Man United’s three managerial options if Glazers ditch Solskjaer

Posted by

Manchester United may be top of the Premier League but that hasn’t stop fans speculating whether or not manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will still be in charge come the new year.

Having returned to Champions League action on Tuesday night, the Red Devils found themselves facing one of the competition’s lowest-ranked sides in Young Boys.

Despite taking an early lead thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo tap-in, full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka saw red just minutes later before the Swiss side came back to eventually win 2-1.

In light of what was not only a hugely disappointing result but also a dire performance, many have already begun predicting which manager may end up succeeding Solskjaer.

The Mirror look at three of the top candidates to replace Solskjaer which include former Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and current Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers.

Conte is understood to be weighing up his options and according to a recent report from Di Marzio, would only considering a project capable of instantly winning – ruling out the possibility of the Italian joining the likes of Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur.

Elsewhere, Zidane hasn’t been in a job since he departed Real Madrid at the end of last season and while some speculate the former midfielder may be holding out to take over the French national team, some fans are now wondering whether or not the Premier League could be the ex-Galactico’s next destination.

Zinedine Zidane has been linked with replacing Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Finally, Rodgers, who is doing a wonderful job at the King Power is certainly destined for big, big things, however, given his previous connections to Liverpool, would the Northern Irishman really be tempted by the Old Trafford dugout?

  1. I don’t like how fellow fans are faulting sancho. This young star just join the team from another club with different style of play. The way and manner ole uses sancho is wrong if sancho must shine then these two things will be expected from ole. First fuse sancho with stars like ronaldo, cavani, and mata so that he can learn from professioners. Secondly sancho should play full time with this stars in order for him to understand their philosophy. Ronaldo had the likes of cantona, beckham, scholes and rooney and he learn and shine. Sancho need to be paired with cr7 and cavani so that he can develop. Utd should sack ole if they want to win trophy this season. Ole shows he is not capable to win anything.

  2. I wonder why Joaqium Louw the ex-Germany national team manager’s name isn’t being thrown in into this debate.very level headed & has a good track record in working with young players.decent club management record & winning World Cup manager.Plays a good brand of football & he can take this team to the next level without rocking the boat as the likes of Conte have a tendency of doing.Ole has gone as far as he can take this team & the danger is he may start reversing the gains he has made if he stays on this job.
