Wenger claims his ‘ideas’ could improve Man Utd squad if Solskjaer left

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted that he could be the successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, claiming that he has “ideas” that could improve the squad.

United have won just once in the Premier League – a 1-0 victory over Leicester – since their opening weekend thrashing of Chelsea, and the Red Devils squeezed into the fourth round of the EFL Cup on penalties against Rochdale on Wednesday.

Solskjaer‘s side currently sit eighth in the league after six games and, speaking to beIN Sports, Wenger claimed that a manager of his stature could improve the current squad.

Manchester United is a dream job for any manager,” the Frenchman said. “At least, any manager with courage and confidence.  Yes, they need – in my opinion – four first team players.

“But around those players, I see a squad that is capable of challenging. They aren’t as far away as people think. The team have no pattern of play, no pattern of pressing.



“There is a team there, but it needs to be coached and developed. Like I said, four players and they can be challengers. For everything. Like I said, Manchester United is a dream job. For any coach. I have confidence, I have courage…and you’re right, I have ideas.”

In other United news, the club could reportedly make a January move for an attacking target after the Serie A player turned down a lucrative contract in Qatar.
