Former Liverpool midfielder, Jamie Redknapp, has questioned why Manchester United did not pursue Antonio Conte.
The Red Devils were close to sacking manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after their 5-0 loss to Liverpool this season, but stuck with him, and went on to defeat Tottenham 3-0.
That game led to the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo at Spurs, where Conte took over.
United eventually sacked Solskjaer and replaced him with Ralf Rangnick.
Redknapp told Sky Sports after United’s 1-0 home loss to Wolves on Monday: “Why they didn’t get Antonio Conte when they could have done. They need someone like him.
“If you’re only there until the end of the season, you’re in there naked. The way he’s going now he won’t get another two years.
“If he wants to be there long-term he’s got a lot of decisions to make. There are a lot of players that he’s trying to shoehorn into the team.
“The ball should have got man of the match for Man United today because it had to do an incredible job to stay out there because everyone was given it away. When you look at it right now, they’re miles off it.”
