Manchester United

If Erik ten Hag is fired, Raphael Varane has already advised Man United who they should hire.

In the event that Erik ten Hag is fired, Raphael Varane has already expressed his opinions about the candidate Manchester United should select.

Ten Hag has come under intense scrutiny this week following a run of subpar performances.

Following Wednesday night’s 3-0 Carabao Cup loss to Newcastle United, United supporters voiced their opinions.

Since then, the bookies’ favorite to take over as United’s manager is Zinedine Zidane, and the odds on Ten Hag being fired have dropped.

Varane has already talked well of the France icon, having previously worked with Zidane at Real Madrid.

“I will give you the details!” he declared to The Times. That was an insane time in my life!

“The club realized that I needed to be sold while I was playing for the first squad. Because of this, I was really busy when Zizou called, and I was initially unaware that it was him. I was astonished to see that it was him. “Oh my God!” It was so bizarre that I told him to give me a call back another day as I was shocked and busy.

Varane went on, “He was alright. Zizou understood totally because he is a very typical and humble person. I contacted my brother ten seconds later and informed him, “You have no idea what I just did!” It was truly insane! If you ask a member of my generation to name one football player, it would be Zizou. He is the most well-known and esteemed player.


Then Varane talked about the time Sir Alex Ferguson made an attempt to get him to United.

“Another shock!” he exclaimed. I was watching him through the window to make sure he was indeed entering my home. I didn’t speak English when he arrived, so my mother, who is fluent in the language, interacted with him more. We spoke for an hour on how he can support my personal and professional development. It was a significant event.

“Manchester United has always been a huge club with a huge history in my opinion. I recall the day when [Nemanja] Vidic and [Rio] Ferdinand were playing together. I have always valued this club’s heritage. Indeed, I have always respected English football, especially United, because this club has produced many players with a long history, like [David] Beckham.

“The first idea was to come to United,” Varane said. Due to several circumstances, I received a call from Zizou, which sped up the transfer process and allowed me to travel to Madrid. The day after I saw José Mourinho, I spoke with him, returned to France, and received the Baccalaureat. He went on. Sure! It was a very insane month!
