Manchester United fans put off Mauricio Pochettino after PSG crash out of Champions League

Mauricio Pochettino will be a lot easier to get in the summer.

That’s if Manchester United were not put off by Paris Saint Germain’s Champions League exit tonight, as the Ligue 1 giants threw away a two-goal advantage in the last 30 minutes of their last-16 tie.

Karim Benzema snatched a place in the quarters for Real Madrid with a 16-minute hat-trick at the Bernabeu to shatter PSG’s dreams.

The manager, Pochettino, who has been strongly linked with the United job, is expected to take the brunt of it – like previous managers at PSG whenever they’ve bottled it in the Champions League – not Lionel Messi and co.

It looked done and dusted for the French giants until Gianluigi Donnarumma gifted Real Madrid a way back into the tie. There was even a stage in the second half when PSG appeared to be coasting a little, but maybe too much and that is something that can be changed from the dugout.

This all led to a big reaction from United fans on social media – most who don’t feel Pochettino is the right man for the job, but not all…

    I wish the Utd board had some men among themselves who understands or even played football for once. They don’t know who to hire. They don’t even know what they’re doing. Absolute clueless board ! They hired a sporting director for a interim managerial postion & some clown coaches before that. And now looking to hire this Poch clown, who has won some useless titles with this star-studded PSG squad & nothing before that in his managerial career.

    How many managers need to be sacked before the board realises they are incapable to run a club like Man utd ?

    The only realistic solution will be to analyse & compare the features & pros-cons of other top managers in Europe & find suitable one accordingly. My preference is Enrqiue or second best, Ten Hag.
