Report: Manchester United Contact Mauricio Pochettino About Manager Position

Does anybody have confidence that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the man to return Manchester United to past glories?

Now 101 games into his tenure as manager, the Norwegian hasn't really improved the fortunes of the club. Every bit of progress seems to be offset by an equally discouraging setback, something that cannot be allowed to continue in the long-term.

The impressive wins over PSG and RB Leipzig have all but been forgotten after the recent losses to Arsenal and Istanbul Başakşehir, with United turning in abject performances in both games.

While the problems at Old Trafford are in no way limited to the man in the dugout, it is becoming increasingly clear that Solskjaer does possess not the type of personality that could overcome the other issues at the club and allow the first team to excel on the pitch.

Could his tenure now be coming to its natural end?


The Manchester Evening News are reporting that Manchester United have made contact with Mauricio Pochettino about becoming the club's next manager, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer coming under increasing pressure.

It is understood that the club's board are quickly losing confidence in their manager, with last night's result in Turkey the latest blow. A defeat against Everton at the weekend, a result which could see United plummet to 17th place in the Premier League, could be seen as the final straw.


Pochettino has long been linked with an interest in a move to Old Trafford and indicated during his appearance on Monday Night Football earlier this week that he was interested in getting back into management.

A coach with a global reputation, the Argentine would certainly bring the personality and long-term vision that has seemingly been lacking under Solskjaer.

When the current manager was asked about his future after last night's defeat, he wouldn't be drawn on speculation.


I decline to comment on such a thing. Of course, it's early on and opinions are out there all the time. You've got to stay strong.

I'm employed by the club to do a job and I do that to the best of my ability with my staff.
