Chances for next Manchester United manager: Zinedine Zidane remains favorite if Solskjær is sacked

Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rogers, and Antonio Conte lead the bookmakers’ odds on Monday, with Ronaldo even on the list.

Manchester United’s 5-0 thrashing of bitter rivals Liverpool has increased the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

No decision has yet been made on the Norwegian’s future by the United Hierarchy, but the end could be near after a few scorching weeks.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who works for Sky Sports Italy, says they are expected to meet in the coming days and decide whether to stay with Ole.

Despite still being on the line, bookmakers are making a hefty trade over who could succeed the 1999 three-time winner if he faces the boat. Here we look at their frontrunners.

Zidane
Zinedine Zidane, who has been unemployed since he left Real Madrid, has been the six-bookmaker’s leader with his odds cut to 5/2 at the time of writing.

The Frenchman is a born winner, both as a player and as a manager, winning everything there is to offer. During his two stints as manager of Madrid, he won three Champions Leagues, two FIFA Club World Cups, and two league titles.

Rogers
Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is the second favorite, although his chances have dropped to 7/2.

The Northern Irishman led United’s rivals Liverpool and nearly took them to a Premier League title, but given his past links, his appointment may not fail among the most ardent of supporters.

But Rodgers is also keen to stay at Leicester City and has seemingly rejected the advances of big money Newcastle United lately.

Conte
Antonio Conte is behind Brendan Rodgers, although the Daily Mail has reported that he would harbor the idea of ​​managing the Red Devils and has a 9/2 chance.

Conte won the Serie A title with Inter Milan but later left his role at the San Siro due to transfer differences.

The 52-year-old already has experience of managing in the Premier League after winning the league title in 2017.

His winning credentials in the division are something United could consider as they haven’t won a league title since Sir Alex Ferguson left.

The Mail reports that the Italian wants full control over new signings and guarantees about his role, which could perhaps bring the idea of ​​a role as sporting director at the club to life.

Ronaldo
Current first-team player Cristiano Ronaldo is a shock candidate with both Paddy Power and Betfair offering 16/1 chances, making him the fourth favorite to take the lead.

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner has shown no signs of a management career and lacks the appropriate coaching qualifications to lead the club.

Add that in mind to the plethora of coaches at Old Trafford at the moment, such as Michael Carrick, and there are other more suitable options for an interim period.

Others are mentioned
Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag’s chances have improved with William Hill and he closes out the top five with his best odds at 10/1 with both PaddyPower and Betfair.

Ten Hag has been in the interest of both Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur in recent months, but could now

One name that will not disappear is Mauricio Pochettino, who has been constantly linked during Solskjaer’s tenure.

Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, is still 16/1 with William Hill and is unlikely to leave the Parc de Princes given the blistering start he has had this season.

For the Argentine, it may again be a matter of having the right man at the wrong time, given the persistent rumors between United and himself.
