Zizou to the Rescue: Man United Considers Appointing Zidane After Solskjaer's Dismissal, Media Says
He and his family currently reside in Spain and it is believed that the Frenchman is not good at English. Despite the fact that he began his coaching career just five years ago, he has quickly joined the list of the most successful managers. During his time at Real Madrid, he won 10 trophies, including two La Liga titles, and three gold medals in the UEFA Champions League.
According to the Athletic, if the Red Devils fail to persuade Zidane, they will consider holding talks with Julen Lopetegui, the current manager of Sevilla. Although the Spaniard had an unsuccessful stay at Real Madrid in 2018, when he was fired after 14 matches in charge, he went on to win the UEFA Europa League with Sevilla in the 2019/20 season and won silver medals in the tournament the following year. This season, the club has enjoyed a successful start in La Liga and is currently sharing first place in the table with Real Sociedad.
Earlier on Sunday, Manchester United announced its decision to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who had been at the helm of the club since 2018.
"It is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision. While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they should not obscure all the work he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success. Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts as manager and our very best wishes for the future", the club said in a statement.
