Manchester United officials decided to dismiss Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The dreams of many Manchester United fans who are unhappy with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as head coach have come true. Manchester United has initiated internal preparations to hire a new head coach to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. A Norwegian’s time in the club now depends on discussions with other contenders, not on him. 

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Mancunians’ administration decided to fire Solskjaer. After the defeats to Liverpool (0: 5) and Manchester City (0: 2), the club directors concluded that the change of the coach is necessary sooner or later. It will happen only when the club has reached an agreement with his replacement and worked out the details of potential collaboration. 

The club has won three of their past ten games overall and four of their last six in the Premier League, under Ole Gunnar Solskjair. However, the precise date of Solskjaer’s dismissal is unknown at this point. The Norwegian may continue to train until the end of the season. Those who are looking to find the best sports betting sites visit https://canadian-sports-betting.com to place a bet.

Who will replace Solskjair?

Different sources have identified several candidates to take over as Old Trafford’s coach. Zinedine Zidane, who left Real Madrid after last season and is now without a club, is one of the potential replacements. Despite Manchester’s interest in Zidane, the Frenchman is not keen to return to club football. There is only one explanation for this. According to the Spanish edition AS, Zidane plans to wait until the end of 2022 before taking over as the French national team manager. 

Red Devils’ management is interested in Eric ten Hag (Ajax) and Luis Enrique (Spain), but Leicester City manager Brendan Rogers is top of their list. His contract with the Foxes expires in 2023, which means United will need to agree on a compensation package. 

However, Brendan Rogers has denied reports of a potential Manchester United appointment. According to Sky Sports, he said: “Firstly, it’s really disrespectful for you to ask the question when you have a manager in place, a good manager and a good man, who’s working at the club.” 

He added: “Secondly, I can’t really comment on it because it’s something that’s not real. I’m here as the Leicester City manager. I’m proud to be here, privileged to be here, and fully committed to the players, the club, the ownership. That’s about it really. All the other noise around that is something we can’t control.”
