Man Utd consider Julian Nagelsmann as Mauricio Pochettino alternative

Manchester United have reportedly added RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann to their list of managers who will come under consideration if they decide to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer is fighting for his job again after back-to-back defeats this week put him on the back foot.

The Norweigan faces a crucial match with Everton on Saturday and will hope to still be in charge after the upcoming international break.

The break represents an ideal time for United to dismiss Solskjaer and bring in a new manager to start with the home fixture against West Brom on October 21.

The Daily Star understands Mauricio Pochettino is the favourite to become the next United manager and has already been sounded out over whether he would take the job.

But according to ESPN, Nagelsmann, a rising star in German football, has caught the attention of the United board through his work at Leipzig.

Nagelsmann, 33, took Leipzig to the Champions League semi-finals last season and his philosophy and work with young players have impressed observers.

Meanwhile, former United midfielder Paul Ince has called on the club to remain patient with Solskjaer.

He told talkSPORT 2: “They’ve gone through David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, and now Solskjaer. If they’re going to keep changing managers, they’re not going to get anywhere.

“That’s why we talk about Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

“But at the same time, you can’t have Manchester United languishing 15th in the table, not winning games. I think they’ve got to be patient.

“They’ve just got to get a result, they’re capable of doing it; the PSG and Leipzig games were good, so it is in them to play well.”
