2 Key Players Who Could Be Affected If Manchester United Appoint Antonio Conte To Replace Solskjaer

As the season moves on, Manchester United manager keeps experiencing pressure as the Red Devils manager. This pressure is increasing because of Manchester United's poor performance both in the Premier League and in other competitions.

Manchester United fans around the globe are unhappy with how things are moving in the club. Despite signing world-class players during the summer transfer window, Manchester United are yet to find their feet. The Red Devils have won only two of their last seven games, and this stat is a very poor one for a team that has big names like Pogba, Fernandes, Ronaldo, and others.

Ex-Manchester United players and the Red Devils fans are currently calling on the club's hierarchy to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the favorite manager for the job is Antonio Conte. Having known these, here are two Manchester United players who could be affected if Antonio Conte takes over as Manchester United's boss. 

Mason Greenwood.

The Academy graduate is one of the youngest best players in Europe. The English international is undroppable because of his performance in the Theatre of Dreams, he's currently Manchester United's best player. Although the youngster is good at what he does, but Antonio Conte's 3-5-2 formation could leave him out of the lineup for the bench. The manager may prefer a starting duo of Ronaldo and Cavani at the front. 


The Brazilian midfielder is one of those players that have established themselves in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting lineup. Should Conte emerge as Manchester United manager, the coach may likely opt for a midfield trio of Mctominay, Pogba, and Bruno Fernandes, thereby leaving the Brazilian on the bench as the second choice behind Matic.
