Manchester United apparently snubbed Antonio Conte as their new manager after Cristiano Ronaldo’s reservations about the Italian were fed back to the board. The Red Devils appointed Ralf Rangnick as their interim boss in November after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been given his marching orders.

United had started the season in emphatic fashion as they won four of their first five Premier League matches. But they suffered a precipitous downturn in fortunes over the autumn as speculation about Solskjaer’s future intensified.

During the Norwegian’s latter days in charge, United were linked with a whole host of top names. And, according to the Manchester Evening News, Ronaldo vetoed Conte as a possible boss. The former Chelsea manager was apparently interested in taking over at Old Trafford but was ultimately appointed Tottenham boss while Solskjaer was still at the helm in Manchester.

Solskjaer was eventually axed almost three weeks after Conte had taken over in north London following an embarrassing 4-1 thumping at the hands of Watford. And Red Devils chiefs decided that Rangnick was the right man to temporarily steer the ship at Old Trafford after scouring the world for a suitable successor to the Norwegian.
