“He has executed a number of unusual interviews, and made a number of feedback that will point out that’s the case. United have nice gamers, however they don’t seem to be a terrific group, and I believe Conte might assist mould them into that.
“It’s time for an actual change.” Conte explained earlier this month why he believed he was not considered for the United job.

It [Solskjaer’s sacking] happened after I signed, but honestly, I am so focused on the Tottenham job that I didn’t read this.”
