In football, never say never is a phrase that surely works. Players and coaches alike have been known in the past to have made bold statements about certain clubs and why they can't work for them.
Romelu Lukaku may have sworn an oath of allegiance to Inter Milan but is currently a Chelsea player. Cristiano Ronaldo entertained the thought of joining Manchester City, which would have been a sacrilege to Manchester United fans.
Antonio Conte is again associated with a move to Manchester United, and the Italian would be interested in taking the job if Solskjaer is sacked.
Following the defeat at the hands of Young Boys, Jason Cundy came on Sports Bar and begged the management at Old Trafford to replace Ole with Conte. In his words, he described Ole as 'utterly clueless' and should be fired.
Antonio Conte is currently without a coaching job and has seen his name bandied across many clubs. The Italian works as a pundit, which is no different from what Gary Neville does. The only difference is, one is an accomplished manager, while the other is a notorious failure.
Conte has been linked with several coaching jobs in the past, but none has materialized, but it hasn't stopped the rumour mongers from associating him with a move to another club. The underperformance of Mikel Arteta at Arsenal has had fans baying for blood and asking that he be replaced.
As usual, Conte was touted as a replacement which he has flatly denied. He has also rejected the possibility of joining Tottenham. According to the former Chelsea manager, he wants a winning project, something Arsenal and Tottenham can't provide.
In 2018, Jose Mourinho was relieved of his job at Manchester United, and the keys of the castle were handed over to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Thea was that he would bring smiles back to the club while winning titles for the club.
The Norwegian has not managed to equal the highest points tally of Jose Mourinho, who finished second with 81 points. Ole finished second last season with 75 points. He has also bottled many opportunities to win a title.
For the first time in his almost three years at Old Trafford dugout, Ole is feeling the heat. More and more of the fanbase want him out of the door.
Some of the fans believe the keys to a Ferrari have been handed to a man with the driving skills of a bicycle rider.
The former Premier League winner is still waiting for the call that appeals to him with Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio of the opinion that the United job holds an interest for him.
