Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes Zinedine Zidane would be the perfect managerial appointment for Manchester United.

Manchester United are on the hunt to find their next permanent manager to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and are aiming to have one in place before the end of the season.

Ralf Rangnick was appointed as interim manager until the end of the season.

“I have to admit it’s a hard position to be in (for Rangnick), especially when you are an interim manager,” Saha told William Hill.

“Some players will think you don’t have all the cards in your hands, so it’s not easy, it’s really not easy. I would like to see Zidane appointed in the summer.

“He’s such a big figure and there’s no question about the respect he will receive. He’ll have the time to get things in order. The guy’s won Champions Leagues for fun.

“And he wasn’t helped by (Real) Madrid being the toughest position for a manager. Everyone can recognise that the Spanish league is very hard. I really think he has all the tools but whether he will go to United I’m not sure.”
