Manchester United has finally sacked first team manager Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese leave the club after two-and-half years in charge. He delivered 3 trophies which include FA Community Shield, League Cup, and UEFA Europa League. However, the team has struggled to get results this season. The Red Devils are currently 6th on the table with 26 points after 17 matches. It represents the worst start for the club since 1990/91 season. The search for a new boss has commenced and these five Coaches are leading the race according to credible sources.

France 1998 World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane is also being considered for the vacant coaching role at Manchester United. The Frenchman enjoyed three successful years at Real Madrid after taking over when Rafa Benitez was sacked.
Zizou lack of experience might work against him but there is no doubt he has the pedigree. He became the first manager to win UEFA Champions League for three seasons in a row. He also delivered La Liga trophy, UEFA Super Cup, Spanish Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in a record two-and-half years. He might be tempted to test his development level with this opportunity.
4. Antonio Conte- Ex-Chelsea & Juventus Coach

Former Chelsea and Juventus manager Antonio Conte is also a consideration. The Italian has won four League titles with both Clubs. He also defeated Manchester United to help the Blues lift FA Cup in 2017/18 season. He also managed the Italian national team. He worked with Paul Pogba when he arrived from Old Trafford in 2012. However, he might not be ready to sign a short-term deal.

Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the third hot favorite to take over on an interim basis until the end of the season. The 45-year-old Norwegian played as a striker for the Red Devils from 1996 to 2007 scoring 126 goals in 366 matches.
