Seeking Replacement for Solskjaer’s Hot Seat

The results Manchester United continued to show affected the heat of the coach’s seat, which Ole Gunar Solskjaer now holds. The defeat of the team, Manchester City in the first semi-final of the English League Cup with a score of 1-3, increasingly made the Norwegian coach received a sharp spotlight from fans of the Red Devils (nickname of Manchester United).

With the defeat of Pep Guardiola’s troops made the red devil unable to win in his last three matches.Yes, in the English Premier League, Manchester United have been able to enter the zone between European clubs by occupying the fifth position of the standings.

However, the gap created with rivals above is quite straightforward, especially with the top three position of the standings. Paul Pogba and his friends are now 13 points adrift of city rivals, blue Manchester (another name Manchester City), which is now ranked third below Leicester City and Liverpool.

Quoted from the Daily Mail, the condition of Solskjaer’s vulnerable position is monitored by Massimiliano Allegri. After his contract with Juventus was not renewed, Allegri’s position is currently unemployed. According to a growing issue, at the moment he is patiently not returning to coaching any team because of waiting for the opportunity to coach Manchester United.

Staying in questions, Allegri be a strong candidate as new manager if management finally terminates the contract in the next few weeks. In addition to Allegri, Manchester United can also be linked with former Tottenham Hotspurs coach Mauricio Pochetino. The same thing with Allegri, the Argentine coach also has not coached any team.

I wonder who will eventually be recruited by Manchester United Management to coach Paul Fogba and his friends?

In the opinion of the writer, in order to determine who should be chosen to train a large team of MU classmates, surely a coach who has experience and a mentality of champion is needed.

In this case, the name Aleggri is worth putting forward. You see, his performance with the old lady (the nickname of Juventus, the Italian Serie A team) was quite classy.

During five seasons dealing with Juventus, Allegri successfully won 11 trophies. Namely, five series A scudetto in a row, four Italian Cups and two Italian Super Cups. Previously, Allegri had also been successful with AC Milan by presenting a 2010 Scudetto season title and the 2011 Italian Super Cup.

With this myriad of champions’ experience and mentality, it seems reasonable that the red demon management is recruiting Allegri. Not to mention, the slick notes of the Italian coaches when they coached the English teams can be used as a reference to further strengthen the determination of MU management to use the services of Allegri.

Italian coaches who have had success with teams from England call it Gianluca Vialli who successfully presented five championship titles. The titles are FA Cup (1999/2000), League Cup (1997/1998), Community Shield (2000), Winner Cup (1997/1998) and UEFA Super Cup (1998).

Besides Vialli, there is the name of Carlo Ancelotti. Don Carlo, Ancelotti’s nickname once led Chelsea to win the Community Shield (2009), in that season, Ancelotti also successfully stealing the FA Cup and Premier League trophy in the season (2009/2010).

Then there is the name Roberto Di Matteo. Although not long coaching Chelsea, he was able to present a prestigious trophy for European football clubs, namely the European Champions League trophy. After Di Matteo, there was another Italian coach who achieved success, namely Roberto Mancini. The former Italian national team player successfully led Manchester City to grab the FA Cup, Premier League and Community Shield titles.

Claudio Ranieri is also listed as an Italian coach who has tasted success in England. Surprisingly he was able to bring the team up, Leicester City won the English Premier League in the 2015/2016 season. Finally there is the name Antonio Conte. The explosive coach on the sidelines succeeded in presenting one Premier League title and one FA Cup title.

Given the success stories of the Italian coaches, it is not impossible if Allegri could follow his predecessor if he was recruited by Manchester United. Then what about Pochettino? Without intending to play down his abilities, the Argentine coach is only superior in terms of mastery of the atmosphere of the English League, while coaching Tottenham Hotspurs.

His highest achievement with Hotspurs is winning the title of European Champions League runner-up in the 2018/2019 season. So, if you look at the comparison of these two coaches, which one is more appropriate to coach Manchester United, according to you?
