New Surprising Candidate for the Manchester United Managerial Position

While Erik ten Hag remains in the hot seat, Manchester United has launched a search for a new manager for next season. After considering the profile of Gareth Southgate, a new alternative has emerged to lead the Red Devils.

This summer, a major reshuffling of coaches is likely to take place. While FC Barcelona decided to stick with Xavi Hernández, Liverpool set their sights on Arne Slot, and Xabi Alonso announced he would stay at least one more year at the helm of Bayer Leverkusen.

Now, the situation remains just as unstable for other big names in Europe. Thus, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and even AC Milan are uncertain about who will be in their dugout next year. This delicate situation is troublesome for these giants, who always prefer to plan everything in advance.

The situation is even more precarious at Manchester United, as Erik ten Hag continues to weaken due to poor results. Hence, the leaders are advancing their pawns with certain candidates who already seem interested in the position.

A week ago, Fichajes reported that the most successful club on the English Channel had chosen Gareth Southgate. The England manager enjoys great internal popularity, although it seems he is focused on his duties for Euro 2024.

Kieran McKenna has time on his side

Indeed, even if the interest were mutual between the two parties, United’s leaders would be concerned about when Southgate could take over the team. At best, he wouldn’t be available until mid-July.

Eager to have a coach present from the start of the preseason, this situation does not particularly please the higher-ups at Old Trafford, according to Fichajes. As a result, the name of Kieran McKenna is gaining strength in the last few days. A coach who has had a successful season with Ipswich Town.

After securing promotion to the Premier League with the Suffolk entity, his work is being positively evaluated by the 2022-2023 Carabao Cup champions. According to what Fichajes have learned, initial contacts between his representatives and United have already taken place.

A familiar face at United, it seems the manager would be very excited about the possibility of taking the reins of this British titan. Being available to join their ranks as soon as the current campaign ends, this factor could greatly boost McKenna’s candidacy in Manchester.
