Manchester United dismissed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a poor stint of results and have appointed Michael Carrick as the caretaker manager. Meanwhile, they are in the market hunting for a new manager and have narrowed down 5 options who can take the job.
United are going through tough times and are desperately trying to turn their fortunes around. However, it might not be a simple task to convince any top manager to accept the difficult job at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, Michael Carrick has taken over the role of caretaker manager and it will be interesting to see how he manages the team.
Five Names Who Could Join Manchester United As The New Manager And Their Betting Odds
1. Mauricio Pochettino
Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino is currently contracted with PSG but will be open to a return to the Premier League. PSG might be paying him a lot of money but the football in the French League is boring.
Pochettino would be desperate for the quick and high-intensity football of the Premier League and would be hoping that Manchester United can strike a deal with the Parisians. He waited for the offer of Manchester United when he was sacked by Spurs but, Ed Woodward put his faith in Ole and trusted him with the command of the team.
Betting Odds- (14/1)
2. Zinadine Zidane
French professional football manager Zinadine Zidane is available right now and if Manchester United can convince him, then maybe they can turn these unfortunate events in their favor. However, convincing Zidane for the Manchester United job would be a difficult task as the Frenchman is aware of the high-intensity football of the Premier League. Therefore, if United could strike a deal with PSG then Zidane would accept the job at PSG.
3. Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers is one of the most intelligent managers in the Premier League and it would be a bargain for Man United. He is currently tied with Leicester City and guided the Foxes to FA Cup glory last season edging-out Chelsea in the final. Rodgers has a lot of experience in the Premier League and could be a good option for the Red Devils.
Betting Odds- (5/2)
4. Eric Tan Haag
Eric Tan Haag has signed a contract extension with Ajax but could be available if Manchester United pays the compensation. He would be the perfect manager for Man United because of his composed attitude and superior tactical knowledge. Tan Haag turned his Ajax side into an absolute monster who triumphed over Real Madrid and Juventus in the 2019 UEFA Champions League.
Betting Odds- (11/1)
5. Marcelo Bielsa
Argentine football manager Marcelo Bielsa is one of the most exciting managers in the Premier League. The Argentine has been one of the surprise packages of last season and is one of the top candidates. He likes his team to play entertaining football and allows his players to be expressive on the field. Meanwhile, it will be a difficult task to lure him away from Leeds United.
Betting Odds- (6/1)
