Ole Gunner Solskjaer's possible replacements: Zidane, Conte, Ten Hag, Potter.....


In the aftermath of Manchester United's 4-2 defeat to Leicester on Saturday, which makes it three Premier League matches without a win, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under huge pressure.

The Red Devils now face a gruelling run of fixtures, facing Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City in their next three EPL league games as well as two Champions League matches with Atalanta that could determine whether the Norwegian keeps his job.

I have been informed that Manchester United have drawn up a list of four coaches who could replace Solskjaer should they decide to part ways with the current boss.

Antonio Conte

The most experienced of the lot is former Chelsea and Inter coach Antonio Conte, who is not currently in a job.

Having worked wonders in the Premier League in the past, and with far superior tactical nous than Solskjaer, Conte makes for an exciting potential coach at Old Trafford.

Zinedine Zidane

Also without a job, Zinedine Zidane is a highly admired figure in the coaching world due to his success with Real Madrid.

He has previously worked with Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo at Los Blancos and is renowned for getting the best out of players.

Erik Ten Hag

The Ajax coach has plenty of admirers around Europe due to his excellent work over the years in the Netherlands.

His attacking philosophy is also a massively appealing factor for United fans, while his relationship with Donny van de Beek would also work in his favour.

Graham Potter

The Englishman's reputation continues to grow for his formidable work with Brighton.

Although his inexperience at a top club may work against him, he is seen as one of the best young British coaches and it is only a matter of time before he gets his shot with a 'Top Six' club.
