Former star expresses interest in managing Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reigns of Manchester united following the sacking of Jose Mourinho earlier this week.

Although Solskjaer has been appointed as the interim manager, reports suggest that their main target is Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine has been managing Spurs since the 2013-14 season, after his move from Southampton, and has done a wonderful job there. Under Pochettino, Spurs have managed to finish in the top four more often than not.

Pochettino has also been responsible for unearthing some talents like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier among others. However, quite surprisingly, former Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov said that he would like to manage his former side one day in the future.

Like me, he [Solskjaer] is an ex-football player for a big club and he has got the break that he needed,” Berbatov told Betfair.

“I am curious because I have been part of Manchester United, and some day I want to be a manager. I’ll need that break too at some point.

“There are only a few ‘chosen ones’ who start off at big clubs – Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane both had lesser roles at Barcelona and Real Madrid before taking the reins to great success – but Ole has earned this opportunity through his good work in Norway with Molde and coaching at United.

“Who knows, one day it might be me in charge at Old Trafford. I am doing my badges now and my ambitions are high.”

He also said that he would like to begin his managerial career with one of the smaller clubs in English football.

“I’d like to start my managerial career in England,” he added.

“My heart is in the Premier League. I can honestly say that when you’ve played there your heart stays there even if you are physically elsewhere. This is my main goal but you never know you may need to start somewhere small and work your way up.

“As I said, my ambition is big – I am doing my badges, visiting clubs to see how they work, updating my knowledge constantly. When the time is right the moment will show itself.”

Author’s take

Dimitar Berbatov was an absolutely wonderful player and a huge fan favorite during his time at Manchester United. And if his managerial skills are anything like his playing ones, the United faithful would love to have him back at Old Trafford.
