Conte vs. Rodgers vs. Zidane vs. Ten Hag XI: Who has managed the best players at Man Utd?
MANCHESTER UNITED have named a four-man shortlist to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but who has the finest track record as a manager?
Following the 5-0 humiliation at home to Liverpool on Sunday, the Norwegian manager, 48, is under mounting pressure at Old Trafford.
United have now lost three of their last four Premier League games, falling eight points behind leaders Chelsea and into seventh place.
If they decide to sack Solskjaer, the Red Devils are keeping an eye on Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers, and Erik ten Hag.
Regardless of who takes over, the team will be stacked with players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.
But, among the four probable next United managers, who has guided the best players throughout their careers?
Let’s take a closer look…
In recent years, CONTE has coached superstar teams like Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Juventus, as well as the Italy national team.
As a result, selecting a best XI was a difficult task.
Gianluigi Buffon, Leonardo Bonucci, and Giorgio Chiellini are all selected in goal for Italy and Juventus.
John Terry, Chelsea’s ‘captain, leader, legend,’ joins them in a back-three.
Inter Milan’s remarkable Serie A title triumph in 2020-21 was made possible by Achraf Hakimi.
He begins on the right wing, with Marcos Alonso on the left, having played a key role in Chelsea’s Premier League title triumph in 2016-17.
In the middle of midfield, Andrea Pirlo (Juventus and Italy) joins N’Golo Kante (Chelsea).
They beat Juventus’ Paul Pogba into the team.
Eden Hazard, another vital piece in Conte’s Premier League-winning season, starts on the left, with Carlos Tevez (Juventus) starting on the right.
Romelu Lukaku, fresh off helping Inter to their first Serie A title in 11 years, is our team’s center-forward.

The XI chosen is virtually his first side from the 2016-17 season, when he won both the LaLiga and the Champions League.
Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane, and Marcelo start in defense, with Keylor Navas in goal.
The three midfielders are Luka Modrid, Casemiro, and Toni Kroos.
In a star-studded attack, the ‘BBC’ trio of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, and Cristiano Ronaldo start.
Rodgers, who is now the manager of Leicester City, has previously held positions at Liverpool and Celtic.
Rodgers almost led Liverpool to their first Premier League title in 2013-14, and the squad has a real Reds feel about it.
The ‘SAS’ (Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez) start in attack, with Raheem Sterling joining them later, meaning Jamie Vardy has no place.
The midfield is also made up entirely of Liverpool players,… Brinkwire Brief News.
