The Red Devils made some big money signings this season in order to help the Norwegian manager who was asking for recruitments. Subsequently, Man United has a squad that can compete at the highest level and can challenge for titles. However, one big missing piece in the Man United squad is a proven manager who can guide them to Silverware after a long drought.
It will be interesting to see how long the Manchester United board can bear the humiliation before they sack Ole. Meanwhile, they are already looking at replacements who can take the charge of the squad and improve the situation at Old Trafford.
Premier League 2021/22 Sack Race: Betting odds of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be sacked and record as manager
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the United job in 2018 when the United board decided to part ways with Jose Mourinho. He was appointed as an interim manager for the remainder of the 2018 season and changed certain things at the club.
He impressed as the manager of the club and had the backing of the board and the fans who were happy at that time to see Ole as the manager. Meanwhile, after the conclusion of the 2018 season, the United board gave him a 3-year contract and was made the permanent manager.

Manchester United won 88 matches from the 158 played under Ole, drawn 35, and lost 35 maintaining a win percentage of 53.70%. However, Man United have not managed a single trophy even after a strong squad which suggests that the manager needs to be changed. Meanwhile, the bookmakers have slashed his odds from 40/1 to 14/1 making him the first manager to be sacked from the Premier League.
Have a look a the list of 3 potential candidates who can replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the new manager of Manchester United
1. Antonio Conte
Antonio Conte is the number 1 candidate to take the job at Old Trafford as the Italian manager is out of employment currently. He is in contact with Arsenal and Barcelona but will happily take the job at Manchester United as the Italian suggested that the other 2 jobs would be very difficult. However, if Manchester United are able to convince the Italian, it would be a great addition to the team who is struggling at the moment under Ole.
2. Zinedine Zidane
Zidane left Real Madrid last year after a disappointing end to the season where Madrid failed to win a single trophy. However, nobody can deny the genius of Zidane who guided the team to 3 consecutive UEFA Champions League titles. Meanwhile, he also has a good relationship with players like Ronaldo and Varane. I think it is time for Zidane to take on a new challenge at Manchester United and then prove himself in the Premier League.
3. Mauricio Pochettino
Mauricio Pochettino could be the final resort of the Man United job if they are not able to convince Conte and Zidane. However, it would be a difficult task as Pochettino has a contract with PSG who will not allow the Argentine to leave as cheaply as they want.
