Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Laurent Blanc should be the next Manchester United manager.

Manchester United are looking to appoint a new permanent boss after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday following a dismal run of five defeats in the last seven Premier League games.

Pochettino has emerged as the frontrunner for the Manchester United job but Berbatov believes Blanc, a former Manchester United player and also former PSG manager, should be given the job.

“Laurent Blanc is an interesting candidate,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“He’s an ex-United player, who won everything, has managed PSG and France, has the respect of the players and he has the charisma and composure required to manage United.”

Blanc played for United for two seasons at the end of his career and won 11 major trophies, including three Ligue 1 titles, during three seasons in charge of PSG.
