The report says that the Frenchman would rather explore other options elsewhere

The hot seat at Old Trafford became vacant on Sunday morning after Ole Gunner Solskjaer was sacked as Man United manager following the Red Devils’ embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford.

A 4-2 loss to Leicester City, 5-0 thrashing in the hands of Liverpool and a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City were ignored by the club’s hierarchy but the Saturday’s result proved to be the ‘final straw’ leading to Solskjaer’s dismissal .

The club did not put any plan in place, because, according to the report, they never planned sacking Solskjaer at this point and now the hunt for a new boss has commenced.

Assistant Manager, Michael Carrick has stepped into the breach as caretaker and the likelihood is that an interim manager will be appointed as soon as possible.

BBC reports that Zidane has no interest in taking the job at Old Trafford at the moment on an interim or permanent basis.

The report further said that Zidane is seriously looking at becoming manager of the French national side or Paris Saint-Germain, jobs he has been linked with in the past.

The Frenchman is said to be willing to wait for these jobs to become available and would rather wait and see if either of those moves could become a possibility rather than take the job at Old Trafford.

Current PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino is also heavily linked with the Man United job with the Red Devils hierarchy hoping they can tempt the Argentine back to England.
