Manchester United have reached out to former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane on the recommendation of Cristiano Ronaldo, according to El Chiringuito TV.Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been under immense pressure following a winless streak of three games in the Premier League.According to El Chiringuito TV, Manchester United have contacted Zidane in case they decide to sack Solskjaer in the near future.
A host of names have been linked to replace the Norwegian tactician, with Zidane and Antonio Conte being the most high-profile names in the mix.However, if Manchester United want to get the best out of their current squad, Zinedine Zidane would be an ideal candidate.The 49-year-old managed the likes of Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo during a Real Madrid spell which included three consecutive Champions League titles.
The Frenchman was also one of the reasons why Paul Pogba was rumored to be eyeing a move to the Bernabeu.According to Gary Neville, Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Manchester United has indirectly put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure. This is because the manager is now expected to win trophies with the club rather than finish in a Champions League place.
Despite scoring five goals in seven matches across all competitions, Cristiano Ronaldo’s time at Manchester United hasn’t started well following a run of poor team performances.The Red Devils are currently without a league win in three matches. This barren run includes two defeats at the hands of Aston Villa and Leicester City and a 1-1 draw against Everton.
Coincidentally, Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score a goal in any of those three matches. The last time he scored was against West Ham United in mid-September. That also happened to be the last time Manchester United secured all three points from a Premier League game.
