Premier League Transfer Tips: Next Manchester United Manager

Dave Kuzio:

Many of us are still surprised that Ole Gunner Solskjaer is still in a job at Manchester United.

That is not to suggest he is doing a bad job or he is a terrible manager, it’s just Manchester United demand success and they start to panic if they don’t get it immediately.

The Red Devils have failed to win the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson and have not been in the Champions League Final since losing to Barcelona at Wembley Stadium in 2011.

Solskjaer has done a relatively good job since taking over, they are on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League, while they have a good chance of winning the FA Cup – that is if this season ever gets completed.

Pressure is on the Norwegian, because the longer he goes without a trophy then the more perilous his position comes.

Here are the top four contenders to replace him at Old Trafford.

Manchester United Next Manager: Mauricio Pochettino @ 3/10 Paddy Power

Mauricio Pochettino has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur on November 19. It was reported that the Argentine would be back in work within a matter of weeks, but as we head into April, he is still unemployed. At the time, Solskjaer was under a lot of pressure and many believed he would be axed in favour of the former Southampton manager, but a recent run of good form has seen the Red Devils stick with the Norwegian. The longer Poch is out of work, the more he will be linked with the United job.

Manchester United Next Manager: Massimiliano Allegri @ 5/1 Paddy Power

Massimiliano Allegri has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past, could he be the next man in charge of Manchester United? Allegri has been out or work since leaving Juventus in April 2019. During his time at Juve he won five Serie A league titles, four Coppa Italia wins, two Supercoppa Italiana final wins as finished runners-up in the Champions League twice. He would be a great choice for Manchester United, a no-nonsense manager who knows how to win. Would he come to England though?

Manchester United Next Manager: Julian Nagelsmann @ 20/1 Paddy Power

RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann is only 32 years of age and when he was 28, he was named manager of 1899 Hoffenheim and was the youngest manager in the history of the German Bundesliga. He took over at RB Leipzig in June 2019 and he has since become the youngest manager to win a UEFA Champions League knockout tie when his side defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 on aggregate. He will end up being a top manager, but only time will tell if we ever see him in the Premier League.

Manchester United Next Manager: Ralf Rangnick @ 25/1 Paddy Power

Ralf Rangnick is not currently in a managerial role. He quit RB Leipzig at the end of the 2018-19 season to take a role as the head of sport and development soccer at Red Bull, where he focusses on New Yorks Red Bulls, Red Bull Brasil and Leipzig. Whether Manchester United would go for someone not having a lot of managerial experience in the top leagues, I’m not sure. Aart from Leipzig, he has managed fellow Bundesliga clubs VfB Stuttgart, Hannover 96, Schalke 04, 1889 Hoffenheim.
