Next Man Utd manager odds: Zidane tipped for Old Trafford post
Zinedine Zidane is the favourite to take over as Manchester United manager.
It’s currently 7/4 the former Real Madrid boss heads to Old Trafford after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was relieved of his duties on Sunday morning.
United made the decision in the wake of their 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday – their fifth loss in seven Premier League matches.
A club statement said: “Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager.
“Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision.
“While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they should not obscure all the work he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success.
“Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts as manager and our very best wishes for the future.
Manchester United can confirm that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as Manager.
Thank you for everything, Ole ❤️#MUFC

“His place in the club’s history will always be secure, not just for his story as a player, but as a great man and a manager who gave us many great moments.
“He will forever be welcome back at Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family.”
Michael Carrick has been put in temporary charge while the club look to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season and he is priced at 9/2 in the next Man Utd manager odds.
