Man Utd fan makes trailer for club's 'second coming' amid Solskjaer rumours - Antonio Conte features


According to reports, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be given time to turn things around at Manchester United.

The Norwegian is under serious pressure following the humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

The defeat stretched United's winless run in the Premier League to four matches, three of those matches ending in defeat, and the club are eight points behind leaders Chelsea.

Solskjaer's grip on the manager's position is certainly loosening but according to The Guardian, United aren't prepared to sack him just yet.

Who was the most expensive Manchester United signing of 2021?

Solskjaer's potential replacements named

Solskjaer was helped by Sir Alex Ferguson and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, who gave their support to the 48-year-old following Sunday's defeat.

However, there appear to be no certainties beyond Saturday's game against Tottenham Hotspur and United will have drawn up a list of potential replacements.

Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino are just a few of the names mentioned in the media.


Conte, Chelsea's former boss, is currently out of work and his lengthy list of achievements and previous experience in England's top flight makes him one of the best candidates.

The Guardian's report also says the Italian is open to discussing any vacancy and regards United as 'a special club'.

United fan makes trailer video

Of course, Solskjaer has to lose his job first before we can really begin to think about Conte coming in. But one United supporter has created a trailer about his potential arrival - and it's unreal.

Created by content creator @WholeLottaLyes, the video has a Batman: The Dark Knight theme, with clips of United's recent despair overlaid with quotes from The Joker and Two Face, villains in the film.

It then switches, showing some of the potential managers who could replace Solskjaer, before settling on Conte.

'Unreal video... so good'

The video has left fans seriously impressed with @WholeLottaLyes' work.

Indeed, one fan even referred to it as a trailer for the club's second coming.

Solskjaer faces a tough run

So, will Solskjaer lose his job - or will he turn things around in the coming weeks?

Results are all that matter at this point and the former United striker will have hoped for an easier run.

In November, United have league games against Manchester City and Chelsea to look forward to, and they begin December with a trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.
