2 Huge Problems Man United Could Face This Year If They Sack Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

1. Finding A Better Replacement.

A lot of fans think it's easy to sack a manager mid-season and appoint a new one but it isn't. Yes, we see small clubs do it every time but Manchester United are not Watford or Crystal Palace, are they? For big teams, it takes more to sack a manager than it takes to get a new one. At the moment, we have available options if Ole is perhaps sacked but how many of them are willing to take the job at this moment. Zinedine Zidane and Conte are available but to enter negotiation for these managers could take days, weeks even. And what are the chances that United's form will change instantly if they are hired? None. Also, the criteria for getting a better replacement defers from club to club. United will need a long term replacement but managers like Conte are just short term fixes. One or two seasons and he's gone so it's more difficult for a big team to get a better manager for the team and the club.

2. Dropping Points.

Manchester United's fixture list right now still has some big names in it and getting rid of Solskjaer now could make them drop even more points in the league. My reason for saying this is that firstly, it takes days to get a new manager so it's more likely that the team would be 'manager-less for a few days if the club sacks Ole. Next weekend, United have another big game and being without a manager make them lose points. Secondly, for new managers there is always a period for adaptation in this period, they could lose games. This is the period they find the right players for their tactics and sometimes, it takes weeks. For example, Julian Naggelsmann lost a few games in his first few weeks as Bayern Munich manager before he turned the team around and started winning. Every manager will not have the same impact as Tuchel had at Chelsea.
