“He commands that instant respect” – Man Utd legend names “best fit” to replace Erik ten Hag

Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has named his ideal pick to replace Erik ten Hag as he expects the Red Devils boss may come under pressure this summer – Zinedine Zidane.

Yorke exclusively told Ladbrokes Fanzone that he could see Zidane being an ideal fit to instantly command respect from these players and do a better job of instilling discipline than Ten Hag has been able to in his time at Old Trafford so far.

Although the former Man Utd treble winner liked what he saw from Ten Hag in his first season as manager, he’s been disappointed with how things seem to have dipped again this term, and he can see the former Ajax boss being under pressure by the end of the campaign.

One issue, Yorke concedes, is he doesn’t see a lot of great options out there for MUFC, but he named Zidane as his preferred pick if there were to be a change in the dugout.

Zidane could command respect from this Man Utd dressing room, says Yorke

“If you were to weigh things up this season, you’ve got to say that if we don’t win the FA Cup, then this has been a hugely disappointing season,” Yorke said.

“Considering everything else that’s happened, the current league position and the failings in Europe, you’d have to think there would be some question marks around the manager in the summer.

“You’d need to look at successful and proven managers, first of all. People with strong characters, people who have a clear identity of the way in which they play. You need a big personality, because we know there are some big egos in that dressing room. That’s always the case at big clubs, so you have to have somebody who can manage that, while also implementing a certain playing philosophy.

“Players breaking rules and protocols… these things are non negotiable for a manager, and you have to instil that from the very beginning, and so you have to ask who would be able to come in and do all of the above.”
