Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly waiting by the phone in anticipation of Manchester United offering him the manager’s job.
Pochettino, who established himself as one of the finest managers on the planet with his complete transformation of Tottenham Hotspur, has struggled to replicate that success at Paris Saint-Germain.
The marriage between Poch and PSG doesn’t appear to be a particularly healthy one, with the general consensus being that they ought to part ways at some point in time not too far away.
There was a real possibility of Pochettino leaving the Parc des Princes after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal, but the move never materialised and Ralf Rangnick was appointed interim manager.
Now Rangnick is struggling to get the engines firing, Pochettino is being re-linked with the Man United job, and according to The Sun, he’d be very interested in taking it, were it to become available.
The report claims that Pochettino is waiting for Man United to make an approach for him, one which could come before the end of the season, depending on whether Rangnick is able to work miracles.
Pochettino is the man that Man United ought to have appointed as soon as Daniel Levy made the terrible error of sacking him. At least they now look set to right that wrong more than two years down the line…
