EPL: Berbatov hands Man Utd names of two managers after Solskajer’s sack
Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has handed the club names of two managers to coach the club following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sack.
Berbatov believes Mauricio Pochettino may be the clear candidate to take over at Old Trafford, but if that cannot happen then, the Red Devils should turn to Laurent Blanc.
Pochettino is the current manager of Paris Saint-Germain, while Blanc is currently in charge of Qatari side Al-Rayyan.
“United have long admired Mauricio Pochettino but, as he is currently the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, it is difficult to see how he could be appointed at Old Trafford any time soon,” Berbatov told Betfair.
“The only solution I can see would be if Zinedine Zidane was to go to PSG. If he is open to that, then I could see a switch for Pochettino happening soon.
“That said, there can often be surprises when it comes to appointing managers. When Jose Mourinho was sacked, who thought Solskjaer would succeed him and stay in charge for three years? We have been surprised in the past and maybe surprised again.
“Many United fans would be pleased to see Pochettino in charge and I can understand why after his success at Tottenham and his commitment to team-building.”
He added, “Laurent Blanc is an interesting candidate.
“He’s an ex-United player, who won everything, has managed PSG and France, has the respect of the players and he has the charisma and composure required to manage United.”
