FOOTBALL: BETTING: PUNTERS READY TO BACK MANCHESTER UNITED AFTER VAN GAAL'S DEPARTURE


Bet365 reported seeing a rush of bets on United winning next season's Premier League title as the speculation around Van Gaal's departure intensified over the weekend with the online firm responding by cutting them from 6/1 (7.0) from 7/1 (8.0).

Those quotes have been clipped even further today, with 11/2 (6.50) now the price available on United finishing top of the pile next season following the announcement that Van Gaal would no longer be in charge and rumours intensifying that Mourinho will be the man to take over as punters are clearly willing to put their faith in "the special one" being able to turn around a United team who have struggled to re-establish themselves within the top tier of the Premier League since Ferguson left in 2013.
Mourinho has the highest win percentage of any Premier League boss in history (minimum 15 games) according to Opta's statistics with 66%.
With Chelsea (11/2) and favourites Manchester City (13/8) both bringing in new managers, the scene is already set for another intriguing campaign, especially with Arsenal(6/1) Tottenham (7/1), Liverpool (9/1) and even surprise winners Leicester City (25/1) all in the mix.
