Premier League

Should Man United's current coach be sacked, here are some photos of potential replacements

We bring you the latest from the English Premier League's biggest club, Manchester United. According to sources, the club is considering sacking its current manager, Ole, because the team isn't performing as well as it should given the skill and experience of its roster.

According to new reports, Antonio Conte is interested in taking over as Manchester United manager if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fired.

Following the Red Devils' 5-0 humiliation to Liverpool in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday, questions about Solskjaer's job and future have been raised, maybe unexpectedly.

Since the stunning result, the Norwegian has been under immense strain, and he acknowledged after the game that he is currently feeling worse than he has since taking over the club from Jose Mourinho in 2018, first as a caretaker and then as a permanent manager.

Former Juventus, Chelsea, and Inter Milan manager Conte, according to Italian football journalist Gianluigi Longari of Sport Italia, is interested in succeeding Solskjaer in Manchester if the English club's board decides to terminate the ex-contract. striker's

It's unclear whether the Serie A champion for 2020/21 will accept the job during the season, with transfer analyst Fabrizio Romano recently saying that Conte might prefer a new role only at the end of the season.

Gary Neville, a former United right-back and captain, believes that selecting Conte would be a mistake, claiming that the 52-year-old is unsuitable despite his achievements.

"They're not going to hire a hitman again. A two-year hitman, who comes in and accomplishes a job "'I told Sky Sports,' he said.

"Conte is available, but I wouldn't want to bring him to United. I wouldn't bring him here right now. Antonio Conte is not a good fit for Manchester United, in my opinion. He's not a good fit for me.

"I could be mistaken; they could bring him here tomorrow, and I'd rally behind him. We've seen a coach with a distinct style, such as Louis van Gaal, fail to succeed here.I'm not saying there isn't a manager out there who can succeed at Manchester United."

United has also been linked with Zinedine Zidane, who is also thought to be on the radars of newly-rich Newcastle United and Paris Saint-Germain.
