Former Everton and West Bromwich Albion boss Sam Allardyce has called on Manchester United to replace Erik ten Hag with Carlo Ancelotti.

Ten Haag’s job is hanging in the balance and with each passing day it is more likely that he will be sacked from his United duties.

The Dutchman oversaw a fairly underwhelming campaign which saw the club finish eighth in the Premier League – their worst since the 1989/90 League One.

Overall, it was mentioned that Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have not made a final decision on Ten Haag and will make a final decision on his future after this weekend’s FA Cup final.

However, reliable Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio recently reported that it is certain that Ten Haag will not continue in the Old Trafford dugout.

The 54-year-old’s situation has not been helped by the fact that United remain heavily linked with his potential successors, including Kieran McKenna, Thomas Tuchel, Thomas Frank, Gareth Southgate and Graham Potter, to name but a few.

However, according to Allardyce speaking on the No Tippy Tippy Football podcast, Ancelotti would be a far better option for the Red Devils.

Allardyce said: “I know who I would bring… Ancelotti, if he leaves Real Madrid.”

“He would (go to Manchester United)”

“He went to Everton! He is the most successful manager, far more successful than Pep.”

Ancelotti would indeed be a solid managerial assignment for United. His winning record speaks for itself.

The Italian coach won four Champions League trophies, four Super Cups, a Premier League title, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Scudetto and FA Cup.

However, he is unlikely to leave a very stable and successful project at Real Madrid due to the uncertainty at United.

He also has a contract with Los Blancos until 2026
