Manchester United’s Managerial Dilemma: Evaluating Southgate, De Zerbi, and Frank

Gareth Southgate is being considered as one of three potential successors to Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford, with Manchester United actively evaluating their options.

Ten Hag’s tenure at Man United has been tumultuous, prompting new minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe to explore managerial replacements for the upcoming summer.

Ratcliffe and Ineos are evaluating three managers: Southgate, Roberto De Zerbi of Brighton, and Thomas Frank of Brentford.

Sources suggest that De Zerbi is drawing considerable attention, with reported interest from clubs like Chelsea, Barcelona, and Liverpool.UK Government Sets Sights on Hosting Ryder Cup: Golf Courses Gear Up for Historic Event

Despite Southgate’s status as an outsider due to his absence from club football since his departure from Middlesbrough in 2009, he remains a viable candidate. His decision regarding his future with England beyond Euro 2024 is still pending.

Southgate’s close professional relationship with Dan Ashworth, soon-to-be sporting director at Man United, could play a significant role, given their past collaboration at the FA.

While England’s UEFA coefficient might allow for a fifth-place finish, Champions League qualification seems unlikely for United, who trail Tottenham by six points and have played one fewer game.

The club acknowledges that Ten Hag’s reputation remains strong in Europe, particularly in Germany, where clubs like Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, and Vfb Stuttgart may vie for his services at the end of the season.
