JOSE MOURINHO is resigned to his fate at Manchester United — after getting a call from Zinedine Zidane.
French World Cup winner Zidane is hot favourite to replace under-fire Mourinho as Old Trafford manager.
But he was so worried Mourinho may think he was plotting behind his back that he got in touch.
Former Real Madrid boss Zizou revealed all that happened was his representatives asked if he would be interested in the job.
Boss Mourinho has a week to save his job and convince chief Ed Woodward he can end the current crisis.
