Proven manager told to steer clear of Manchester United by former player

Manchester United Football Club could well have a new manager when the first ball of next season is kicked, with many thinking that Jose Mourinho could be the man in charge. Another name who has been linked with an Old Trafford move is Mauricio Pochettino, but he has been told to steer clear.

Ledley King knows Tottenham inside-out, and he has told the Argentinian boss to stick at it at White Hart Lane instead of making the move North.

“We all know Manchester United is a huge club but at the moment there is a lot of uncertainty there with what’s happening,” he told Sky.

“At Tottenham, things seem to be very well balanced. He’s got a group of young players who are singing to his tune so I’m sure he’s just concentrating on finishing the season as well as possible.

“If you’re a player playing well then people will be after you and it’s the same for a coach.

“But that’s part of the enjoyment of it and I think this manager is enjoying the challenge right now of working with these young players. 

“He’s in a great place with a new stadium on the way, so I think the manager is very happy where he is.”

These are strong words from King, and being a Spurs man through and through obviously he wants the best coach in charge. Pochettino is doing a fantastic job at the moment, and you’d imagine United are looking at bringing him in. However he is a very loyal man, and if Spurs finish above United this term I highly doubt he’d leave.
