Manchester United do not have a permanent head coach after all the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. And it is only November.
That is the problem that the Red Devils find themselves in as they look to save a season that has reached its worst. Failing to qualify for the Champions League and finishing in the top four in the Premier League could be a failure as the club continues to stumble since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The club has volunteered until the summer to name a permanent successor, announcing that it is looking forward to taking over until the end of the season. Perhaps, Man United has an inside list of candidates for next summer. Meanwhile, names like former Newcastle boss Steve Bruce and former France coach Laurent Blanc, a former United player, are two who have appeared on the post for some time with an old-fashioned approach that seems feasible. Blanc is Al Rayyan’s coach in the Qatar Stars League and the season ends in March 2022.
When it comes to regular employment, summer offers a number of options, though according to some reports, this time can exceed one or two major names. Here are the challenges and the latest updates of the most talked about.
While Solksjaer is still on the job, reports suggest he is a free agent and Real Madrid head coach. he was not interested. His well-known sporting career makes him instantly confident and has coached Cristiano Ronaldo in the past, making him the best of the Madrid star-studded team. His idea is that he can do the same for United.
But even there are he says he is working on English, it seems that Zidane is keeping an eye on other projects. However, they can be an important domino in finding a manager who looks very attractive (see below).
There is no doubt who prefers journalists to Man United’s regular career based on a number of reports in England. The issue between the speculation has grown rapidly from “Man United wants” to “Pochettino wants the job and could move out in December.”
But he is currently leading one of the most expensive teams in the world, and PSG’s career was exactly the opportunity Pochettino had been striving for since he led Tottenham Hotspur to the Champions League final with a limited budget. With players like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi together, Pochettino has a team that can offer the first Champions League title to PSG.
For a club that allegedly refused $ 200 million from Real Madrid to leave Mbappe soon, PSG will not let Pochettino go. Similar to his refusal to leave the club with Mbappe last summer, releasing Pochettino to move to Man United could tarnish his reputation as one of the rising tide of European football.
But there is one clear sign that Pochettino can leave early: While PSG look to be on the verge of winning the French Ligue 1 title – with 11 points in the Ligue 1 standings after 14 games – and the Champions League are crucial. . The shocking failure to leave the team could see the team make a change for managers during the winter break in December. And Frenchman Zidane could be made to replace Pochettino.
#mufc Poch has the opportunity to work for United and could try to use the winter break in France to earn him a salary from PSG. Tuchel was replaced by Poch during the off-season last season and is considered a good midfield replacement. https://t.co/8XMFdkghwm

EXPERIENCE: Sky Sports News has been told that Mauricio Pochettino wants to be manager #MUFC
– Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) November 22, 2021
There is no exaggeration to say that Pochettino is looking for #MUFC work and has always been. Yet they deny the faith they allow him to cross their fingers to agree #PSG while even in the background it was clear that Ole was shaking.

But the end of the season still seems like a very possible solution:
There is speculation in Spain – as well as in Madrid – that things could go well so that Pochettino leaves PSG at the end of the season for United and Zidane goes there.https://t.co/vbbXOV7AAH

Leicester City manager could be at the top of the list for next summer if Pochettino do well at PSG in the coming months and become an unlikely target for Man United.
Rodgers had a strong voice against Man United’s links while Solskjaer was still on the helm. You can not blame him: He has a stable position with a successful team, strong relationships with the owners, and a lot of things he has put in place in recent years.
After two consecutive fifth places in the Premier League, are there any changes that could change in the next six months? It is hard to imagine, although reports do continue:
One place has already offered him a Man United job:
Man Utd boss Brendan Rodgers hailed Cristiano Ronaldo as a first-team player because he ‘does not fit the profile’.https://t.co/GgpB6FZhyX

Erik ten Hag
If the controversy is that Man United need to get a new identity, then the manager of Ajax Amsterdam can make sense. And the idea that the Red Devils team is passionate about its work.
If Man United wait until the summer, then the election of Ten Hag would be worth it. The 2021-22 season could be seen as the culmination of his career with Ajax, where he has been a manager since 2017. The team flies in the UEFA Champions League with four wins in four games and is top of the Eredivisie. table in solid speed with some Dutch power.

Another leader who could be a manager with a clear football mindset that he can offer to the club is a former Red Bull football empire strategist. After successfully overseeing the growth of the Red Bull in a number of clubs around the world, he has remained in the forefront as manager of sport and development at the Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow.
For weeks, the idea that Rangnick could be a temporary coach, made his last move to RB Leipzig in 2019, and changed to a Manchester United player. But with the hiring of John Murtough (football director) and Darren Fletcher (technical director) in March, it is hard to see how Rangnick can fit in with the plan.

“The sponsors and those close to the group feel that a knowledgeable person with a long history can be good at leading #MUFC at a critical time. “
“Ralf Rangnick, 63, is capable of having it.”

These Man United managers?
Sevilla coach Julien Lopetegui says he has a contract issue that could put him in the game, but called every link in Man United a “nonsense” operation.
National team managers like Roberto Martinez (Belgium) and Luis Enrique (Spain) cannot expect to relinquish their responsibilities after leading their teams to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar next November.
And without a permanent sign – and caregiver for a while – it’s hard to see Michael Carrick, who served as Solskjaer’s assistant, promoting another job.
Then again, according to one UK sportsbook and series of aspiring permanent managers (below), Carrick has a third chance to establish a gig. Zinedine Zidane left the top of the list and left the position to Pochettino, who is on the rise with each report. Zidane went from a score of 3.1 to 11.0
|Brendan Rodgers||Leicester City||5.0|
|Michael Carrick||Man United (time)||6.5|
|Erik ten Hag||Ajax||8.0|
|Zinedine Zidane||freedom of expression||11.0|
|Laurent Blanc||Al Rayyan||13|
|Ralf Rangnick||Lokomotiv Moscow||13|
|Steve Bruce||freedom of expression||17|
