You Can Bet On Andy Tate To Become The Next Permanent Manchester United Manager

Despite a summer of moaning about everything, Jose Mourinho doesn't look like leaving Manchester United anytime soon.

However, if things do go wrong in his third season at Old Trafford, we all know there's only one man for the job: Andy Tate.


The die-hard red is as straight-talking as they come and has a history of providing his honest thoughts on all things surrounding his club - memorably making his name with his scathing assessment of David Moyes during that wretched 2012/13 season.

Incredibly, Tate is 500/1 with Paddy Power to become the next permanent manager of United if anyone fancies his chances at taking the hotseat with the Red Devils.

His name is spelt wrong, and there are about 30 more names in front of him with the bookies, including Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino Didier Deschamps, Eddie Howe, Gareth Southgate, Paul Scholes, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, David Moyes and Neil Warnock, but there aren't many fans who can bet on themselves to become the new manager of their team so fair play to Andy.

A genuine match-going fan, he's become hugely recognisable for his hilarious post-match rants to the point where he's been able to interview Mourinho and star in 'The Journey' mode trailer with Alex Hunter.

Andy has worked regularly as a steward at Oldham Athletic but we all knew his true calling is to be United Gaffer, where he would undoubtedly bring that Barca style of play to life.

Forget Zidane or Pochettino, Tate is the ideal man to take United forward if the Mourinho regime falls on its arse.

Sir Alex Ferguson, the most decorated manager in the history of English football, was known for dishing out the infamous "hairdryer treatment" but we're betting Mr Tate would be even more menacing judging by some of the hard-hitting truths he's delivered on Full Time Devils.

If he does usurp qualified football managers to take his dream job, here's hoping he takes that other mad shouting United fan from the United Stand in as his assistant.
