Things aren’t going pretty well at Old Trafford for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal. Out from the Champions League, standing fifth in the Premier League with only 9 wins in the 20 games played, and recent defeats to the newly promoted sides, ‘Bournemouth’ and ‘Norwich City’ has certainly created a crisis situation at the club. If rumors are to be believed, LVG has a few matches under his belt to prove himself. But, what happens after he is sacked? Who will replace him as the next ‘Boss’ at the ‘Theatre of Dreams ‘? We take a look at the possible candidates who can take over as the next United Manager.
Josep “Pep” Guardiola Sala needs no introduction and we very well know about his stint at Barcelona and the grand success he achieved with the glorious Barcelona Team. Come 2016, and Guardiola is ready to leave Bayern Munich after seeing out his contract with the Bavarians .Guardiola has his very unique style of managing teams. He can very well transform this boring and dull United side into a sparkling team with a breathtaking one-touch passing gameplay. With City too luring Guardiola, United need to act fast if they want him to manage the mighty Manchester United squad.
Champions League with FC Porto and Inter Milan, league success with FC Porto, Chelsea, InterMilan, Real Madrid and scintillating counter attacks, the man needs no further introduction. As named by himself, ’The Special One’, is truly special and a great gift to the football world. Probably, he is the man Manchester United need right now. A tactical veteran with a habit of winning wherever he goes. Surely, sacking from Chelsea would have increased the hunger within him. He might very well revive Wayne Rooney’s career. Surely, it would be great fun watching Jose at Old Trafford with lots of drama, emotions and yes, wins!
The man with the most number of trophies as a team player, Manchester United Legend and currently a deputy to LVG, Ryan Giggs might very well be the answer to Manchester United’s woes. Giggs legendary image at United, which he earned himself, quite well be very handy for him, to control the star studded Manchester United dressing room. He has the respect of the fans, and he has a strong possibility to succeed Van Gaal. Following the footsteps of Barcelona and Real Madrid, United might hand in their ex-player, the managerial role, eyeing a lot of success from the 42 year old.
The current Atletico Madrid boss would be an exciting fit for Manchester United. After four-and-a-half years in charge of the Vincente Calderon, Simeone might seek for a new challenge. He guided Atletico to win the La Liga title in 2014, breaking the dominance of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
He also reached the Champions League final in the same year, only to be denied by an extra time header by Sergio Ramos. Simeone has a unique style of managing his team with no nonsense gameplay. Appointing Simeone would also open doors to sign young talents like Koke and Oliver Torres. If rumors are to be believed, the Argentine surely aspires to manage one of the elite clubs of Europe.
As a Football coach, you are always expected to win trophies and Sampaoli proved his credentials very well with the Chile National team, when he guided the Chilean National Team to their first Copa America title, after defeating Argentina in the final in 2015. He is very well known for his attack tactics. He still doesn’t have any experience of coaching in the Premier League, but with his desire to manage in Europe,Manchester United board can surely trust the Argentine who definitely guarantees success with the current squad.
