Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique or Zinedine Zidane: who could be the first to coach Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi?

One of the three is presented the opportunity to be the first to manage both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo should they make a move.

One of Luis Enrique, Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane will have the chance of being the first to coach both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi should they make a move from their current capacity. Following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from Manchester United after a shameful 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday. This leaves a void at Old Trafford that needs to be filled. 

Top of the list to take over at Manchester United is former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane who coached Cristiano Ronaldo while in Madrid and a reunion is possible with Manchester United in need of the service of the Frenchman but he may go on to manage PSG. 

This is possible after it is getting clearer he does not want to come to England, with his wife comment that England is closer to Paris than Manchester. If this happens he will be with Lionel Messi. And this could mean Mauricio Pochettino will find his way to Old Trafford as he's one of the favorites to replace Solskjaer at United and if that happens he will have the opportunity of managing two players with 11 Ballon d'Or between them.

Another manager that may be lucky to have this lifetime opportunity is Spanish National Team head coach Luis Enrique, even though he debunked news linking him to Old Trafford as a joke but should Manchester United persist he may find his way down to Manchester and have the opportunity of managing both players having managed Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
