Manchester United is a club in a crisis and Jose Mourinho is at the center of it all. The question every Red Devil fan is asking is what next. The board has said in the past they are backing the manager but things started going bad in pre-season. According to unconfirmed reports, the Glazer family wants a change soon and the board is considering several names. We have compiled a list of Coaches the board is reportedly looking at to replace Mourinho.

5. Roberto Martinez- Belgium

Belgium head Coach Roberto Martinez is not on the board radar but he has the pedigree to Coach Manchester United now. We all saw what the Belgian Red Devils did in the World Cup. He is a tactical Coach who likes to attack. Red Devils fans will not be thinking about him now but he might actually play the kind of football they want to see at Old Trafford.

4. Ryan Giggs- Wales

All top clubs in Europe have given a chance to their former players and almost all of them have turned out well. Look at Pep Guardiola success at Camp Nou, Zidane at Real Madrid, Simeone at Atletico and even Bayern Munich have appointed their former player Niko Kovac. Manchester United now needs to give a chance to someone who knows what the club is all about. There is nobody out there better than Wales manager Ryan Giggs. He deputized Louis Van Gaal and they won FA Cup together. It is time for Old Trafford to welcome their son.

3. Mauricio Pochetino- Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochetino managed to beat Jose Mourinho side Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford. No other team has actually scored more than 2 goals at the Stadium since Jose Mourinho took over. In fact, only Manchester City (Twice 2-1) and West Brom 1-0 have beaten ‘The Special One’ at home.

The Red Devil board is reportedly considering him. The only challenge is that he signed a contract extension a few months ago. This means Daniel Levy will demand a big compensation to let him go. The second challenge is the lack of success at Spurs. He is yet to deliver any trophy since taking over. The good thing about the Argentine is his work rate and style. A good number of Tottenham players came through the academy. Others were signed for little fees but he has managed to make them stars.
