EPL: Ex-Chelsea star, Cascarino tells Man Utd manager to replace Rangnick

Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino, has told Manchester United to appoint Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa as Ralf Rangnick’s replacement at Old Trafford.

Bielsa took over at Leeds United in 2018 and has been able to transform the West Yorkshire side over the past few years, leading them to win the Championship title in 2019/20.

Recall that Man United appointed Rangnick on an interim basis for the remainder of the season following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last year.

But Cascarino believes Bielsa would be an “incredible fit” for Man United as he has “overachieved everywhere.”

“Bielsa has overachieved everywhere, he has been because he has had to,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.


“I think Bielsa gets a really raw deal in many ways. Think of Leeds [United] before he walked through the door and look where they are now.

“He produces very, very effective teams. Leeds can be a really good team to play and a really bad team to play. When they’re on, they are fantastic.

“Bielsa has done it in a very different way in many different countries. I personally love his brand of football and I think he would be an incredible fit for Manchester United.”
