With the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer, Manchester United was expected to challenge for the Premier League title this season. However, things haven’t clicked at Old Trafford, and despite the arrival of Ralf Rangnick United has continued to struggle. They’ve fallen 20 points behind leaders Manchester City and clearly need a fresh start next season. We take a look at who could be Manchester United’s next manager and you can bet here with freetips.
Who Will Be The Next Manchester United Manager?
These Managers Could Get Manchester United Back On Track
Erik Ten Hag
Erik Ten Hag has been Ajax manager since 2017 and may consider leaving the Johan Cruyff Arena in search of a fresh challenge. Ten Hag has won five trophies at Ajax including two Eredivisie’s and guided a young Ajax side to the Champions League semi-final in 2019. Alongside his five trophies, Ten Hag also gained a reputation for being a good developer of players. Hakim Zyiech, Frankie De Jong, Matthijs De Ligt, and Donny Van De Beek all became top players under his leadership. This would help Manchester United as they have many young players (Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, and Aaron Wan Bissaka) who could become world-class with a bit more development. Ten Hag would be tasked with taking these players to the next level.
Despite not winning a trophy while in England, Mauricio Pochettino has a reputation as one of the best Premier League managers in recent times. The former Tottenham Hotspur boss took over the club when they were in turmoil, similar to Manchester United’s position now, and took them within touching distance of club football’s greatest prize. With more financial firepower at PSG, Pochettino will get to prove he can win trophies this season and the Red Devils will hope they can lure him to Old Trafford and make him the next Manchester United manager.
The current Manchester United manager was appointed on a caretaker basis in December but didn’t rule out the possibility of taking over full-time. United haven’t been perfect since Rangnick took over but they’ve only lost once in the Premier League and have climbed back into the top four. Finishing the season by securing top four and going on a good run in the Champions League may see Rangnick still managing the Red Devils next season.
