Club Legend Questions Whether Zidane Is Right For Man Utd

Recent reports suggested that Zinedine Zidane is Manchester United's favoured candidate to replace under-fire boss Jose Mourinho, but a Red Devils legend has now explained why he thinks the Frenchman might not be the right man for the job.

United dropped points against Arsenal on Wednesday, and have now gone four Premier League games without a win.

Following their 2-2 draw with the Gunners this week, United are now eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, and even Mourinho recently claimed that it will be tricky for the club to finish inside the top four.

Many believe Mourinho will be sacked if he does not qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League, and Zidane has been named as one his potential replacements.

However, club legend Paul Scholes is not sure the Frenchman would be the right coach for the situation at Old Trafford.

"Is Zidane the right man, though?" Scholes said on BT Sport.

"He went in to Real Madrid, who had a group of ready-made winners already.

"This is a totally different job; he would have to be rebuild confidence with a squad that isn't quite performing.

"He went to Real Madrid with so many great players, it was still difficult, but this would be a whole rebuilding job."

United's next match is against Fulham at home on Saturday, while they also have what many would consider an "easy" Christmas run, with the club set to face the likes of Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town, Bournemouth and Newcastle United in that period.
