Reports have suggested that former United players Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Laurent Blanc are amongst the leading names to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The Portuguese was relieved of his duties at Old Trafford on Tuesday morning following the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at the weekend. According to The Independent, Solskjaer and Blanc are amongst the leading names to take over at the club on an interim basis.
Blanc, a former defender, has been out of work since a three-year spell with Paris Saint Germain ended in 2016. He would arrive with an impressive CV having won four Ligue 1 crowns, four Coupe de la Ligue, two Coupe de France and five Trophee des Champions gongs as a manager with the likes of PSG and Bordeaux. However, the Independent suggests that the former French international would have reservations of only penning a short-term deal.
That could potentially leave the door open for Solskjaer, who would be a popular name in the Old Trafford dug out. In ten seasons with the Red Devils, the Norwegian made 366 appearances and scored 126 goals. However, he does have limited managerial experience having enjoyed two spells with Molde, sandwiching a disastrous spell with Cardiff City in the 2013/14 season.
He can be backed at 5/2 with Betfred, whilst Blanc has exactly the same odds.
