Ex-Man United Star Names the Ideal Manager He Wants to Replace Solskjaer at Old Trafford
- Louis Saha contends Zinedine Zidane is best suited to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man United
- Zidane is currently without a job after quitting as Real Madrid manager at the end of last season
- While his name has widely been floated for the vacant Old Trafford job, he is sure to face stiff competition
- Ajax manager Erik ten Hag, Brendan Rodgers, and PSG's Mauricio Pochettino have all been linked
Former Man United star Louis Saha has identified Zinedine Zidane as the ideal candidate to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager at Old Trafford.
United are in the market in the hunt for a new manager after they recently sacked Solskjaer following a string of poor results.
The Norwegian was shown the door on Sunday, November 21, barely hours after the Red Devils had suffered a 4-1 humiliating defeat in the hands of Claudio Ranieri's Watford.
While Michael Carrick has since been named the caretaker boss, United are understood to be looking to find a manager to take charge on an interim basis pending the appointment of a permanent replacement.
A number of top names have already been floated for the job, with Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers, and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag believed to be among the leading candidates.
However, Saha contends Zidane is best suited to take over at the Theatre of Dreams, with the Frenchman currently out of job after quitting his role at Real Madrid at the end of last season.
"My personal choice would be Zidane due to his pedigree as a manager, not just because he was a great player – that’s not enough alone," Saha told Metro UK.
"Management wise, he’s one of the best, one of the only world-class players to become a world-class manager," he added.
Pochettino ready to quit PSG
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported Mauricio Pochettino is allegedly willing to leave PSG so he can take over as manager at Man United.
Pochettino has for the longest time been linked with the United job and was at one time a favourite to take over after Jose Mourinho was sacked in 2018.
Reports claim the Paris Saint-Germain boss is ready to work in the English top-flight division again after his spell with Tottenham.
