Opinion: Man Utd have decision to make on Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino finds himself without a club and open to negotiations following his sacking at Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs are winless in their last five Premier League games, winless in their last 12 Premier League away games and looking a shadow of themselves when you consider last season they reached the Champions League final and finished third behind Man City and Liverpool in the league.

Only time will tell if Spurs made the right decision, but I wouldn’t hold my breathe as Europe’s elite look set to poach the Argentine, who still appears very much a man in demand.

A lot of people are asking ‘would you take Pochettino now at United?’ It comes as no surprise that we are one of the first clubs to pop up since the Red Devils were strongly linked to the former Southampton manager after firing José Mourinho one year ago.

Breaking: Mourinho has been appointed Tottenham Hotspur manager, as per Sky Sports.

Tuesday’s news of Pochettino’s sacking will have got Solskjaer thinking.

We are currently led to believe that United are sticking by their Norwegian boss, who has had a slight upturn in results of late, but Solskjaer is not stupid and will know the club is fundamentally a business machine. 

There is a demand from supporters who want the glory days to return sooner rather than later.

United have a difficult decision to make if they still hold interest in Pochettino. Especially when his sacking means there is not a huge compensation cost to meet in order to bring him to Old Trafford.

Should Man Utd jump to hire Pochettino even though Solskjaer is under contract?
