Flocking to Twitter, a number of Manchester United fans have erupted over a managerial update involving Paris-Saint Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino.
Incumbent Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently under scrutiny at Old Trafford amid reports of player unrest and a dismal run of results.
Who should United hire if they sack Ole?
Before the international break, United suffered crushing derby defeats to bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City, heaping pressure on the Norwegian, who is reportedly hanging on to the job by a thread.
As such, rumours have surfaced in recent weeks over who could replace the 48-year-old if United do decide to part company, with another update emerging involving Pochettino.
According to The Telegraph, Spurs’ former boss could ‘come into consideration’ in the event of a managerial change, and it is believed that the Argentine is open to a Premier League return in his next job.
Flocking to this claim, many Red Devils fans have been left excited, and it’s little wonder given Pochettino’s reputation, with ex-Lilywhites keeper Heurelho Gomes calling him a ‘football genius’ (ESPN Brasil via Sport Witness) and the 49-year-old guiding Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019.
Check out some of the best verdicts on the development below, with one United fan believing that Pochettino would be a “perfect replacement” for Solskjaer.
