12 Coaches Would Could Replace Sacked Mourinho

After Manchester United sacked manager Jose Mourinho, here are 12 candidates who could replace the Portuguese coach, including a former Bafana Bafana boss.

Click through the gallery above to see some coaches who have been linked with the United job.

Mourinho was sacked by the Premier League giants on Tuesday morning, with the club also announcing that they will appoint a caretaker manager until the end of the season before a new full-time boss will be appointed.

Many names have since been linked with the Red Devils, with the club's reported main target, Mauricio Pochettino, unlikely to be available immediately, according to the Daily Mirror. The Argentine is in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, and it seems unlikely he will leave the club in the near future.

Former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has also often been linked with United, and he would be available right away. However, it remains to be seen whether or not the Frenchman would be prepared to take over a club with more structural problems than just the management position.

Sky Sports immediately suggested that Michael Carrick would take over as caretaker manager, but later reports have it that the club wants an outsider with knowledge of the club for the role.

Names such as Arsene Wenger – who has previously stated that he would return to management in January – Laurent Blanc and even former Bafana Bafana boss Carlos Queiroz have since been linked with the club.

The Portuguese, though, has been in charge of Iran for the past few years and is about to enter the Asian Cup with his national side.

Antonio Conte and former Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim are free agents and have been linked with the Red Devils, while AFC Bournemouth coach Eddie Howe, Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone and Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri would likely only be approachable after the current campaign.

Ryan Giggs, who took over as interim manager when David Moyes was sacked 2014 and is currently in charge of Wales, has also been linked with the job.
