Man Utd Considering Nuno Espirito Santo As Solskjaer Replacement

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s position at Old Trafford continues to look increasingly perilous after their dismal start to the Premier League season.

It is understood that ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is the front-runner for the job and Old Trafford supremo Ed Woodward has reportedly sounded him out.

But former Wolves striker Kevin Doyle has suggested that Nuno – who guided Wolves to promotion in 2018, before two successive 7th placed finishes – should be in the frame for the job.

“I think I'd be a bit worried if I was a Wolves fan at the moment about Nuno,” he told Ladbrokes.

“He's a contender for the Manchester United job, of course he is. Why wouldn't he be?

“Mauricio Pochettino is probably their number one choice but Nuno, definitely, would be up there as well for me.

“His link with [Jorge] Mendes and their ability to sign players, he would be a contender. I'm a Man United fan and I'd have no problem with him being the manager.”

Doyle suggested that Nuno’s touchline demeanour would be a welcome change from the more relaxed one seen by the current United boss.
