Here’s who will replace Solskjaer at Man Utd!

Manchester United have decided on the candidates who can replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as head coach of the team.

After a lot of chances and constant talk of dismissal, United seem to have made up their minds to sack Solskjaer. The club's management even gave a list of three main contenders who should replace the Norwegian in the near future.

As it became known from journalist Christian Falk, Zinedine Zidane told the Manchester United bosses that he was not yet ready to return to work. Therefore, the Frenchman will not be on this list. But it includes Luis Enrique, Erik ten Hag and Brendan Rogers.

Erik ten Hag has made remarkable progress at Ajax during the four years he has been leading the Amsterdam side. After making a sensational run to the Champions League semi-finals and selling half of the first squad, he has proven he can handle things. His team shares first place in the league with PSV and has secured advancement from the Champions League group with a 100% win rate. But as the coach himself said, he is not yet interested in changing jobs, especially in the middle of the season, and he will try to achieve the maximum with his guys.

Luis Enrique is adored in Spain. The coach has qualified from the first place in the qualification for the World Cup with one defeat and one draw with six victories. But after the semi-finals of Euro 2020 and the final of the Nations League, he clearly still wants to prove to everyone that he is capable of more. Enrique has chances and prospects for this.

Therefore, Brendan Rogers remains the most obvious option for Manchester United. The former head coach of Liverpool has been at Leicester since 2019. For two seasons in a row, he managed to occupy the fifth line and almost got into the Champions League. Now the team's results have worsened, the Foxes are already 12th in the Premier League, so the Brit's departure can be beneficial to both the club and the coach himself.

Another thing is that we don't really believe in Rogers as a coach for a top club, which Manchester United are considered to be. Seven years ago, he failed that challenge at Liverpool and had one good season with Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge and Gerrard. After that there was a failure in the transfer market and dismissal from Liverpool. We would like to believe that during this time Brendan gained experience, but it seems to me that this is another manager who is very good for mid-level clubs, but he will not be able to find a common ground with the stars and manage a top team.
