When Manchester United handed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the manager’s job, it was met with mixed reaction.
After a simply brilliant start to life in the dugout, the problems started to build pretty quickly. Now, the Baby Faced Assassin is under pressure to deliver the goods – particularly after having a couple of transfer windows to bring in his own players.
If the Norweigan were to lose his job, there’s one man who seems tailor-made to work at Old Trafford; Mauricio Pochettino.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 47-year-old is still hopeful of landing the United manager’s job next season, as he’s still out-of-work following his dismissal from Tottenham Hotspur.
Apparently, the only way United will ditch Solskjaer is if the Reds finish outside the top six, which right now looks as likely as the club securing a top-four berth…
The good news for Pochettino fans is that the Argentine remains on the Reds’ radar if they were to be on the hunt for a new gaffer.
I like Pochettino. I think he’d be an astute appointment, though in terms of playing style and philosophy, I’m not sure he’s too different to Solskjaer. Plus, he has that trophy hoodoo hanging over his head and that cannot be ignored.
Personally, my thoughts are that we should stick with Soslkjaer, see what he does over the summer and then judge him next term…
