OLE SACKED: The Manager Man United Should Sign Instead Of Zidane, Pochettino And Rodgers

Apparently, Manchester United are still looking for the ideal candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, as they already have the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag, Luis Enrique and Brendan Rodgers as their potential options. Of course, the Red Devils need a brilliant and tactical manager, who's able to take the team's performance to the next level.

Meanwhile, there's a particular manager Manchester United should sign as the Norwegian gaffer's replacement, instead of signing Zidane, Pochettino, Rodgers and rest. Apparently, the Premier League side are currently going through a lot in their squad, as regards their all-around performance against Watford on Saturday. However, this manager has the ability and capability to turn around their statistics, based on his all-around displays at his current club.

The Red Devils should sign Erik ten Hag as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's ideal replacement, as the Dutch gaffer has everything it takes to boost their squad's performance this season. In all fairness, the Ajax boss will bring out the best in Manchester United's current squad more than any other manager on the list. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will be unstoppable under him.

Here is Erik ten Hag's record as Ajax manager:

185 games

135 wins (73% win rate) 

25 draws 

25 defeats 

4 trophies 

504 goals scored (2.7 per game) 

157 goals conceded (0.85 per game) 

Aside from that, the Dutch manager has only lost one away UEFA Champions League game since he arrived at Ajax, and they remain unbeaten in the UCL this season with 4 wins in 4 fixtures. In addition, Erik ten Hag has won two league titles, two Dutch cups, one UEFA Champions League semi-final and was named the 4th best coach in the world in 2019. 

Scoring 504 goals in 185 fixtures cannot be achieved by every manager, that's why Manchester United should sign the Ajax gaffer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's replacement, as he's indeed the perfect coach for the job. Brendan Rodgers is a brilliant and excellent manager, but he's not really different from the Norwegian boss, as regards his all-around performances in the Premier League, especially against Chelsea on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, Zinedine Zidane doesn't have enough potential to face the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp in the league. Of course, he won four UEFA Champions Leagues with Real Madrid, but he was able to bag the trophies because Cristiano Ronaldo was at his prime back then. That was why everything went sideways for the Frenchman, immediately after the Ballon D'or winner left Real Madrid for Juventus. 

Furthermore, Mauricio Pochettino has Premier League experience, but his CV (Curriculum Vitae) isn't convincing enough, as per being the ideal candidate to become the Red Devils' new gaffer. As a result, Erik ten Hag simply remains the best option for Manchester United, if they really want to restore their lost glory in Europe's top-5 leagues. Since the Dutch manager loves playing the 4-3-3 formation, the Red Devils' attacking line will be unstoppable under him at Old Trafford. 

Having seen how Erik ten Hag is making waves at Ajax, despite the fact that the Eredivisie side doesn't have enough elite-players in the squad. Manchester United should sign him instead of Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers, because he has every managerial tactics required to turn around the Red Devils' poor performance this season.
