5 managers who could replace Solskjaer

English Premier League

With Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemingly under mounting pressure as results continue to not go his way, here are five managers who could replace him at Old Trafford. 

It is now three matches without a win in the Premier League for the Red Devils after they suffered a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday.

The club's incredible 29-game away unbeaten streak was also snapped by Brendan Rodgers' team on the day.

The Manchester club has now won just a single game in their past five outings across all competitions, despite signing the superstar trio of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo in August.  

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the club's owners the Glazers are still backing Solskjaer at this point, but if they do decide to sack the head coach, it is believed that Antonio Conte would be interested in taking over, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Italian tactician has been without a managerial job since May, when he and Inter Milan decided to part ways despite having just won the Serie A title together.  

Another name that could be of interest to the United board is Zinedine Zidane, but according to the Express, the former Real Madrid playmaker is said to have his eye on the France job.

Didier Deschamps' recent 2021 UEFA Nations League triumph with Les Bleus, however, may force the Los Blancos legend to rethink his plans and avail himself to the EPL giants.

A potential surprise candidate is Laurent Blanc, who currently coaches Al-Rayyan SC in Qatar. The ex-United defender has worked with the French national team and Paris Saint-Germain in the past, and many believe he would jump at the opportunity to take charge of the Manchester club. 

Speaking of PSG managers, Mauricio Pochettino is also reportedly a possible candidate should Solskjaer be relieved of his duties. This is not the first time the Argentine has been linked with the Old Trafford hot seat, but prising him away from Paris may prove a difficult act.  

Perhaps a more realistic candidate is Foxes manager Rodgers, whose team put United to the sword on Saturday. However, his history with Liverpool, where he spent three years coaching the Reds, may prove a stumbling block, and he is reportedly also said to have one eye on Pep Guardiola's job at Manchester City.
