After working for the Real Madrid youth academy, Zinedine Zidane made his coaching debut for a top-tier team as Real Madrid sacked Rafa Benitez midway through the season in 2015-16.

According to The Sun, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is a big admirer of Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves.

The former United star criticised the Portuguese tactics and saying he (Cantona) would restore Manchester United's attacking style of football if he was to replace the manager.

Wolverhampton Wanderers star Ruben Neves is reportedly on the radar of Manchester United and Manchester City.

City and United are massive clubs, and working with Pep Guardiola or Mourinho could be too tempting for the 21-year-old to resist.

Mourinho is under pressure after a frustrating summer in the transfer market followed by a poor start to the season - United have lost two of their first four games.

Mourinho was on hand to watch England vs. Spain and while the worldwide break usually provides a bit of a respite for club managers and players, Mourinho was awarded no such luxury thanks to a few fateful steps at Wembley.

"He should be there, but he is doing magic with that other club".

"It would be great for the fans, like it was with Alex Ferguson - he allowed players to be creative, treated them as individuals".

"I would like to coach. Then we would play creative football again", he added. "A good man, a good leader".
