Manchester United legend Gary Nevile has maintained a firm position in his reports about the club lately. this time he has revealed that Mauricio Pochettino will dump Paris Saint-Germain and take up the vacant position at Old Trafford without delay.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked as Manchester United boss on Sunday barely 24 hours after the Red Devils were hammered 4-1 by lowly rated Watford.
Pochettino, a former Tottenham boss, is said to be the first choice of legend gaffer, Sir Alex Ferguson to take over at Old Trafford.
It is not news anymore that many names were shortlisted for Solskjaer’s replacement, including former Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane; Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers; and Ajax manager, Erik ten Hag are being linked to the hot seat but it looks like Pochettino could be the man to take over the reins at Old Trafford.
Red Devils legend Neville believes it would be a straightforward decision for Pochettino if his club came calling for him.
“I think Mauricio Pochettino – although he’d never say it – he’d leave to come to Man United on a five-year deal tomorrow,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“He’d look at that group of players, he’d look at the club and he’d realize he’d probably be able to achieve more than he wants at Man United in terms of a project.
“At PSG you are on season-by-season. You’ve got to win the Champions League or you’re out type of model. I don’t think that suits Pochettino.
“I think he would absolutely come to Man United on a five-year deal, with backing behind him. How he’d fit in with the current coaches who are still there and left, I’m not sure.”
