Manchester United are being linked with a new manager after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s recent struggles.
Could they finally be about to bring Mauricio Pochettino to Man Utd? The former Tottenham boss has been out of work for some time now and the Manchester Evening News claim the Red Devils have made an approach.

There could also be another name in the frame, however, with Massimiliano Allegri another elite coach currently available and also said to be interested in the United job, according to the Independent.
The Italian tactician has won a great deal more than Pochettino after enjoying success at AC Milan and Juventus, though some might argue that was in much tougher circumstances than Pochettino had to deal with to massively over-achieve at Spurs.
Either would surely be an upgrade on Solskjaer, but it seems there are a fair few Red Devils supporters who would prefer Allegri due to his track record of delivering silverware.

Poch is good. He’s a better version of Ole but i feel he won’t be hungry enough to win trophies. We shouldn’t twerk to good football without trophies. I will rather have Allegri who’s a proven winner than Poch who will be too comfortable with the players.

Why is nobody talking about Allegri… A proven winner… Worked with big players

Would prefer Allegri or a manager that’s actually won stuff, just saying he’s not gonna save us the way people think

Poch isnt the answer. Hes a fraud. Allegri is a proven winner and free, why not go for him?
Simeone although very defensive, would sort those pathetic excuses for footballers out also.
The team needs a winning manager with balls

I would prefer allegri but he might play boring defensive football. Tho he has won trophies.

Poch hasn't won a single trophy with Spurs and they want him to replace Ole. Poch's only achievement as a manager is UCL final.
Rather appoint Allegri instead of him in

Ngl Allegri might be better based on the fact that he won 5 straight titles from 2014-2019. Although they came from a less competitive Italian league.
Poch did well to keep Tottenham in the top 6 from 2014-2019 but alas has no trophies. https://t.co/FObDp8R57O
