It’s safe to say that Manchester United have failed to replace the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, since he resigned as manager in 2013.

It’s been almost a decade since Ferguson’s departure, but United haven’t gotten a manager they can trust for the long term.

David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and now Ralf Rangnick. None of these managers have proven they can bring success to the club.

Rangnick’s interim experiment will wind up at the end of the season, and the club will be left with a huge decision to make.

Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are the two names to have been linked with the Manchester United job, and club legend Roy Keane has warned that the club must get it right this time.

“Huge decision for United over the next few months,” Keane told Sky Sports. ‘They’ve got to get it right [the managerial appointment]. They’ve got to get the right manager to come into the club.

“They’ve chopped and changed, recruitment obviously hasn’t been good enough, there’s been problems all over the club at board level, there’s been changes, again a new chief executive coming in.

“But the next manager – they’ve got to get that right. It’s one of the hugest decisions in Man Utd’s history.

“If they don’t get it right…we know they are so far behind Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea. They have to get it right [the manager].

“Who that man is, I don’t know. But they’ve got a huge, huge decision.”
