Manchester United Board rejects Antonio Conte – Gives reasons

It was earlier reported that the board had made contact with the former Chelsea and Juventus boss Antonio Conte about taking over the job at Old Trafford as manager.

However after series of review, the Manchester United Board rejects Antonio Conte as the next manager as reported by Manchester Evening News.

Some of the high-ranking club officials are ‘not keen’ on the Italian manager because of fears his style is like Jose Mourinho’s defensive one.

Also, there are claims that certain high-ranking figures at United believe hiring Conte could go against the ‘cultural reboot’ that has happened at the club since Mourinho’s departure.

The former Inter Milan manager himself is keen on taking the job and believes he can do well with the squad.
