5 Bosses Linked With Man Utd

With rumours suggesting that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be sacked as Manchester United boss, here are five tacticians heavily linked with his position.

Click through the gallery above to see five managers who could replace Solskjaer at the Red Devils, according to various reports.

Amid suggestions the 48-year-old might be relieved of his duties following his side's 2-0 loss to Manchester City at Old Trafford on the weekend, many fans want to know who could step into his role and take the team forward.

Questions have been asked of Solskjaer's tactical knowledge, with many football analysts and pundits alike wondering whether a better coach would get more out of this star-studded Red Devils side.

Finishing second in the Premier League last season was seen as progress for the Norwegian, but, following the team's incredible transfer window at the start of the campaign, expectations have been raised.

Erik ten Hag is a manager whose name has been mentioned in the media when discussing Solskjaer's future, although it is unclear as to whether the Dutch tactician would be prepared to leave Ajax Amsterdam mid-season.

According to The Independent, the 51-year-old could be among the favourites to succeed United's struggling boss but it is also claimed that their interest in him would need to be placed on hold until the end of the season.

Since taking over at Ajax in 2017, he has claimed an impressive five trophies in the Netherlands, and also famously helped guide the side to the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League semi-finals after knocking out the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus in prior rounds.

Meanwhile, on Sunday it was reported by CaughtOffside that Leicester City's Brendan Rodgers is close to communicating his desire to become United's next manager with the 20-time English champions.

While the claim has been rubbished by sources close to the club, Rodgers is said to have admirers on the United board amid suggestions he would be interested in another high-profile job after his three-year spell at Liverpool between 2012 and 2015.

Ralf Rangnick, a legendary figure of German football who was said to have influenced the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel, also appears to be a candidate, as does ex-Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and current Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino.
