Despite the fact that Manchester United are currently in first place in the Premier League table, there are still calls for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be fired. The Norwegian’s 2-1 Champions League loss to FC Young Boys on Tuesday was surely a humbling experience.
Antonio Conte, who left Inter Milan in the summer and is again available, is one name that is currently being mentioned. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since returning from Juventus as Manchester United took the lead early against Young Boys. However, Aaron Wan-red Bissaka’s card transformed the game, as the Red Devils lost 2-1 as a result of Jesse Lingard’s late blunder.
In the wake, fans have called for Conte to take charge at Old Trafford on social media. The Italian is a free agent after leaving Inter Milan after leading them to the Scudetto earlier this year. Conte’s hiring has also been called for by talkSPORT’s Jason Cundy, who said: “That there, proves he’s [Solskjaer] totally stupid.”
“Young Boys are usually European football’s whipping boys, and United is beaten 2-1… It was a catastropheclass, a complete disaster.
“It did a poor job of exposing Ole. I’d fire him. Aren’t we aware of what’s to come? You’ve got Antonio Conte on your hands.
“Who do you think is the best manager? There will be a point in the season when they say, ‘I wish we had done it sooner.” Conte had previously been connected with the United position, particularly before Solskjaer’s appointment.
And even if the Glazers are forced to fire the Norwegian, they will already have Sir Alex Ferguson’s blessing. Sir Alexander Chapman Ferguson (born December 31, 1941) is a Scottish former football manager and player best remembered for his tenure as manager of Manchester United between 1986 and 2013. He is largely recognized as the greatest manager in football history, having won more titles than any other manager. He is most recognized as a player for his time with the Rangers.
