After a disaster of a season, especially by the high standards of Manchester United, the club has fired manager David Moyes before he could even finish one complete season. While many fans were preaching patience, others have been calling for his head since December, even staging a fly-by protest with a banner that said “Wrong One – Moyes Out”. By finishing outside of the top four in the Premier League, United will miss out on Champion’s League qualification for the first time since the mid 90′s. This is a huge blow to their ego, as well as the clubs’ bank accounts. Whoever is chosen to replace Moyes will have a tough job ahead of them. Here are Sportsbreak’s top eight choices.

8. Ole Gunnar Solskjær

Already a proven winner in his native Norway, Solskjær could be the man to lead United forward. He won the Tippeligean (Norway’s top division) with Molde in back to back years in 2011 and 2012, and added a Norwegian Cup win in 2013. Currently managing in the Premier League with Cardiff City, he has had a taste of the rigors and demands of being a manager in England’s top flight. Of course, ‘The Baby-Faced Assassin’ is already a legend among United fans after a brilliant playing career at Old Trafford, including scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champion’s League final against Bayern Munich.
