Manchester United: Mauricio Pochettino top target to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dismissed in the wake of Man Utd’s 4-1 defeat at Watford; Michael Carrick in charge while United look for an interim boss until the end of the season; Erik ten Hag United’s second choice after Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino is Manchester United’s first choice to take over as the club’s manager next summer.

United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday and have put Michael Carrick in temporary charge while opening the search for an interim manager until the end of the season.

Former Tottenham boss Pochettino is currently in charge at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Argentinian guided Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019 but was dismissed in November of that year following a plunge in form.

Pochettino will have one year to run on his PSG contract next summer.

“I think Mauricio Pochettino – although he’d never say it – would leave to come to Man Utd on a five-year deal tomorrow,” predicted Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville. “He’d look at that group of players, he’d look at the club and he’d realise he’d probably be able to achieve more than he wants at Man Utd in terms of a project.

“At PSG you are on season by season, ‘you’ve got to win the Champions League or you’re out’- type of model. I don’t think that suits Pochettino. I think he would absolutely come to Man Utd on a five-year deal, with backing behind him.”
