Journalist Andy Mitten reports that Manchester United was due to talk to Rudi Garcia about being engaged as interim coach for the first team. Representatives of the “Red Devils” were to meet the former Olympique Lyonnais coach ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Villarreal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was dismissed from his position as Manchester United’s first team coach after Saturday’s game against Watford. The Norwegian’s duties have been taken over by his assistant Michael Carrick, who is expected to lead the Red Devils until a new temporary coach is brought in or a coach is hired to spend the next few years at Old Trafford.
Recent media reports suggested Manchester United were to view Ernesto Valvedre as interim coach.
Journalist Andy Mitten revealed that The Red Devils were to interview Rudi Garcia, who in May this year parted ways with the French Olympique Lyonnais. The coach was to meet with Manchester United officials before Tuesday’s clash with Villarreal.
Garcia’s teams try to play dynamically and offensively. The coach has won the title of French Manager of the Year three times in the past. Garcia is described by former co-workers as a charismatic leader who helps his charges reach the football top.
The former Lyon coach is mainly known for youth development. Garcia has helped the development of players such as Eden Hazard, Lucas Digne and Gervinho – Lille; Alessandro Florenzi and Kostas Manolas – AS Roma; Camara – Marseille; Maxence Caqueret, Maxwell Cornet and Houssem Aouar – Lyon.
