Man Utd chiefs step up manager search

Manchester United chiefs are stepping up plans to find a new manager.

The Athletic report that Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag, Luis Enrique and Julen Lopetegui will all be considered for the job.

United will look to tick several boxes with their new appointment but one factor will be candidates who have experience of working at major European clubs.

All four names mentioned have such experience, with Pochettino presently manager of Paris Saint-Germain having formerly managed Tottenham to a Champions League final.

Ten Hag has won two league and cup doubles with Ajax while Luis Enrique won the Champions League and various domestic honours with Barcelona before taking on the Spain job.

Lopetegui has the likes of Porto, Spain, Real Madrid and Sevilla on his CV. All four are currently in a managerial post and Pochettino is the only one with Premier League experience.
