Posted by

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be in charge of Manchester United when the Red Devils visit Vicarage Road to face Watford on Saturday.

The Norwegian has come under immense pressure in the past few weeks, following his side’s poor run in the league.

United have picked up only four points from their last six games, which includes a crushing 5-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool and a derby loss against Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Antonio Conte was rumoured to be an option to replace the former Cardiff City manager, before he took the Tottenham Hotspur job. Zinedine Zidane continues to be linked to the Premier League side.

Friday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo explains Qatari side Al-Sadd want the Frenchman to be Xavi Hernández’s successor.

The 49-year-old has been without a job since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season and he doesn’t intend to return to the bench soon.

It’s claimed the former Los Blancos manager has ‘turned down’ the option to manage in the Premier League.

This is when the Old Trafford club get a mention as the newspaper states Manchester United ‘tempted him to replace’ Solskjaer, but Zidane ‘turned down’ the approach.

Zidane’s first option is to manage France and he would also not rule out taking the Paris Saint-Germain job, if it’s made available to him.
