Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked as Manchester United boss on Sunday morning, less than 24 hours after the 4-1 defeat to Watford.
Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told the Manchester United hierarchy who he wants as Solskjaer’s replacement.
According to Sky Sports via Goal, Cristiano Ronaldo wants Luis Enrique to be Manchester United’s new manager.
Ronaldo, 36, has reportedly told the club’s hierarchy that he prefers Enrique as Manchester United boss to his former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
Enrique has been leading Spain since late 2019, and reached the semi-finals of this summer’s Euro 2020 tournament, before bowing out to eventual winners Italy on penalties.
The Spain boss is set to be considered as a possible replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer alongside Zinedine Zidane and Erik ten Hag.
Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino have also been linked, but both men are considered long shots for the role.
