Manchester United coach under pressure
Following Manchester United’s 4-2 defeat to Leicester on Saturday, which makes it three Premier Leaguematches without a win, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure.
United now face a gruelling run of fixtures, facing Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City in their next three league games as well as two Champions Leaguegames with Atalanta that could determine whether the Norwegian keeps his job.
The Daily Express believe United have drawn up a list of four coaches who could replace Solskjaer should they decide to part ways with the current boss.
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.
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.
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.
