Olympic legend Usain Bolt has revealed he would have preferred Manchester United replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Antonio Conte after our poor start to the season.

The Norwegian has come under heavy criticisms as a result of the club’s poor form this season and there have been calls for him to be sacked.

However, despite disappointing 5-0 defeat to Liverpool and another 2-0 defeat to Manchester City, the club hierarchy have decided against sacking him.

Manchester United fan Bolt believes Italian tactician Conte would have been the right choice to replace the Norwegian at Old Trafford given his track record as a title-winning manager and having his team organised.

“I wanted Conte,” Bolt told The National. “He is going to do so well at Spurs. He is going to get them organised.

“He has been at Chelsea – he won a title. He’s been at Inter Milan – he’s won a title. He’s been at Juve – he’s won a title.

“Everywhere he goes, he structures the team so well. In January, he is probably going to get one or two players, then at the end of the season he is probably going to find proper players and bring them in.”
