The pressure is once again mounting on Jose Mourinho. Now, it looks as though the board at Manchester United have given him his stipulations if the self-proclaimed Special One wants to keep his job…

According to The Sun, Mourinho will be sacked if he fails to finish in the top four; thus securing Champions League football in the process…

Furthermore, United want 46-year-old Mauricio Pochettino to replace Mourinho if the Portuguese does indeed lose his job. However, the club understands it’ll be tough to lure the Argentine to Old Trafford, particularly as he’s under contract for the foreseeable future…

I think that, whatever happens, United have to take things in a different direction when they make their next appointment. They’ve tried a defence-first manager, but that clearly isn’t working.

Pochettino’s teams play some fantastic football while showing a real faith and trust in youth. If that isn’t tailor-made for United, I’m not sure what is…

My only real issue comes with Pochettino himself. I’m not totally convinced that he’ll walk away from what he is building at Spurs, particularly as they’re due to move into their swanky new stadium for next season. He’s a loyal coach, and prising him away from Daniel Levy definitely won’t be an easy task…
