The Italian coach could bench some players if he is hired to manage the team because they are not performing well. Here are 3 Manchester United players Antonio Conte could bench, if he becomes the new coach of the team.

1 - Jadon Sancho: The young English playmaker has failed to make any impact in Manchester United football club ever since he was signed from Borrusia Dortmund football club. He is one of the players who could be relegated to the bench if Antonio Conte is hired.

He has not been performing well for the club, he has not scored any goal for the team this season and he has not provided any assist for the club. Another thing is that he might not fit into the tactics of Antonio Conte.

2 - Harry Maguire: The English defender has been a very inconsistent player for Manchester United football club this season, his poor performance contributed the to the defeat that the team suffered last weekend against Leicester city football club.

He could become a bench warmer at Manchester United football club if Antonio Conte is appointed as the new coach of the club because the former Inter Milan boss might decide to go with more consistent defenders.

3 - Fred: Many Manchester United have fans have been calling on the club to sign a replacement for the Brazilian, but that might be unnecessary if Antonio Conte becomes the coach of the club.

He likes using the 3-4-3 formation and this means that he will only deploy two central midfielders. Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes might be the ones to occupy the position, so Fred might be dropped.
