UEFA Champions League

3 Reasons Why Zidane May Eventually Manage Manchester United If Solskjaer Is Sacked

It is rumored that Manchester United are in contact with former Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane and are eyeing a possibility of him taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, if results don't improve at the club. Here are three reasons that may motivate Zidane to come to Manchester United if Solskjaer is sacked due to poor results.

1. He may be eyeing Champions League glory once again

Zinedine Zidane is a manager that knows how to succeed in the UEFA Champions League because he won 3 consecutive Champions League trophies from 2016 till 2018.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo's run of form may tempt him to come to Manchester United

There are many ways that Ronaldo could motivate Zidane to come over and manage Manchester United, if Solskjaer is eventually fired by the board.

First of all, Zidane may be tempted to come over to Manchester United because of Ronaldo's impressive goal scoring form, especially in the UEFA Champions League this season. He has scored 3 consecutive goals in the UEFA Champions League at the moment for Manchester United. After scoring against Atalanta yesterday, Ronaldo clocked 137 Champions League goals. This is the kind of player that Zidane managed at Real Madrid and he might be tempted to come back and manage him once more.

Also, Ronaldo and Zidane are good friends and there were even unconfirmed rumours that he recommended the Frenchman to the Manchester United board.

3. The squad depth is impressive

If results don't improve before December and Solskjaer is fired, then Zidane may come over and take over at Manchester United. Many fans complain that Manchester United has a very big squad that is capable of winning anything in the hands of a good manager. Players like Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane are all in the Manchester United squad. There is a feeling that if Zidane handles these players, he will transform them to trophy winners with his football tactics.
