Manchester United are in the process of identifying the gaffer who will lead them on a full-time basis from next season. Even though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been doing a splendid job so far, the Norwegian isn’t assured to retain the job come summer.
A host of names have been linked with the Mancunian giants, with the speculation of Mauricio Pochettino being one that refuses to go away.
In addition to a manager, who will function in a role akin to that of a head coach, a director of football is also expected to be appointed by Ed Woodward and company at the club.
As of recent, Juventus boss Max Allegri was reported to be in the running for the gig, and now, we have a solid word on the matter from the man himself.
“We are doing a great job together with the fans. There are many games to win before the end of the season, there is time before June. Italian football is fascinating, I am not tired of it. I want to stay to improve Italian football.”
He went on to add: “Outside this world, there are many things to be done, we need to involve the kids to build a better future for this game.”
While the move didn’t appear to be in the making regardless, United will have nevertheless lost out on a strong contender for the top post.
It will be interesting to see who the club eventually decides on. As of now, the media has been painting a pretty strong picture in favor of the Spurs boss taking over at Old Trafford, although here and there, other names have also entered the fray.
