Just one win in the last five appearances, the team is eighth in the Premier League, is out of the qualifying zone for international competitions and lost 4-1 to Watford on Saturday. All this cocktail resulted in the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as coach of the Manchester United. After the announcement of his dismissal this Sunday, the dance of names has been unleashed to replace him and apparently Cristiano Ronaldo has already given his opinion.
In the official statement, the British club announced that “Michael Carrick will now take over the team for the next games, while the club seeks to appoint an interim manager by the end of the season.” Among the candidates to succeed him, the one of Zinedine Zidane. But the Portuguese gunner would seem to have another favorite for the job.
As revealed Sky Sports: “United are expected to consider Luis Enrique as a possible replacement for Solskjaer and that the former Barcelona coach is interested in talking to the club’s leaders about the position at Old Trafford. Cristiano believes that the Spaniard has the right caliber to make United compete with City, Liverpool and Chelsea. “
The news is a surprise because Luis Enrique is currently working as head of the Spanish national team and next year he will play the World Cup in Qatar. Although his mandate began with some questions about his calls, especially aimed at very young footballers and no player with a present or past at Real Madrid, he has shown a great performance in the Eurocup and finished as the leader of his group in the Qualifiers.
Solskjaer He left after almost three years as a coach of the Red Devils and without having conquered any title. I arrive in December 2018 as interim, after the dismissal of José Mourinho, and won the position as permanent coach in March 2019. The poor results played against him and, despite the fact that last July he had formed his renewal until mid of 2024, he was removed from his position this Sunday. The English club will have to pay you now a compensation valued at just over $ 9 million.
Other surnames that are shuffled at Old Trafford to assume the position are those of the Leicester coach, Brendan Rodgers, and that of Ajax, Erik ten Hag. It should be remembered that this Tuesday against Villarreal, Manchester United will play its continuity in the Champions League. This will be a difficult stop as they will face the team that won the final of the last Europa League.
