Man Utd board split on Conte credentials

Manchester United's board is split on hiring Antonio Conte to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Sun says after crisis talks at the club, the Norwegian WILL be in the dugout for Saturday's trip to Tottenham.

But another chastening defeat could change that, although the board are undecided on who they want to replace former player Solskjaer.

Italian Conte is the bookies favourite to take the job and has the backing of some United chiefs.

But it's uncertain whether the 52-year-old would represent the famous 'United way' were he to take over - and that is causing a divide in the club's hierarchy.

Conte has a reputation for a well-organised and disciplined style of play - rather than the fluid, attacking football Manchester United fans are accustomed to.
