Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not been in office since last Sunday. Manchester United therefore needs a new coach. The catch: desired solution Mauricio Pochettino is still in an employment relationship with Paris St. Germain and otherwise the market does not currently have the very big trainer caliber to offer.
For this reason, the Red Devils are first looking for a man who should bring the season to a conciliatory end. The names Ralf Rangnick, currently Head of Sport and Development at Lokomotiv Moscow, and ex-Barça coach Ernesto Valverde have already been traded. Now the Telegraph also lists a certain Lucien Favre.
The Swiss, well-known from the Bundesliga, most recently in office and dignity at Borussia Dortmund for two and a half years, is just as much a candidate as long-time Ligue 1 coach Rudi Garcia.
Talks are ongoing
Who will be accepted for the United job at the end is still completely open at the moment. According to the Telegraph, those responsible now want to hold talks with all the candidates. At the end of the casting, a decision should be made – it cannot be ruled out that a former Bundesliga coach will be awarded the contract.
