For Manchester United, the search for a new, permanent manager is underway. Jose Mourinho lost his job, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will take the job in the interim.
No doubt some of football’s elite will be keen on replacing the self-proclaimed Special One, and the latest to throw his hat into the ring is former Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte.
That’s according to the Daily Telegraph, who say that the Premier League title winner is interested in the job over the summer.
Personally, I don’t feel like this would be a wise appointment. He adopts a similar style to Mourinho, and I think this club needs to be taken in a different direction.
We need to get back to fast, free-flowing, exciting football if we’re to return to the summit, hence why I like the Solskjaer appointment in the short-term.
Thankfully, though, I think United aren’t keen on bringing Conte in. If they wanted him, it’s likely that they would have made the permanent move now, because he’s available so why wait until the summer?
The name on everyones lips is Mauricio Pochettino, and the Argentine would definitely be my #1 choice.
