Former Newcastle United manager, Steve Bruce, is reportedly ‘keen’ to take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United’s new manager.

The former Red Devil was sacked as the Magpies manager very recently, following the Saudi takeover of the struggling club.

But Bruce believes he has enough quality to stake a claim to the vacant role at Old Trafford, having recently managed his 1000th game.

United announced Solskjaer’s departure from Old Trafford on Sunday morning, after a disappointing 4-1 defeat to Watford. In his absence, Michael Carrick has been called upon to take charge of our games for the next couple of days, pending when a permanent manager will be appointed.

Former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino, ex- Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers, and Ajax’s Eric ten Hag are also all potential candidates to take over at Old Trafford.
