Manchester United’s (Manchester United) most wanted manager is not someone else, but Gareth Southgate (54), who is leading the England national team.

United, led by Eric ten Haag (54), defeated “local rivals” and English Premier League (EPL) champions Manchester City 2-1 in the 2023-2024 English Football Association (FA) Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on Sunday (May 25).

It was United’s 13th FA Cup triumph after finishing eighth in the league. It also miraculously qualified them for next season’s UEFA Europa League (UEL).

It was a title that had been on the minds of the controversial Van Gaal. After winning the Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) last season, he became the first United manager since Sir Alex Ferguson to win back-to-back titles.

However, Van Gaal’s future remains uncertain. 카지노사이트 The club’s hierarchy, led by new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe, will meet with the board of directors to discuss whether to keep Van Gaal in charge next season.

There have been some voices of support for Van Gaal within the club.

However, according to a report in the UK’s Mirror on Monday, citing Sky Sports’ Back Pages podcast, the club’s internal preference is for Southgate to manage the England national team.

United have been linked to Brentford manager Thomas Frank, Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino, 파워볼실시간 Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna.

But it is Southgate, who will lead England at UEFA Euro 2024 starting on June 14, who some of the key figures in Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS group want most.

Realistically, it is unlikely that United will land Southgate this summer. England’s final group game in Group C, which also includes Slovenia, Denmark, and Serbia, is on June 26th. What’s more, England is one of the favorites to win the tournament.

Even if England were to make an early exit from the group, Southgate would still need a break. It would be nearly impossible for him to focus on the England national team and then take charge of Man United.

Southgate has drawn a clear line in the sand when linked with United.

He said in March: “I think there are two things in my position. “One is that my job as England manager is basically to focus on Euro 2024,” he emphasized in March.

He added: “The second is that United have a manager and I think it’s always disrespectful to disrespect the manager when he’s in charge. I’m the president of the League Managers Association (LMA), so I don’t have time for that,” he added.

In particular, he added: “I’m not going to talk to anyone else and I never have. I don’t know if that answers your question because I’ve been doing this for eight years and I don’t enjoy talking to other people while I’m at work,” he cut in.

In the end, if United want Southgate, they need a manager who can take over for the next season or so. Rather than bringing in a new manager, it might be better to let van Gaal stay on for another season. 실시간 바카라사이트 Ten Haag’s contract runs through the summer of 2025, so he’ll be out of a job at the end of next season.

United may have to “cry and eat mustard” to get the manager they don’t like but want more than anyone else. We’ll find out this week or next week what United’s choice will be.
