Manchester United have contacted former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti over potentially replacing Louis Van Gaal, according to reports.
Van Gaal’s record as a United manager isn’t bad at all, it is the lack of flare and inability to score goals that is driving the fans and critics alike to call for the Dutchman’s reign to be terminated at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal’s United are currently 3 points off the top of the premier league table in 4th place while the team is one win away from being assured of a last 16 place in the Champions league, although they’ve exited the Capital one cup via penalty shootout at Old Trafford to championship side Middlesbrough.
Assistant manager, Ryan Giggs is been touted as Van Gaal’s successor, United could move for a big name coach so as to avoid the debacle of another ‘’David Moyes episode.’’
Carlo Ancelotti is certainly a name that fits the bill; the Italian has been a winner everywhere he has coached, AC Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Paris St. Germain are notable clubs the Italian has coached, winning the UEFA Champions league with both AC Milan and Real Madrid; delivering the La-Decimal to Real Madrid in the process, the Scudetto, the English Premier League crown at Stamford bridge and the FA cup, the French Ligue 1 title with Paris St. German.
It is evident that a club as revered as Manchester United needs a coach who’s Curriculum Vitae is as rich as that of Carlo Ancelotti; and with the financial backing and spending power that United now possess, the Italian is capable of returning United to the glory days while also giving the fans the spectacle they so much long for.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
