Graham Potter to be next Manchester United manager

Next Manchester United Manager

The Dutch manager has failed to build on a promising debut season in the dugout with disciplinary issues plaguing his time in charge, while the proposed shakeup this summer is expected to stretch to the manager’s role.

Radcliffe and Sir Dave Brailsford are overhauling the off-field structures at the club with Dan Ashworth expected to join in the summer, and his influence can be seen in the betting markets to take over this summer.

Assessing the Candidates

Gareth Southgate - 5/2

Southgate is the surprise man at the top of the markets after eight years in charge of the England national team, but also without a club job since he was relegated with Middlesbrough in 2009.

The former Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Boro centre-back has undoubtedly done a good job with England, taking an unfancied side and leading them to the World Cup semi-finals, the quarter-finals and to second place in the Euros, and he has succeeded in overhauling a negative culture around the side and bringing through a talented generation of players.

Given that he has worked closely with Dan Ashworth at St George’s Park while the technical director was with England, on paper Southgate would appear a strong candidate, especially as this summer could spell a natural end to his time in the England role while his statesmanlike persona should fit in seamlessly to the politics at Old Trafford.

However there have been question marks raised over his in-game management and for all the promise shown in recent years, it would go down as a disappointment should he fail to lift any silverware with England.

Graham Potter - 4/1

Potter is another who benefits from having worked with Ashworth, who is expected to assume a role at Old Trafford this summer following a period of gardening leave at Newcastle.

The two worked together at Brighton, where Potter succeeded in identifying talent and bringing it through to perform in the Premier League while also maintaining their top flight status, and he is widely perceived as one of the more promising young coaches in the country.

Potter’s first taste of management at a big club did not go to plan - he barely lasted half a season at Chelsea - but their struggles since have put his achievements into perspective, and the setup Radcliffe is putting in place at Old Trafford should be better suited to Potter’s talents, which lie on the training pitch.

However Potter’s appointment would undoubtedly be seen as a long-term move, and it is highly unlikely that anyone would be able to last more than two seasons without evidence of being able to break into the top four on a regular basis.

Julian Nagelsmann - 9/1

It looks as though Germany manager Nagelsmann could be set for a sensational return to the Bayern Munich hotseat this summer, after he steps aside from the national job.

Nagelsmann only departed the Bayern role last year despite holding a 71% win rate but wasn’t exactly popular at the time in Bavaria, and his stock has hardly soared in his time with Germany who have struggled for any consistency under his watch.

He is however, only 36 years old and widely considered to be one of the best young managers in the world, and as one of the highest profile managers in the world with a track record of winning, he fits the bill for Manchester United - young, hungry and with a good reputation.

His name has been linked with a number of big jobs in recent years however and a return to Munich looks almost nailed on at this stage.

Thomas Tuchel - 10/1

With Nagelsmann likely heading into Bayern, Tuchel is the man on the way out having seen his side fail to win the Bundesliga for the first time since 2012.

It has not been Tuchel’s finest hour - though he could offset that with European success - given that he was given Harry Kane this season in an attempt to blow the competition out of the water, but as a Champions League winning coach his stock remains very high.

Tuchel doesn’t exactly fit the bill of a traditional Manchester United manager and with the new management coming in it would be a surprise to see them look for a short-term option, but it feels certain that he will be back in the Premier League at some stage.

Few managers have the charisma and confidence to fill the manager’s role at Old Trafford but Tuchel would be one of them and he is available this summer, so odds of 10/1 aren’t bad value but it would feel an ill fit at this stage of the rebuild in Manchester.
