Eddie Howe is who is being touted by former Red Devil John Curtis to be considered by Manchester United to appoint as their next permanent manager.
United are shopping for a new coach having sacked Jose Mourinho following their worst ever start to a Premier League season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a caretaker manager at Old Trafford and has led the team to six wins on the spin, putting him in the frame for the full-time job.
Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane are also in Manchester United's radar having impressed at Tottenham and Real Madrid respectively.
“Why are United not looking at Eddie Howe or someone who has done an amazing job in the Premier League with few resources?
“I think they have to give these guys the chance and given the squad that is already in places at Manchester United and the resources they have to fill in any gaps, it could work.
“I think Eddie Howe or a young British manager in the Championship or even League One who is doing well, would say: ‘Managing Manchester United is an easy job. Come and do the job I’m doing at Bournemouth with very little resources with players who aren’t as confident and don’t have the skills and the techniques that you guys have.’
“They need someone who is going to stay there for a long time and understands the club and drives the club.”
While Solskjaer has been looked at as an option to lead United beyond the end of the season, Paul Ince is not swayed.
“Although Man United got the win against Tottenham, the way Mauricio Pochettino had his team playing in the second half is exactly how United should be playing all the time,” Ince said.
Solskjaer will be hoping to change Ince’s mind and of course the United board when they face Brighton on Saturday.
