It’s no secret that Ed Woodward wants current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to be the next Manchester United manager, however he has a shortlist of potentials just in case.

A surprise addition to that list is Marco Rose, who is the manager of Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg, according to The Sun. 

Also on the list are a few more expected names, such as Zinedine Zidane, Laurent Blanc, and of course, current interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Marco Rose has risen to prominence after taking Red Bull Salzburg to the Austrian title in his first season as manager.

They’re flying high once again this season, topping the table as we head into 2019 with 15 wins from 18 games and no defeats. They’re currently a massive 14 points clear of second place. 

He’s also made a name for himself on the European stage in 2018, by taking the club to the semi-final of the Europa League before being knocked out by Marseille. 

They’re still going strong in the competition this season too, topping the group which contained RB Leipzig, Celtic, and Rosenborg. They will face Club Brugge in the next round.

Mauricio Pochettino was Sir Alex Ferguson’s choice for the job even back when Jose Mourinho was appointed back in 2016. 

They have already reportedly made moves for him to join at the end of the season, but may have to pay up to £40million to get him. Plus, they may be facing opposition from Real Madrid.
