Premier League

Next Manchester United manager: Four replacements if Solskjaer is sacked

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under fire after a humbling loss to Liverpool. With a loss to Liverpool in 2018, Jose Mourinho's reign came to an end. This loss was considerably more humiliating than the last one.

Many supporters believe that the Norwegian tactician must resign as a result of United's dismal form in the Premier League.

So, who would succeed Solskjaer if he were to be fired now or in the coming weeks? Here are four contenders for the job.

Zinedine Zidane

Zidane has won the UEFA Champions League three times. That should be enough to persuade you. The French legend is also immediately available after leaving Real Madrid in the summer.

Zidane has worked with Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane in the Champions League and knows how to get the best out of them. One of the arguments against Zidane is his lack of expertise and familiarity with the Premier League.

Conte Antonio

Antonio Conte is the second free agent on this list, having won the Premier League with Chelsea. Unlike Zidane, Conte has a track record in the Premier League.

Inter Milan's Serie A victory was Conte's most recent triumph as a manager. The Italian has been chastised for being a short-term manager, and he has a dreadful Champions League record.

Erik Ten Haag

Erik Ten Haag, the manager of Ajax, is the man of the moment. Ajax, the Dutchman's team, is one of Europe's best.

Ten Haag's team has a distinct offensive style, as evidenced by their 4-0 win over Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League.

The issue for United is that Ten Haag is unlikely to leave the Dutch giants. If United wants him, they will have to wait until the end of the season, which may not be possible.

Brendan Rodgers

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers could be on his way to bigger and better things after winning the FA Cup with the Foxes last season. Rodgers has assembled a formidable side at Leicester, one that may be capable of much more.

He left Celtic in the midst of last season to join Leicester, and it's probable he'd do the same if United approached him. His lack of European experience, as well as his prior spell as Liverpool manager, could work against him.
