Mauricio Pochettino remains Man Utd’s top choice to succeed Jose Mourinho - but Gareth Southgate has not been discounted as a potential alternative.

Massimiliano Allegri, Diego Simeone and Zinedine Zidane are other leading contenders - but Pochettino remains the overwhelming favourite to get the job.



England manager Southgate is the latest name to emerge as a contender to take over at the end of the season - but he is among a lengthy list candidates from around the world.



Pochettino has long-been Woodward’s preferred choice - but United’s executive vice chairman is determined to assess a host of alternatives.

That is both to ensure he gets the right appointment after the failures of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho - and to have back up options in place if Pochettino decides to stay at Tottenham.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will also come into contention - and is likely to be a more popular choice among fans than Southgate.

Ed Woodward has already deployed football staff from within Old Trafford, as well as outside experts, to provide him with recommendations as part of a thorough and extensive process.
