Manchester United lost to Watford the past weekend (4-1) and Watford is considered to be one of the weak teams in the league. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been the coach for the past few months and fans have not been impressed with his coaching skills as the team has been losing a lot of the matches under his watch. Fans have complained countless times on social media to persuade the management of the team to sack Ole as the coach.
Fortunately, the cries of the fans have been heard and Ole was the coach for the last time this past week. The management of the team has revealed the next four candidates for the job namely Mauricio Pochettino, Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag. Mauricio Pochettino is the current PSG (Paris Saint-Germain F.C) boss and he signed a one-year extension on his contract until 2023 which is a result of ensuring that PSG is at the top of Ligue 1 (2021-2022) currently. Zinedine Zidane on the other hand won three consecutive Champion League titles with Manchester United from 2016, but rumours have been surfaced already that Zidane might not be interested in the job. Brendan Rodgers is the current manager for Leicester and he would be prepared to leave the club anyday for Manchester United, and a required compensation package of £8 million for Mr Rodgers to join the team, whereas Erik ten Hag has 18 months left on his deal with Ajax which is the same team that he won two titles with and he has an excellent knack of getting the best of the players he works with by ensuring that they improve their football skills every day.
For Manchester United to improve in terms of their performance as a whole they need to hire a new coach and assistant coach and players need to be given undivided attention so that they can be a good team once more. We hope that the name of the new coach will be disclosed soon enough by the management team, since the players need a coach to function well as a collective.
