Former West Brom attacker, Kevin Phillips has told Manchester United that Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel would be the best coach to manage the club.
Man United temporarily put Ralf Rangnick in charge of the team following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last November.
And Philips believes Man United would be daft not to appoint Tuchel if they have the opportunity to do so.
“I think there are so many options out there for Man United, whoever they decide to go for. With the situation at Chelsea now, if Manchester United have any opportunity or any sniff that they could get Tuchel in at Old Trafford, if there’s a chance, I think you would be daft not to do it,” Phillips told Football Insider’s Dylan Childs.
“With his pedigree, with what he’s done and achieved, I think it would be a really good fit. Maybe they can take a slight advantage with what is going on at Chelsea.
“He’s certainly got to be on their list. Man United are one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’ve always said their next appointment has to be right. It has to be right to take them on their next journey to the next level, to start competing,” he added.
I am missing it – Wenger hints at return to football management
Legendary former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has admitted he misses the “intensity” of being in the dugout.
The Frenchman also claimed his gut is telling him to make a return to management.
The 72-year-old stepped down at the Emirates in 2018 after 22 years in charge.
Since that time, Wenger has not managed any professional outfit either club or international level.
Wenger has managed over 1,700 professional games in his career and compared his absence from the dugout to someone coming off drugs.
“I spent 40 seasons in the dugout and if I listen to my guts, I would still do it.
“You know, I can contribute in a different way. I’m still missing the intensity of it. I’m still vulnerable. I’m like a guy who’s off drugs.
“I think as well I can contribute in a different way,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS.
