Cristiano Ronaldo is in favor of Luis Enrique becoming Manchester United’s new manager. Rob Dorsett from Sky Sports News informs about the case.
Manchester United’s poor stance in recent weeks has caused Ole Gunnar Solskjær to leave the job. His place will be temporarily taken by Michael Carrick, who will be in office while the search for the Norwegian successor is taking place.
The castellate of his position should come as no surprise to anyone. Despite the good previous season and the strengthening of the team with players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphaël Varane, the attitude of the “Red Devils” left a lot to be desired.
After twelve matches played, the team from Old Trafford has already lost 12 points to the leading Chelsea, which means that the chances of winning the championship are now negligible.
The name market with potential successors was launched almost immediately after the 48-year-old left. So far, such personalities as Zinédine Zidane, Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers have been mentioned. Now another candidate has joined this group.
It is Luis Enrique, as reported on Twitter by Rob Dorsett from Sky Sports News. According to the journalist, the leader of the team, Cristiano Ronaldo, is to support such a solution.
The Portuguese has not had the opportunity to cooperate with the former FC Barcelona coach so far, but you can see that he appreciates his workshop and believes that it is under his leadership that the team should get back on track.
However, there is a problem with the whole thing. Unlike Zidane, for example, the 51-year-old now has a job. He is responsible for the results of the Spanish national team, with which he recently advanced to next year’s World Cup. His contract with the federation is valid until December 31, 2022.
Will Enrique decide to leave the national team to work in the Premier League? We will find out soon. Undoubtedly, this is an interesting option for the runners-up in England. In this case, we are dealing with a coach who has triumphed in the Champions League.
