Manchester United next manager odds: Who are the favourites to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?

Manchester United are on the hunt for a new manager after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a dreadful run which saw them take just four points from a possible 21 in the Premier League, culminating in a 4-1 thrashing at Watford on Sunday.

Michael Carrick is in charge for the short-term, but the club announced they will appoint an interim boss until the end of the season, with a more permanent replacement to follow in summer.
