Mauricio Pochettino is currently bound by a contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2023. The “Sky Sports” website informs, however, that the Argentine would gladly take the place of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, and the former Tottenham Hotspur guardian as a manager is also seen by the MU activists themselves.
“I think Mauricio Pochettino, although he would never say it, would leave to come to Manchester United as soon as possible and sign a five-year deal,” Gary Neville told Sky Sports.
A TV expert and a former Red Devils player admits that the work in the Paris club is not the most pleasant one and after each season the most important thing is the number of trophies put into the club’s display case.
– At PSG you work from season to season. You have to win the Champions League or you’re fired, adds Neville. “I don’t think it suits Pochettino.” I think he would absolutely come to Manchester United on a five-year deal with support behind him.
In addition to Pochettino, Erika ten Haga, Ajax Amsterdam’s coach, is also mentioned among the potential successors of the Norwegian manager. In his case, the problem may also be the contract that binds him until 2023 with the Dutch club.
The reins of the team from Old Trafford have been taken over by Solskjaer’s assistant Michael Carrick, who will lead the team as a temporary coach.
