Brendan Rodgers

Having distanced himself from the Old Trafford during the week Rodgers now finds himself the current favourite to be the new United boss.

Rodgers led Leicester to FA Cup glory last season but it’s been a tricky campaign for the Foxes this time around – they currently sit 12th with four wins and 15 points on their tally.

If United do come knocking, you can be sure Rodgers will be more than interested.

Next Manchester United Manager Odds (Prices from Paddy Power)

  • 3/1 – Brendan Rodgers
  • 7/2 – Michael Carrick
  • 4/1 – Zinedine Zidane
  • 6/1 – Mauricio Pochettino

Odds correct at 21/11/21

Michael Carrick

Carrick has been put in temporary charge and with United looking for an interim boss until the end of the season, he could well hold the fort for a few months.

A positive showing would enhance his chances of being offered the role permanently but would the United fans welcome Carrick’s appointment?

Zinedine Zidane

Zidane would likely be the choice for most United fans and the 49-year-old has an incredibly impressive CV.

He became the first coach in history to win three consecutive Champions League titles when he led Real Madrid to success in 2015-2018.

Mauricio Pochettino

Pochettino is currently in charge of PSG but the United bosses have never hidden their admiration for him.

United could have got their man in 2019 but if they do swoop for Poch now they would have to hand over some hefty compensation to PSG.
