Maradona ready to replace Solskjaer as Manchester United manager

Argentina legend, Diego Maradona, has called on Manchester United to employ him as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s replacement.

After Jose Mourinho was dismissed in December, United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, decided to give Solskjaer a contract until the end of the campaign.The Norwegian hit the ground running at Old Trafford by winning his first eight games, while he also guided United to a remarkable comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

However, since that 3-1 victory in Paris on March 6, United won just two matches and lost eight of their remaining 12 games in all competitions.

Solskjaer was given a three-year contract at the end of March and is now tasked with a major rebuild of his United squad, who will play in the Europa League next season.

But Maradona is ready to step in if the Premier League side need a new man.

“If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it.

“Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long.

“But now I have to say Man City. I know you shouldn’t change like that but it’s because of Kun [Aguero]. We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team,” Maradona told FourFourTwo.
