Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern hoping to have a successor to the failing Louis Van Gaal lined-up imminently have been handed a bonus alongside their dish on curry night, with some positive reports.
The Sun state United officials have held talks with Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino, with the excelling Argentine manager identified as a potential successor to Van Gaal and a rival for Jose Mourinho.
Former Chelsea boss Mourinho is the leading candidate to take over from Old Trafford but his controversial attitude doesn’t sit well with many members of the United board and Pochettino is highly-rated.
Pochettino has excelled with Spurs this season, leading the North London side into the Premier League title race with a side that has been fully blooded with young talent- including that of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
United want a manager who’s capable of doing exactly that at Old Trafford, whilst also ensuring that the team is capable of fighting for honours on a variety of fronts.
Our landlord prefers Pochettino to Mourinho and has urged United to get the appointment secured, though he believes Tottenham will fend-off any interest in their boss.
United fans, Mourinho or Pochettino? Who do you want? Let us know in the comments below!
