Ratcliffe could replace ETH at Man Utd with “tactical genius” who’s a master in the UCL

Posted by

Every Manchester United manager since Sir Alex Ferguson left the team has failed to lead the team back to its heyday.

Sadly, it appears like Erik ten Hag, who led the Red Devils to a goal differential of -1 and seventh place in the Premier League right now, will be the next manager to depart.

Even if it’s been said that the Dutchman won’t leave the team until the end of the campaign, Sir Jim Ratcliffe will probably begin his rebuilding process with a new manager in charge.

However, who are the available choices? Well, one stands out in particular because he has a track record of success.

Ratcliffe has created a Man United manager roster.
Ben Jacobs of GiveMeSport claims that Zinedine Zidane may be included on Manchester United’s manager list this summer.

“Zinedine Zidane will almost definitely be on the succession planning list,” said Jacobs. Being placed on the succession planning list does not guarantee that you will hear from anybody or receive a job offer. It just indicates that you are a member of a group of names that are available for investigation. If something changes after that, that list will be reduced.

This was verified in response to a claim via GiveMeSport from the French publication L’Equipe, stating that the former Real Madrid manager would prefer a transfer to Old Trafford over Bayern Munich.

According to reports, Zidane is monitoring both the present state of affairs at Bayern and the Red Devils.

Zidane’s current managerial trajectory
Being recognised by many as one of the greatest players of all time is a highly significant distinction in and of itself, but becoming an exceptional manager is something that very few people do.

In 2013, Zidane began his coaching career at Real Madrid as an assistant manager. A year later, he became the manager of Real Madrid Castilla.

But it wasn’t until January 2016 that he truly blossomed as a coach, taking over as Madrid’s manager and recording one of the most remarkable results in the process.

Zidane’s Real Madrid won an incredible 105 games out of 149 games, losing only 16 of them. They also won three straight Champions League crowns from 2015–16 to 2017–18, demonstrating their dominance in the sport.

The 51-year-old is the epitome of a victor—exactly the kind of manager United needs right now.

The fact that the Frenchman’s favoured formation and system is a 4-3-3, which perfectly complements the current United team, may be one reason he is chosen over other managers.

The midfield trio of Casemiro, Luka Modric, and Toni Kroos was crucial to Los Blancos’ success under Zidane. A midfield trio consisting of Kobbie Mainoo, Bruno Fernandes, and a new defensive midfielder could replicate that success because they had two ball-playing eights and a destroyer behind them.

But in addition to being a “tactical genius,” as analyst Steve McManaman dubbed Zidane, Zidane is also a master man-manager who understands how to bring out the best in every player on the field—a skill that Ten Hag has particularly struggled with this season, with the Jadon Sancho situation serving as a good example.

Furthermore, Zidane’s arrival would undoubtedly eliminate Ten Hag’s attitude of not accepting anything that falls short of Man United’s purported standards. He is fully aware of what it takes to be the manager of a prestigious European team.

The three-time Champions League champion coach would undoubtedly enhance the Red Devils if he were to take over, even though he hasn’t played since 2021. At the very least, he would make sure that the groundwork for success is set, something the Dutch manager isn’t doing at the moment, as evidenced by the team’s performance against Coventry City on Sunday.
