Conte Appointment: Positions Antonio Conte Could Strengthen If He Replaces Solskjaer As United Manager

Manchester United's poor run of form has been traced to the management and Manchester United fans as well as reputable ex-United players of the opinion of showing the Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the exit door. The Red Devils hierarchy are now holding talks to decide what to do concerning the future of Solskjaer in the next few hours.

Believe me that if this were Chelsea or other clubs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have been forgotten as the manager. It's now obvious that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure, but it remains uncertain if Glazers sacks the Norwegian manager anytime soon.

Although, talks are ongoing between the former Chelsea manager and United's board. It seems the club is willing to hire Conte to replace the Norwegian tactician. Having known these, here are two roles Conte could strengthen if he's made the head coach of Manchester United.

Right-back role 

Conte is a fan of the unpopular 3-man defense formation, the former Chelsea coach will likely opt for a three-man defense that will occupy the likes of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Raphael Varane. Wan Bissaka will be dropped to the bench because of his inability to attack. The manager could strengthen by signing a right-back like Trippier who will play as a wing right-back.

Defensive midfield position.

It's obvious that McTominay and Fred cannot handle the role. Despite deploying both of them to handle a single position, the opponents still break the midfield easily. Signing a defensive midfielder could be key to unlocking Pogba's potential.
