Check Out The Five Worst Managers In Manchester United History

Manchester United has produced some of the finest players and coaches in the history of the sport. However, since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, United has been unable to identify a suitable successor for their most successful manager. On that point, these are Manchester United's five worst managers in the club's history.

5. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Despite coming extremely close to being fired on several scenarios, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has kept his job. The 48-year-old has done an excellent job revamping Manchester United's team, instilling some of the famous club's key values.

4. Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United career got off to a great start when he won three titles in his first season in charge. Mourinho had a good run at Manchester United, but he was highly criticized for his defensive strategy and man-management abilities. He had a falling out with players like Paul Pogba, and the team's morale was at an all-time worst.

3. Frank O'Farrell

When Frank O'Farrell took over as manager of Manchester United in the summer of 1971, he faced an impossible task in replacing Sir Matt Busby. The Irishman was given £500,000 to help rebuild the team, which was a huge sum at the time. After a 5-0 loss against Crystal Palace, O'Farrell was fired for failing to deliver the expected results.

2. Louis Van Gaal

At Old Trafford, Van Gaal only won one trophy: the FA Cup in 2015-16. After failing to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title, he was fired just two days later. Van Gaal led Manchester United to 54 victories, 24 draws, and 25 loses in 103 games.

1. David Moyes

Following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, David Moyes was the first of a slew of managers who have failed at Manchester United. David Moyes had a record of 26 wins, ten draws, and 15 loses in 51 games as Manchester United manager. He was replaced by Ryan Giggs, who took over as temporary manager.
