup holders Chelsea out of the competition and secure Manchester United a place in the quarter-finals.

It was revenge for United, who lost to Chelsea in last May’s Wembley final under their former boss Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea’s fragile defence was split with crosses from either flank. Paul Pogba supplied the first in the 31st minute after a fast move down the left and Herrera ghosted into the box to nod the ball down past stranded goalkeeper Kepa.

Until that moment a lively game had been evenly poised, with a host of chances at either end. Chelsea’s hopes were crushed just before halftime, however, in a speedy United counter down the right, with Rashford crossing for Pogba to head powerfully home between defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger.

The fifth round defeat piled more pressure on Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri, whose side were hammered 6-0 last week in the Premier League by United’s neighbours Manchester City.

Chants of “sacked in the morning” broke out in the second half as the hosts failed to break United down. There were boos from some home supporters at the final whistle while Solskjaer celebrated with his players in front of the travelling fans.


Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Pedro, Higuain, Hazard

Manchester United XI: Romero, Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, Herrera, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Lukaku, Rashford
