Man Utd next manager odds: Six of the most bizarre names on the bookies shortlist if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gets the sack
MANCHESTER UNITED boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure after his team picked up just two wins from their last six games.
Many Red Devils fans are calling for the Norwegian to be sacked… and the bookies are offering odds on some extraordinary names to replace him.
Solskjaer's side struggled to a 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday after leaving Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench.
Legendary Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson questioned the decision in an extraordinary conversation with UFC icon Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The Premier League giants have also suffered shock defeats to Aston Villa, West Ham and Young Boys this term.
Here, SunSport consider the six most bizarre names on the bookies longlist – and whether they can realistically replace Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

KLOPP couldn't ditch Liverpool for United, could he? The German is currently 100/1 to become the next Red Devils boss.
Perhaps the only glimmer of hope Man Utd fans have of luring him to Old Trafford is his existing deal, which expires in June.
But even if Klopp was to leave Anfield at the end of the season, the chances of him joining the struggling giants seem extremly slim.
The ex-Borussia Dortmund boss has always embraced the Liverpudlian culture and the people of Anfield now consider him one of their own.
NEVILLE loves Man Utd as much as anyone and certainly talks a good game – but few people have a worse record in management.
The ex-United defender endured a nightmare four-month spell at Valencia around six years ago, winning just three of his 16 games in charge.
He also struggled as England's assistant manager under Roy Hodgson, masterminding the dreadful 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 campaigns.
Neville is currently 100/1 to replace Solskjaer at Old Trafford… probably not worth a flutter at the bookies.
MOURINHO achieved success at Old Trafford – winning the League Cup and Europa League – yet few Red Devils fans would like to see him return.
The 50/1 candidate remains the last manager to win a trophy at Old Trafford but never looked like winning the Prem during his time in charge.
Since being succeeded by Solskjaer in December 2018, the Portuguese has endured a torrid time at Tottenham and is currently at Roma.
Mourinho now looks a long way from getting another top gig in management as he looks to rebuild his reputation in Italy.
ACCORDING to the bookies, there is more chance of David Moyes returning to Old Trafford then 250/1 candidate Gerrard – and it's easy to see why.
The Liverpool legend is one of the hottest prospects in management and is likely to be Klopp's successor, rather than Solskjaer's.
Gerrard inspired Rangers to their first league title in a decade last term, becoming the man to end Celtic's dominance in Scotland.
But the former England captain is unlikely to entertain the idea of joining United and ruining his legendary status at Anfield.
TWENTY years ago, no one would have put money on Wenger becoming Man Utd's new manager – but a lot has changed since then.
The club's rivalry with Arsenal has faded and so has the 50/1 candidate's relationship with Gunners fans after being hounded out of the club.
Still, he remains a legend at the Emirates and, at 71, looks unlikely to leave his cushy job at Fifa for another crack in the Premier League.
Stranger things have happened, though, not least Rafa Benitez's appointment at Everton this summer. Time is a great healer.
THE appointment we all want to see. Man Utd could do with some experience and legendary manager Warnock has plenty to offer.
The 500/1 candidate is currently in his SEVENTEENTH full-time position at Middlesbrough after spells at Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Leeds.
Warnock even described the Man Utd job as the 'best' when Solskjaer was appointed on a temporary basis in December 2018.
He told the press: "I think it's the best job he will have in his life.
"He can't lose. He'll hold the fort until the end of the season and if he does well, he'll get a couple of years."
And here we are, a couple of years later. Is it now time for Solskjaer to step aside for Warnock? SunSport understands this isn't on the cards.
