Rudi Garcia interviewed for Manchester United interim job

Former Lyon, Lille and Roma manager Rudi Garcia is in the running for the position of interim boss.

According to respected journalist Andy Mitten, writing for The National, the Frenchman has already been interviewed by Manchester United.

The 57-year-old could be the answer for the remainder of the season if United are unable to get a permanent appointment in the door now.

Reports have linked Mauricio Pochettino with the job but he’s in charge of PSG and on course to win Ligue 1.

The French giants will also be setting their aims on winning the Champions League which would help silence the critics who claim the Argentine hasn’t won enough trophies to manage United.

At least Garcia has winning pedigree after leading Lille to their first trophy in 50 years in 2011, winning a league-and-cup double, and he did a good job at Lyon after guiding them to a French Cup final and Champions League semi-finals.

Garcia also brought Roma to second place in Serie A twice — only to be bettered by an incredible Juventus side.

The report in question claims Garcia can speak fluent French, English, Spanish and Italian which makes him a good fit for the Premier League.

It sounds like former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is his biggest competition for the interim position at Old Trafford after both men were interviewed by the club ahead of last night’s 2-0 win over Villarreal.

Let us know in the comments section if you think Garcia would be a good fit?
