Report: Former Man Utd Star Wants To Replace Solskjaer

With Zinedine Zidane said to not be interested in the Manchester United job, a former Red Devils star is reportedly keen on taking on the role at Old Trafford.

Michael Carrick is in charge of the Red Devils until the club can find an interim manager to see out the rest of the season.

The Athletic has reported that former United defender Steve Bruce is keen on taking the interim role for the remainder of the campaign.

Bruce, who parted ways with Newcastle United last month, is understood to believe he could help stabilise the dressing room after the team's disappointing form in the Premier League.

However, former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell is not too sure bringing in Bruce would get the desired results for United.

"I think it's a sticky situation really," Campbell told Premier League Productions.

"Do they stick or move? If they move, it's costing a lot of money. To move Ole on and to bring someone in, it's a lot of money.

"I know they've got a lot of money to spend but you've got to look at the books and you've got to look at where they are.

"Maybe, is a Steve Bruce good? For just six months? I don't know. Who knows?

"But it's a real kind of sticky wicket big time, because either they stick or move. Whatever they do, it might be the wrong answer."

Here are a few managers who have already been sacked this season:
