Last night, Liverpool humiliated Manchester United as they defeated them by 5-0, and that too at Old Trafford stadium. It was one of the most embarrassing defeats that Man United has ever faced. After the match, a lot of questions were raised on the club’s current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Now, according to the latest report by Fabrizio Romano, the board is thinking about the future of Ole Gunnar with the club in the aftereffect of the humiliating loss against Liverpool.
After the match, the words came out that Manchester United Board has a secret meeting to decide the future of Gunnar. However, that wasn’t true as the board is currently taking its time to make a decision. The official Twitter account of Manchester United also cleared it by posting a tweet. The caption of this tweet reads Ole is setting his sights on United’s next three games in a bid to fight back. Therefore, now it is likely that MUFC will take a decision only after the next three games of the club. Manchester United’s next three matches are against Tottenham, Atlanta, and Manchester City. So, if Gunnar wants to maintain his position as the manager of this club, the team has to perform extraordinarily well in these next three matches.
It seems like there are no plans to sack Gunnar immediately. The club even backed him publicly after the last night’s performance of the team. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Manchester United club is split into two parts about whether Gunnar should stay or not. As a result, the names of other top managers also began to pop out who are available now. These names are Antonio Conte, Erik Ten Hag, Luis Enrique, and others.
Top Contenders To Be The Next Manager Of Manchester United
Antonio Conte recently left Inter Milan and is a free agent now. He also had discussions with Tottenham about replacing Jose Mourinho. If Ole Gunnar leaves the club in the future, then Antonio Conte will be the top contender to replace him as the manager of Manchester United.
Conte had some disputes with Chelsea as he failed to sign Romelu Lukaku. It happened after the team’s Premiere League Title win in 2017. In the last season, Conte was the one who led Inter Milan to its first title in the last 11 years. However, after that, he decided to leave by mutual consent following a dispute with the club’s owners. Conte’s CV is quite impressive. But Luis Enrique is also an intriguing name who can join Manchester United after the departure of Ole Gunnar.
