Erik ten Hag endured the worst start for a Man United manager in over a century, with defeats to both Brighton and Brentford. However, their form has turned around since, other than getting hammered at their arch rivals Manchester City.


Paddy’s already seen enough of the Dutchman, paying out on all bets placed before the Brentford game on the former Ajax coach to be the first Premier League manager of the season to leave his position. Sure, that might not have quite gone to plan but it’s already got us thinking about who could be the next man to ruin his career and reputation at Old Trafford? And can they do it any quicker than ETH?

Paddy’s trusty traders are here to help you separate the wheat from the chaff and they’ve priced up the runners and riders as to who might take a sip from the Man Utd Manager poisoned chalice…

Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino

Former Tottenham boss and Paris St-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino didn’t seem to enjoy managing the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi, spending much of his time in the French capital seemingly on the brink of being sacked if they didn’t beat ESTAC or Brest 5-0. His family is still based in England and all indications are he’d like to come back to the Premier League.

Zinedine Zidane

More of an ego manager than a football manager. Zinedine Zidane feels like the boss-level Solskjaer and had great success at Real Madrid. He was less effective in his last stint there but he could do well with United’s bottomless resources and star names. He might be holding out for the France national team job after the World Cup though.

Graham Potter

Even if new Chelsea boss Graham Potter wins the Champions League this year he could well be gone by the time Ten Hag’s time at United is up. Maybe by then he’ll have earned his stripes at a big club, enough to interest the board at Old Trafford.

Brendan Rodgers

Former Liverpool manager and current Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has his sides playing great football and they often overachieve, but he is perhaps running out of steam at the King Power? How would the United faithful react to an ex-Kopite running their club?

Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate

The current England manager will need a shedful of M&S waistcoats to distract from the shambles likely facing him on the Old Trafford pitch if he takes over at the Theatre of Dreams any time soon. Of course, he already has quite a lot on his plate with a World Cup months away and all his Christmas shopping to fit in before it kicks off, but a New Year’s resolution to turn around this ailing giant can’t be ruled out.

Diego Simeone

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone seems like a permanent fixture in the Spanish capital and it’s hard to imagine him prowling any other touchline in his trademark black suit. However, there are consistent rumours of his possible exit and he features prominently on Paddy’s traders’ long list to take on a new challenge.
