Premier League 2019-20: 3 possible replacements at Manchester United if Solskjaer is sacked
Manchester United have had a really bad start to the season. Their victories away against Norwich last weekend and against Chelsea mid-week in the Carabao Cup seemed to hint at a turnaround, but their loss against Bournemouth in the league yesterday highlighted their problems again.
This was their fourth loss of the season already, and has made the task of finishing in the top 4 even more difficult. The result will obviously raise questions on the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and it is not out of the realm of possibility that he could face the sack.
If that does indeed happen, here is a look at some of the replacement options available to United:
1. Massimiliano Allegri
Massimiliano Allegri has been without a job since leaving Juventus in the summer. He spent five successful seasons at Juventus where he won multiple trophies including five consecutive Serie A titles. He also guided Juventus to two Champions League finals.
Allegri's teams are usually very disciplined, something that Manchester United seem to be lacking right now. He builds his teams from the back and prioritizes clean sheets a lot. His teams may not play the way United have historically played, but he is known to deliver results and win trophies.
There have been reports that Allegri is learning English, which shows his interest in coaching a team in England. He is a proven coach at the highest level, and he won't struggle with the pressure faced at big clubs as he has already managed teams such as Juventus and AC Milan.
Allegri will need a couple of players, especially in defence and midfield, to shape the team in his image. But there is no doubting that he has the ability to take Manchester United back to the very top.
