Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired after Manchester United’s season came to an end on Saturday when they were trounced 4-1 by Watford.

Rumours and conjecture are already circulating about who would be chosen to succeed Solskjaer, with bookmakers putting a number of well-known names in the running.
Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is the clear favourite to take over at Old Trafford, with Brendan Rodgers, Mauricio Pochettino, and Erik ten Hag also in the running.
We weigh in on the advantages and disadvantages of each of the leading prospects to succeed Solskjaer at United.
