Manchester United finally got tired of Ole Gunnar Solskjær and showed him the exit door but have failed to secure a replacement for him due to timing and other conditions surrounding the sacking.
They have temporarily installed another club legend Michael Carrick as the caretaker to be supported by Darren Fletcher and Mike Phelan until an interim manager until the end of the season is found when the club will find a permanent manager.
The club are not willing to make the same mistake they made with Solskjær who was made permanent after just a few games, they have shortlisted Zinedine Zidane, Luis Enrique and Mauricio Pochettino as replacements but none fancy the job.
Enrique joked it's not April Fools day to be linked to United while PSG have made it clear they are unwilling to release Mauricio Pochettino less than a year after appointing him while Zidane is believed o want the France national team job and his inability to speak English is a reason he also doesn't want the job.
Manchester United's delicate situation makes it hard for top managers to accept the job mid season as anyone employed now would be saddled with the responsibility of turning things around. For a manager from the outside who has analysed the situation diving head first into it would be a bad game.
