Analyzing Four Man Utd Next Manager Candidates As Solskjaer Face Sacking

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is one of the favourites to lose his job next in the Premier League.

The Norweigan has come under mounting pressure this season after a poor start.

It has left United 15th in the Premier League after the Red Devils were beaten by Arsenal at the weekend.

United could turn to several alternatives should they decide to dispose of Ole.

Daily Star Sport takes a closer look at who could replace Solskjaer:

Mauricio Pochettino

The overwhelming favourite to make the move to Manchester should Solskjaer bite the bullet.

And a timely appearance on Sky Sports a day after United lost came on Monday Night Football where he said he was looking to get back into management.

Pochettino spent five years at Tottenham, turning them into a force in the Premier League and Europe – but maybe the lack of any silverware may urge Ed Woodward to look elsewhere.

Massimiliano Allegri

If it is trophies Woodward wants, there are not many better current managers out of a job than Allegri on that front.

His Juventus team steamrolled their way to success in Serie A and the Coppa Italia, only failing to win the latter once during his five years in Turin.

One slight on his CV is the lack of a Champions League trophy, though his Juve made the final on two occasions.

Julian Nagelsmann

The up and coming hotshot in the management game, Nagelsmann has been linked with all the top clubs in Europe already.

Making headlines after becoming the manager of Hoffenheim at the age of 28 – his RB Leipzig team are fast, exciting and brimming with young talents.

However, Solskjaer made the German look silly less than a week ago when United thrashed them 5-0.

Brendan Rodgers

Perhaps an outlandish choice due to his Liverpool past but his reputation as an attacking-minded coach who is great with young players ticks all the boxes at Old Trafford.

Currently in charge of Leicester, the Foxes have become a force to be reckoned with under the Northern Irishman.

With United going through a transitional phase, Rodgers could be the ideal man to get them through a sticky period.
