Manchester United Eyeing Wolves Head Coach Gary O’Neil for New Coaching Set-Up

Manchester United are reportedly interested in Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Gary O’Neil for a role in a potential new coaching set-up at Old Trafford. Sources have revealed that with the recent acquisition of a 27 percent stake in the club by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS group, the new regime led by INEOS director of sport Sir Dave Brailsford is looking to build a new coaching structure with a head coach at the helm. While the future of current manager Erik ten Hag is still uncertain, United have already considered Gareth Southgate, Roberto De Zerbi, and Thomas Frank as potential successors.

Gary O’Neil, who took over as manager at Molineux last August, has had a successful run with Wolves this season, putting them in the running for European qualification. Prior to his role at Wolves, O’Neil managed to keep Bournemouth in the Premier League during his first top-flight job last season. The 40-year-old has been informed of United’s interest in him, and senior figures from the club are keen on discussing his intentions regarding a potential role at Old Trafford.

Sources have confirmed United’s interest in O’Neil, although the specific role they may offer him remains unknown. Apart from considering managerial options, United is also looking to strengthen their entire coaching team. O’Neil signed a three-year contract with Wolves last summer, which could result in United having to pay compensation if they decide to bring him on board. His coaching career began with Liverpool U-18s, where he was hired by Michael Edwards during his time as the club’s sporting director. Edwards and O’Neil previously collaborated during Portsmouth’s stint in the Premier League in the early 2000s.

Manchester United is actively exploring the possibility of adding Gary O’Neil to their coaching staff as part of a new set-up under the INEOS regime. O’Neil’s experience and success at Wolves make him an attractive candidate for United, who are looking to revamp their coaching structure. Time will tell if O’Neil will indeed make the move to Old Trafford and play a key role in shaping the future of the club.
