Graham Potter, current boss of Brighton has been named by Paul Merson to become next United boss as he advices Manchester United to appoint him.
The former Arsenal star does not believe in anything Ralf Rangnick is doing at Old Trafford, insisting nothing has changed since the German took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He believes English managers are overlooked when it comes to taking big jobs in The Premier League and thinks Potter is going an incredible job at Brighton and would do better at Old Trafford.
“Manchester United are missing a trick overlooking Graham Potter – and so is the rest of the Premier League,” Merson wrote in his Daily Star column.
He said, however, that it would be difficult for Manchester United to appoint the Englishman as their next manager.
“It’s like English managers don’t exist for the big clubs so they’re hardly ever given a chance at the big jobs.
“I’m not sure about Ralf Rangnick at all. He’s come in and everyone’s talking about him like he’s invented football and is some sort of genius.
“United are as bad as they were under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer! Nothing’s changed, has it? Let’s be honest,” he said.
He further went on to assert that he does not see Ralf Rangnick holding the reins at Manchester United for long and feels when it’s time to change him, Potter’s name should be amongst the contenders.
