The Champions of the Premier League, Manchester United have already began their search for a new manager following the sacking of David Moyes, after only 10 months of being in charge. Moyes was originally handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson to take over his job after Ferguson saw how well the Scotsman did in his managerial role at Everton, before the Red Devils. However, David Moyes has had a diabolical season with Manchester United as he has been knocked out of every tournament so far and the Red Devils have no chance of finishing in the top 4 positions.
The player that Ferguson first introduced into the Manchester United side in 1990, Ryan Giggs has been given the responsibility of managing the Red Devils for the last 3 Premier League matches. Giggs, who has only ever played for Manchester United in his senior professional career, will take the job temporarily and will then hand the reigns over to whoever the Red Devils choose next. The Welshman is not likely to stay as the permanent manager after his temporary role, but instead United are looking for a more experienced manager.
The favourite to become the new Manchester United manager is Dutchman Louis van Gaal, who has previously managed both Barcelona and Bayern Munich. There were rumours that the Red Devils were looking to chase after Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich managers Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola, but it doesn’t look likely that they will leave their team. Carlo Ancelotti is also in the pot of names, but the way Real Madrid are doing in the Champions League, it looks as though he won’t leave. Sir Alex Ferguson is tipped at 33/1 to have a comeback to the role, something that is unlikely.
Many believe that Manchester United need an experienced manager if they are to be as successful as before and former Welsh international partner of Ryan Giggs and current pundit, Robbie Savage had his say, “In the future, Ryan can be a successful manager. But going forward it’s such a huge transfer window for United that they need an experienced man at the helm. Keeping Ryan as assistant manager would be a great idea. He has United in his blood and has won countless trophies. He would be able to learn the ropes from a manager who has won trophies and been there and done it.”
Louis Van Gaal 8/11, Carlo Ancelotti 6/1, Jurgen Klopp 12/1, Jose Mourinho 14/1, Diego Simone 20/1, Ryan Giggs 25/1, Pep Guardiola 28/1, Sir Alex Ferguson 33/1, Gary Neville 50/1.
