Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville expressed his scepticism about Zinedine Zidane becoming the successor of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The Norwegian manager is under pressure after producing a flurry of bad results in recent months, with the Red Devils having managed only two victories in their last seven games in all competitions and lost four of them. 

Speaking on Instagram live Neville put his thoughts about Zidane potentially going to replace Solskjaer as Manchester United manager and said that he is not sure about the rumour. The defender also said that these are all speculation and there is not much credibility about this news. 

The former England International further claimed that he is not sure whether changing the manager will turn the fortune around in favour of the club. The Red Devils have already added too many attacking options at their disposal and the former Real Madrid boss might also struggle to find the right balance. He said:

“Will Zidane come? Not sure, We’re just speculating now, throwing names in the air. It’s like when you’re making soup and you taste it having put a load of ingredients in and it’s not particularly great and then you just start adding stuff thinking it’s going to make it better.”

Will Zidane be the right person to replace Solskjaer as the next Manchester United manager? 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had enough time to convince the Old Trafford faithful that he is the right manager to bring the glory days back at the club. However, despite being in charge for almost three years, the Norwegian hasn’t been able to implement an identity in his playing style. 

The manager has also shown indecisiveness in his decision making which has cost the team in crucial matches and also displayed inefficiency to make the most out of his squad. 

On the other hand, Zidane has a way better resume than the current Manchester United boss. The French boss guided Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League glories and also won two La Liga titles. So, bringing in a manager of this calibre should be the right decision for the Red Devils hierarchy if they want to become successful in the future.
