Manchester United will appoint a caretaker manager to succeed the sacked Jose Mourinho on Saturday before their Premier League game with Cardiff.

Former Red Devils striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is one name into consideration to assume control for the rest of the summer season – as the club seem to emphasise having a technical director of football and a brand new permanent supervisor in the summer.

Who do they need and exactly what do they need?

United’s wishlist is

  • Get the most out of United’s big money signings and generate an identifiable style.
  • Create players that are young.
  • Understand the philosophy, culture and core values of this club including its assaulting customs.
  • Create an optimistic environment with both staff and players.
  • Work inside a brand new structure, including reporting into a technical director of football.

Who might that be?
