Man Utd news LIVE: Conte makes United interest known, Brendan Rodgers on shortlist EXCLUSIVE


Man Utd are considering SACKING Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before this weekend’s game against Tottenham, according to reports.

The under-fire Norwegian boss, 48, watched in horror as his side were ripped apart and thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

And now, Manchester Evening News claim the club are considering axing Solskjaer.

The ex-Cardiff chief could be given the boot BEFORE Saturday’s game against Tottenham.

Meanwhile, SunSport can exclusively reveal Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte are being sounded out as successors to Solskjaer.

Worried Old Trafford chiefs want to know whether former Real Madrid boss Zidane and ex-Chelsea coach Conte – both out of work – would be interested in the job.

A leading agent has been instructed to contact some of the biggest names in the game, with Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers – a former Liverpool boss – also on the shortlist.

The agent has been told to discover each of the candidates’ plans for the club and their own contract demands.

Finally, Solskjaer reportedly kept his Manchester United players in the dressing room for TWO HOURS after their thrashing at home to Liverpool.

In a bid to get the seriousness of his message across after the Liverpool defeat, Manchester Evening News are reporting that he kept the players in the dressing room for two hours to make them understand the magnitude of the loss.

Solskjaer also held a meeting after the crushing loss where he begged his United players to fight.

A club source told the Daily Mail: “It was made clear to the players that they all, including the manager, would get battered this week.

“But the message was that the team either fights each other or fight back together.”
