Mauricio Pochettino could potentially take over at Manchester United.
Almost a year after being sacked by Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino says he is ready to come back to the Premier League again amid speculation of him being linked with the Manchester United job.
With pressure mounting on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start producing results, the Argentine is now the favorite to take his place in the United hot-seat.
The Red Devils are currently lamenting in a lowly 15th place in the league table after six games. With such a poor start to the season, the warning bells must surely be going off in and around Old Trafford. The constant underperforming of the team means there will be repercussions and manager Solskjaer would inevitably be first in the firing line.
Pochettino certainly has an impressive CV, managing the likes of Espanyol, Southampton, and Spurs. Leaving each of his clubs in a better place than where he found them. His most impressive feat though surely was to do the unthinkable and lead Spurs to a first-ever Champions League final in 2019. The London club were also in the race for the title in their 2015/16 campaign under him.
Having spent six years in England, the 48-year old didn’t hold back while praising the country and on how he looked forward to managing in the EPL again.
I was always ready to be involved in the game again. I love football. It’s my passion, not my job. It’s not a stress when you are working. It’s not a stress to go to the training ground. It’s not a stress to prepare for a game. It’s not a stress to compete… look, my hair is still getting longer and longer!” Pochettino said.
“I am looking forward to being involved in the game again, I love the game. It’s difficult; we are inside, we are working, we are doing things but it is not the same thing to be involved every day, to share it with your players, your staff and the club. You miss that.”
The talented Argentine manager has been linked with several of the top European clubs including PSG and Real Madrid, but with him being keen on managing in the Premier League again, Manchester United may just be the club who secures his services.
