Contact made: Man United approach potential successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Posted by

Although the abject performance in their 6-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur won’t force Man United’s board to act just yet, it does seem that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already on borrowed time.

Coming so soon after a pathetic home defeat against Crystal Palace, it’s clear why the knives are already out for the Norwegian.

He’ll surely be none to happy to note that his paymasters have already made contact with a potential replacement too.

According to the Daily Star, senior United figures have approached Mauricio Pochettino’s representatives, and the Argentinian is apparently keen to pitch up at Old Trafford if the chance presents itself.

Mauricio Pochettino is being linked with Manchester United again

The Daily Star suggest that Ed Woodward is loathe to sack Solskjaer during the current international break but wants to see an immediate upturn in results when domestic football resumes.

However, the next break in November could see the manager fall on his sword if results haven’t improved significantly by then.

  1. woodward, not ole, bears all responsibility for this failure.

    But why has he not delivered 2 CBs and sold Pogba and Maguire who are amongt the most useless players I have seen at OT since I started supporting them in 1948. OK accept that others will nominate worse players and I could too, but in this context they are horendous.

  2. United’s problems are far from over it’s not ole but Woodward and the scouts are not doing their job as expected forcing ole to try and work with what is available for Christ’s shake the team is not balanced United’s midfield is made up of only attack minded players who don’t back track which is their type of play so you can’t blame them the likes of Pogba ,Fred totally played of position then you again for to the market and get like to like players like they never watch United games at all defense cover not sorted and you have champions league coming to be precise for United to be that top team again the Glazer’s should sell the club

  3. That’s the world these days… no longer believe in building over a period of time, want quick fixes to problems, not enough of human engagement, and in United board’s case… still dreaming of the next Ferguson.

  4. Ollie can only do with what he’s got in front of him he done well to get us in Champions League football last season the board should have built on that team But instead took the piss getting Sancho in and messed up other deals what should’ve been

  5. The problem we now have is the manager and captain,, the club is too big to be led by those two pumpkins,, I have failed to know why Maguire was made captain in the first place…
