Rudi Garcia speaks out on Manchester United links over temporary role

Rudi Garcia speaks out on Manchester United links over temporary role

Garcia linked with Manchester United job

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the then-Manchester United manager, left the club on Sunday morning, it was announced.

His departure was necessary following a dismal showing during a 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

While it feels as though it has come months too late, it is ultimately the only decision that was left open to the Manchester United hierarchy after a terrible run of form that saw them slip from 3rd to 8th place in the Premier League, a full 12 points off league leaders Chelsea.

Although Michael Carrick won his first game as caretaker boss, he is not expected to be in charge long. With Mauricio Pochettino now allegedly off the table, Manchester United are back to plan A, appointing an interim manager until the end of the season.

And, as per French outlet L’Equipe, that man could well be Rudi Garcia.

Garcia speaks out on rumours

In turn, speaking to the French media ahead of Manchester City’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain, Garcia was drawn on his links with Manchester United.

Unfortunately for the Red Devils faithful, however, he was not willing to confirm his plans either way, further fuelling speculation.

Garcia said:

“I am not used to commenting on rumours in my career. I will say nothing on the subject. I neither confirm nor deny.”

Could he yet end up at Old Trafford?
