Manchester United Football Club could well be in the market for a new manager in the not too distant future. It seems as though vice-chairman Edward Woodward has made his choice.
According to The Independent, per The Sun, Woodward’s preferred choice is Mauricio Pochettino; over Zinedine Zidane.
Obviously, Zizou has been brilliant for Real Madrid. He won them three Champions League titles in two-and-a-half years as manager, that’s truly incredible. However, I feel he’s too similar to Mourinho. Plus, he’s untested in the Premier League.
Pochettino would certainly take us in a different direction. He knows English football. He loves to play an attacking style. Young players thrive under his tutelage.
Bringing in the Tottenham Hotspur man certainly seems like the perfect fit. He’s young, hungry, and Pochettino would actually get money to spend if he came to United. It’d give him the ability to take himself to that next level – while working with some world-class individuals, including David de Gea, Paul Pogba and many more.
I do have one major concern, though. Would Pochettino leave Spurs in the lurch in the middle of a season? I highly doubt it. He’s a loyal man, United would likely have to find a short-term replacement from now until season’s end. As we all know, a lot can change in football over that time. Who’s to say that the man from Argentina would actually leave Spurs at all?
