Will Brendan Rodgers replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer At Manchester United?

Will Brendan Rodgers replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ?

The latest rumours about Manchester United are that Brendan Rodgers is linked to them.

 This does not come as a surprise because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure. 

The board gave Ole three matches to prove himself. Against Tottenham Hotspurs the team played very well. But against Atalanta, they struggled until Ronaldo scored the last-minute goal to equalise the scoreline.

Manchester United also lost against rivals Manchester City. Likely, the board will not give Ole more chances. 

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is now linked to the club. Earlier Antonio Conte was also tipped towards United but Spurs appointed him.

How will Brendan Rodgers make changes to Manchester United?

With Leicester City, Brendan Rodgers uses a formation of 4-2-3-1. This implies a possession-based system with extra support to the defence.

Manchester United need to sign at least one or two good players. If Brendan Rodgers will come then he would not have much money to spend. The board backed Ole to sign Ronaldo, Varane and Sancho but not a CDM.

The club might also let go of some players but it depends on many factors. Rodgers has a reputation for making the best out of whichever players he has. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not used Jesse Lingard and Donny Van De Beek at all.

Brendan Rodgers can use Donny Van De Beek as number 6 or 8 and Jesse Lingard as a winger. Unlike Ole, Rodgers would give them a chance to prove themselves.

Jamie Vardy is the most impressive player for Leicester over the years. But Wilfred Ndidi is also reputed as well. 

Wilfred Ndidi.

As of last season, Ndidi had 98 successful tackles out of 137. He also had made 87 per cent successful passes and had an xA of 1.23. (Source: Infogol). 

The Nigerian international does not play a key role in the offence. His job is to enable Tielemans and Maddison to get the ball more frequently. 

Ndidi’s main role is to protect the backline and he does that efficiently. Initially, he started as a centre-back but is now a defensive midfielder.

If Brendan Rodgers comes to Manchester United, he will try for Wilfred Ndidi. The club is in desperate need of a good defensive midfielder.
