Zidane, Rodgers, Pochettino — Five managers who could replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked as Man United manager and the MEN have looked at potential permanent replacements.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked as Manchester United manager.

Solskjaer's almost three-year reign at Old Trafford came to an end on Sunday morning following United's 4-1 defeat against Watford.

Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo arrived at the club this summer and United were expected to mount a serious Premier League title challenge, however, Solskjaer's side have failed to convince and performances have been consistently poor.

Solskjaer survived the Liverpool debacle and the Manchester derby humiliation but the Watford defeat was the final blow.

Michael Carrick will now take charge of the team for forthcoming games, while the club looks to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season, but the MEN have looked at five candidates that could replace Solskjaer on a permanent basis

This certainly isn't the first time that Zinedine Zidane has been linked with the United job.

Zidane's first job in management was at his former club Real Madrid and he won three Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles, two Spanish Super Cups and two FIFA Club World Cups across his time spent at the helm at the Bernabeu.

The Frenchman inherited a squad of world stars upon his appointment and there are doubts over his tactical credentials, though.

Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rogers recently admitted that he is '100 per cent' committed to Leicester but the Foxes' results haven't been great.

The exciting British manager also delivered a similar sentiment to the press when managing Celtic before Leicester swooped for his services and it is not beyond the possibility that he could be swayed by the power and resource of the United job.

Rodgers won the FA Cup with Leicester last season and has guided the club to regular European qualification.

Solskjaer was arguably tactically out-thought by Rodgers when United lost 4-2 against Leicester earlier this month.
