Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a case for Zinedine Zidane to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, per reports.
Under Mourinho, Man United are having their worst start in the Premier League, with United sitting in sixth place and 16 points adrift of table leaders Liverpool.
Although the brass of United have been quiet about the future of Mourinho, it is widely believed they are on the lookout for a better replacement should he failed to qualify for the Champions League.
One name have been thrown into the fray of possible replacement for Mourinho, and that is former Real Madrid boss Zidane.
The French legend surprising called time on his spell with Los Blancos last summer but he has been linked with a move to the Premier League since then.
Wenger believes the former French footballer should work in England.
“Yes [he should], why not? If you want to work at the top, it has to be England nowadays,” claimed Wenger.
“But there are many uncertainties with Brexit and the uncertainty: will the Premier League continue to dominate financially? We’ll know soon.
“England is the only country with six clubs that can fight for the championship.“In all the other countries basically you can say in December who will win the championship and there are some countries, like France, where you can say it in September.”
United will take on Liverpool in a crunch tie on Sunday but Scholes has also lent his voice to the debate of Zidane replacing the Special one.
“Is Zidane the right man though?” Scholes recently asked.
“He went in to Real Madrid who had a group of ready made winners already.
“This is a totally different job he would have to be rebuild confidence with a squad that isn’t quite performing.
“He went to Real Madrid with so many great players, it was still difficult but, this would be a whole rebuilding job.”
