South Africans find cure to Man Utd problems

Football fans in South Africa have proposed Pitso Mosimane - one of the country's top coaches - to take up the role at English club Manchester United.

After a string of poor performances, the Premier League club sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the weekend and launched a search for a high-profile manager to turn things around.

Several top coaches have been linked to the vacancy but according to South African tweeters there's only one man for the job.

A photoshopped picture of Mosimane wearing a Manchester United-branded jacket has been shared by several tweeters.

One of them went a step further to match-make - tagging the coach's and the club's accounts.

Mosimane currently manages top Egyptian side Al Ahly.

Last year, he led the side to win a second African Champions League and the team later impressed in the Fifa Club World Cup, reaching the semi-finals.

The 57-year-old previously had great success in the South African league with Mamelodi Sundowns, guiding them to a maiden Champions League win in 2016 as well as five league titles.

It does make you wonder what Manchester United are waiting for...
