Man Utd eye Zidane and Pochettino, interim boss appointed, next manager odds- LATEST updates


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked by Manchester United after a horror run of five defeats in seven games.

He becomes the FOURTH manager to try – and fail – to replace Sir Alex Ferguson after his retirement in 2013.

David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho were all sacked in the past eight years, and now Solskjaer joins the gang.

The bottom line is that he won no trophies, unlike his more recent predecessors

Mourinho led United to a Europa League and EFL Cup double in 2017, while Van Gaal lifted the FA Cup in 2016 just days before he was sacked.

However Solskjaer’s win percentage was surprisingly good.

Solskjaer has the third-highest win percentage of ANY manager in United’s history.

His record of 91 wins from his 168 games in charge across all competitions is second best in the post-Fergie era – behind only Mourinho.

The Norwegian achieved a win rate of 54.2 per cent, behind Mourinho’s 58.3 per cent from 144 matches.
