Manchester United has spoken to at least five managers in their search for a replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
After a 4-1 loss to newly promoted Watford, Solskjaer was sacked.
United are now on a five-game losing streak in the Premier League.
Michael Carrick, a former player and assistant to Solskjaer, was named interim manager on Tuesday night and oversaw a 2-0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League.
United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and managing director Richard Arnold preferred to interview candidates for the post rather than travel to Spain for the game.
Some of the coaches they have spoken to include former Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde, Ralf Rangnick who is currently the head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow, ex-Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre, former Lyon coach Rudi Garcia and Paulo Fonseca who was replaced at Roma by Jose Mourinho
