Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester City, has “verbally” accepted to lead Manchester United according to reports from the news website Caughtoffside.
According to the article’s author, the former Liverpool manager wants to take over the team once the season ends, but Manchester United is pushing for him right now.
Rodgers has failed to qualify Leicester City for the UEFA Champions League for the previous two seasons, despite finishing in the top four both times. However, from his time as manager of Liverpool and Celtic, he has a plethora of expertise.
Since United’s humiliation at the hands of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool squad at Old Trafford, Solskjaer’s job has been on the line. Since that encounter, United has only won one game, and that was against a mediocre Tottenham Hotspur side.
After the 13-day international break, the Red Devils will face Watford, and it’s still unknown whether Solskjaer will lead the team.
