Manchester United are left without a coach after parting ways with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following yet another humiliating loss over the weekend, the latest a 4-1 defeat to Watford. As they go in search of a replacement, a number of coaches in jobs around Europe have been named as possible candidates.

Ajax’s Erik ten Hag threw cold water on reports linking him with the vacancy at Old Trafford, and Zinedine Zidane is unlikely as his wife is reluctant to live in the north of England. Now, there have been suggestions that Solskjaer‘s sacking could set off a chain reaction around Europe, with Mauricio Pochettino joining United and Zidane taking his place at the Parc des Princes.

Iconic ex-boss Alex Ferguson is keen on the idea of Manchester United appointing Pochettino, while PSG have always had Zidane in mind as someone they would like to see take over in the French capital someday.

But the operation won’t be easy, particularly not with the Champions League group stage still ongoing
