The Manchester United board are yet to identify a suitable replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, should the Norwegian be sacked, according to Manchester Evening News.

The 48 year old is under immense pressure to turn things around for the club, after a string of uninspiring performance in and out of the league this season.

With six defeats in twelve games, United look a rather disjointed team, and calls are increasing for a new coach to be employed. Solskjaer also appears to have lost the dressing room, as some senior players allegedly no longer have faith in his leadership.

But as much as United would want to fire Solskjaer if things don’t get better, MEN reports that the club will not let him go yet, with no replacement in sight.

Former Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane, and Ex-Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte have both been ruled out of the running for the job, with their interest reportedly elsewhere (Conte is now at Tottenham).

Meanwhile, Solskjaer is still in charge of things at Old Trafford, and he’s expected to lead the team when we face Watford after the international break.
