 Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that he does not fear for his job at Old Trafford following an indifferent start to the 2018/19 season as it would take too much to sack him.

The Red Devils currently sit tenth in the Premier League table after four games having taking two wins and two losses apiece. Despite opening their campaign with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City, United fell to consecutive defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur. They recovered to beat Burnley at Turf Moor at the weekend but Mourinho has come in for criticism and is one of the favourite Premier League managers to leave his job.

However, the Portuguese has told he has no worries over his role due to the cost it would take for the hierarchy at Old Trafford to sever ties with him.

Talking to Gazzetta dello Sport, he said: “They say I’m in danger, but I don’t think so.

“If they sent me away, do you have any idea how much money they would have to give me?”

With bookies BetVictor, Mourinho is currently at 7/2 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post. Meanwhile, local rival Pep Guardiola appears to have the most job security, with odds of 100/1available to back the Premier League winner to leave Manchester City.
