The Red Devils sacked Jose Mourinho a week before Christmas after a nightmare season.

United saw poor performances on the pitch culminated with shocking results.

But a key factor was Mourinho’s relationship with players, which was at an all-time low but the time of his dismissal.

Star players such as Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez had been linked with moves away as a result of Mourinho’s cold approach.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has arrived on an interim basis but the Telegraph have reported that United chiefs are eyeing a sensational move for England boss Southgate.

The former Middlesbrough coach is famed for his ability to man manage, with England stars enjoying a close relationship with the 48-year-old.

But United fans are not happy with the links, with many taking to social media to express their thoughts.

One fan said: “If Southgate got the job it would be a joke he has only beaten a few pub teams at the World Cup and then they were knocked out by an ageing average Croatia side.”

And another tweeted: “Please leave him with England. I beg you.”

This fan said: “I would rather have Romelu Lukaku as manager!”

And this United fan said: “I will stop following football altogether.”

Another supporter said: “I would rather have David Moyes back.”

However, non-United fans have got some advice for the England boss.

This fan said: “Southgate don’t do it. This team will ruin you. They don’t deserve you mate.”

Another said: “My advice to Gareth Southgate is don’t become a club manager but start a football consulting business helping many clubs and encouraging younger players.

“Being an employed manager is a win lose situation.”
