Manchester United have been told they need a touch from the hand of God if they are to turn their fortunes around.
That is the opinion of former Argentina striker Diego Maradona , who believes he could do a better job than United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Maradona declared to FourFourTwo that he should replace Solskjaer in the United hot seat, after their disappointing sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.
“If Manchester [United] need a coach, I’m the man to do it,” Maradona said, “Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long.
“But now I have to say Man City. I know you shouldn’t change like that but it’s because of Kun [Aguero]. We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team.”

Maradona is currently manager of Mexican second-division side, Dorados, whom he has narrowly missed out on promotion with in each of the last two seasons.
United meanwhile face a big summer rebuild at Old Trafford, with the future of star midfielder Paul Pogba hanging in the balance.
The Red Devils have already lost Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera – who joined PSG on a free transfer – with Pogba now rumoured to be the next to leave.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Real Madrid , with Solskjaer now said to be willing to offer him the captaincy to keep him at Old Trafford.
However Maradona offered a scathing assessment of Pogba, and questioned his attitude.

He added: “With United I liked Ander Herrera. Paul Pogba? Doesn’t work hard enough.”
