Antonio Conte ‘open to taking Man Utd job’ after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer disaster

Antonio Conte would be open to replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his latest Old Trafford disaster.

Manchester United were hammered 5-0 at home to bitterest rivals Liverpool in Solskjaer's lowest moment yet.

The Norwegian boss described the result as his 'darkest day' in football and he is now under incredible pressure to keep his job.

Conte, 52, has been linked to the United job should the managerial position became vacant.

The Italian has been out of work after leaving Inter Milan this summer following their Serie A title triumph.

The Manchester Evening News claim Conte would be interested in becoming United boss, despite not envisaging the Old Trafford hot seat as his next role.

Conte had been in discussions to replace Jose Mourinho at Tottenham this summer before Spurs appointed Nuno Espirito Santo.

He is one of the elite level managers identified as a possible Solskjaer replacement should he be fired, after lifting the Premier League title with Chelsea in 2017.

It is added that Conte does have some reservations about taking over at United.

Conte is said to have some concerns with the structure at Old Trafford and would not be keen on being forced to please the club's most 'marketable' stars.

But he has a top managerial CV and would undoubtedly be one of the favourites should the position become available.

Solskjaer, however, is not willing to give up yet and believes his side have 'come too far'.

"I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now," he said after the Liverpool humiliation.

"It is going to be a difficult one. The players will be low but there’s loads of characters there. We know we are rock bottom, we can’t feel any worse than this. Let’s see where we take it."
