So it turns out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could even be a super sub manager.
The former Manchester United striker is reportedly in talks with the club about taking over as temporary manager until the end of the season.
Solskjaer, who is currently in charge of Molde in Norway, has been heavily linked with the job alongside another former player Laurent Blanc, who is also in contention for the interim position.
It is believed that the club want an experienced head to takeover until the end of the campaign, according to The Mirror.
The news comes after United decided to sack Jose Mourinho on Tuesday morning.
It seems Sunday's defeat to Liverpool was the final straw as the club released the following statement to declare his departure.
"Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect. The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
"A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager."
Ole Gunnar Solskjær was mentioned behind the scenes at United as a possible short-term replacement for Mourinho earlier this season. Still with Molde, but still potentially an option for caretaker role until summer.- Mark Ogden (@MarkOgden_) December 18, 2018
It's the question on so many lips right now. Who will replace Jose Mourinho as the next permanent manager of Manchester United?
Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who is currently without a job, is favourite with many bookmakers to take over the reigns at Old Trafford, while Guus Hiddink and Antonio Conte are second and third favourites, according to Oddschecker.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is way behind the pecking order at 20/1 with some bookies, which may surprise some.
Former Manchester United centre-back Blanc is among the favourites at 9/1, as well another former player Michael Carrick, who is 11/10 with some bookies.
The appeal of Solskjær to Utd is that he knows the club, can unite the supporters and has experience, but his six months at Cardiff were disastrous, so there are some reservations. Desperate times etc...- Mark Ogden (@MarkOgden_) December 18, 2018
