The Argentine coach moved to Tottenham Hotspur at the beginning of last season, and after a campaign in which he oversaw transition at White Hart Lane—and took Spurs to the League Cup final—he has begun to see his endeavours bear fruit this season.
With a handful of fringe players axed from the squad, and a clutch of talented young stars introduced to the team, Pochettino’s Spurs are flying; they’ve lost only two games this season, and currently sit fourth in the Premier League table.
The Lilywhites are only one point behind Manchester City in third and four off leading pair Arsenal and Leicester City.

His super work at Spurs has prompted the Mirror’s Kidd to advocate the Pochettino as the man to end United’s current ongoing misery.
Read Kidd’s argument below:
If United want the best man for the actual job, they should move for Pochettino.
Pochettino is a coach who genuinely builds and coaches teams, mastering the balance between attacking verve and defensive solidity and making it infinitely better than a sum of its parts.
A coach with a track-record of over-achieving in the unique demands of the Premier League, while recruiting, promoting and developing young English players – a cause dear to United hearts.
And Pochettino is also a quietly-determined man capable of bending a club to his own will without causing nuclear meltdowns.
