Cristiano Ronaldo’s appeal to Manchester United’s board of directors regarding a new manager.
On Sunday, Manchester United fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
For weeks, it seemed like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be fired as Manchester United manager. The Red Devils are in severe need of a new manager and have set their sights on Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain, despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s wishes.
United has been plummeting down the Premier League table in recent months.
The Red Devils were thrashed 4-1 by Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday, their third thrashing in their last four league games after losing 2-0 to Manchester City and 5-0 to Liverpool.
With a group as excellent as United’s, they should be fighting for trophies and battling it out for the league title with teams like City, Liverpool, and Chelsea.
As a result, the club wants Solskjaer’s successor to be a long-term solution to their problems, and former Tottenham manager Pochettino is considered as the best viable option.
According to the Daily Star, Ronaldo prefers Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane to be appointed instead.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner spent two-and-a-half seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu under Zidane, winning the Champions League three times and La Liga once.
Ronaldo is said to have told individuals at the club that Zidane is a proven winner, but his pleadings have gone unheeded, and the Portugal captain is in the minority in his support for Zidane.
Instead, Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, and the rest of the team are unanimous in their support for Pochettino’s return to the Premier League as manager. He is also the board’s top priority, and they want him to take over as soon as possible or in the summer.
Pochettino is currently in charge of PSG, but there have been reports that the Argentine is unhappy at the Parc des Princes.
The 49-year-old has been staying in a hotel in Paris while his family remains in London, implying that the manager is not really settled in Paris.
However, it has been questioned whether Pochettino is prepared to forego working alongside Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar in order to resolve the problem at the Theatre of Dreams.
PSG are nine points clear at the top of the table. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
