Manchester United’s dressing room is said to be keen on the idea of working under Mauricio Pochettino, according to The Telegraph.

 

United have already begun looking at potential replacements for current manager Ralf Rangnick, who is set to remain in charge till the end of the season, and the current PSG manager Pochettino is said to be among the names. The former Spurs manager was one of the names linked with the job when Jose Mourinho was sacked. 

 

Pochettino, who did an impressive job at Southampton and later took Tottenham to the Champions League final in 2019, is considered to be a good fit to become Manchester United’s fifth manager since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Pochettino is known for his willingness to nurture young talents. Under the 49-year-old’s tutelage, many English youngsters ended up representing the England national team. 25-year-old Dele Alli, who recently moved to Everton, acknowledged Pochettino’s contribution to making sure that Alli’s time at the club was largely a success in his farewell message to Spurs. 

 

"I want to give a special mention to Mauricio and his staff for their trust and guidance in the early part of my career at Spurs, which gave me the confidence and platform to show what I can do," the Englishman wrote. 

 

Ralf Rangnick’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League table after Burnley held them to a draw at Turf Moor. The German will eventually move to a consultancy role at the club when United officials decide on a permanent manager.
