The Manchester United board have been faithful to Ole Gunner Solskjaer so far. Next month marks the two-year anniversary since Ole was given the top job. Many fans love Solskjaer but is he the right man for the job to get United back to the top spot?
Rumours have been rife with Pochettino leading the odds to be the next United manager. Pochettino is in demand and the casual slow pace of the United may mean they miss out as other clubs are sniffing the successful manager out.
Despite spending over £250 million during the last two years Solskjaer’s side sit 9th in the Premier League with recent transfers not showing the desired results.
Who Else Could United Land?
The top United role is a coveted one, but it comes with high expectations, there are multiple managers who have their eyes on the role, but the odds all say Pochettino is the likely man for the job.
Allegri most recent role was managing Juventus. He had an amazing win ratio of 70.48% with a goal difference of +316. His style of attacking play would suit United’s fans. He current odds of becoming the next United manager is 6/1.
Another manager from Southampton, if only they could keep them they may become a leading premier league team! Hasenhuttl has had five managerial roles including SpVgg Unterhaching, VfR Aalen, FC Ingolstadt 04, RB Leipzig and Southampton. His recent Southampton stint has led to a 39.74% win percentage and a goal difference of -7. He’s the third favourite in the eyes of the bookies but his win percentage and style of play don’t lead us to believe he is the man for the Unite top job. The odds for him to take the position are currently 12/1.
He’s young but he’s show amazing promise. Nagelsmann has only managed two clubs after a very short career with 0 games played at the top level. He spent 3 years managing 1899 Hoffenheim and is currently the manager of RB Leipzig. He has an overall win percentage of 45.64% with a goal difference of +124. His attacking style would benefit United’s setup. His current odds are 10/1.
Enrique had an amazing career on the pitch and that success has followed into management. With two stints at managing Spain. His best spell was with Barcelona where he boasts a 76.2% win percentage. He’s an outsider with odds of 20/1.
Is Pochettino The Man For The Job?
Pochettino has had a steady career with only three managerial roles with Espanyol, Southampton and Spurs. His overall win percentage is only 45.7% but this lifted to 54.3% with Spurs. Compared with Ole’s 55.34% win ratio you have to ask if Pochettino will fair any better.
