Approach made: Manchester United make their move for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replacement

Manchester United have approached former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino over the possibility of replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to Manchester Evening News.

There has been a revolving door in the Old Trafford manager’s office ever since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, and by the look of things, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not going to be the made to change it.

Solskjaer’s United side have suffered back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir, mounting the pressure on the Norwegian, and now M.E.N believe that he could be headed for the exit door.

The report claims that, while United are giving Solskjaer their support privately, they could swing the axe if Man United fall to yet another defeat away from home against Everton at the weekend.

M.E.N report that an approach has already been made over Pochettino being his replacement.

It seems harsh on Solskjaer, with United not backing him to the extent he would probably have hoped over the summer transfer window, but this is a results business – and he’s not delivering them.

    As for me honestly, I don’t pochettino will be better than Ole.
    I’m in support that Ole must go but not to be replaced by Pochettino, this is my view.

    1. Steve says:

      Give us your possible replacement, saying that someone should go with you not providing a replacement is a confusion

  2. Umar Usman Maito says:

    Pochittino is not the answer..

    ole should go but not to replace coaches with a coach who has never delivered, with no history… man utd need good coach with history

      What you need too remember with poch is no he hadn’t won anthing,but what he did is steady the ship and at least finish top 4 on multiple occasions, he did this on a relatively small budget but still got his players performing something which ole isn’t doing.

      I’m an ole fan as a player but he hasn’t got the tactical mind to change it’s so one dimensional.

      Ole isn’t totally to blame the board are as bad, football is a simple game and those players have more than enough ability to do more

    I’d get in allegi proven winner and tough out but then so was jose

  5. Stuart Sibbald says:

    Pochettino had Spurs playing some good football but without any real success.
    Allegri is a serial winner.
    You pays your money, you takes your chance!

    Woodward out

  9. AG111 says:

    Sell Pogba and Martial, bring a new young CB and a young striker and possibly a mid-fielder. Even players like Matic, Mata, James should go

    I think pochettino he’s world class
