Potential Premier League return for Pochettino as PSG open talks with world-class manager

Posted by

Zinedine Zidane was one of a handful of top managers recently linked with taking over from Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, according to recent reports, the former Real Madrid boss could be eyeing the Paris-Saint Germain job.

That’s according to a recent report from Le10Sport journalist Hadrien Grenier, who has reported that Zidane is now open to the prospect of one day managing the Ligue 1 giants with the club’s hierarchy initiating talks with the Frenchman.

Following his recruitment, at the start of this year, Mauricio Pochettino remains in charge of the Parisians.

However, in light of the mounting pressure on Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, should the Norweigan be relieved of his duties, it could very well spark a managerial merry-go-round that includes both Pochettino and Zidane.

Pochettino has long been tipped to one day take the reins at Old Trafford since his time as Tottenham Hotspur’s manager.

However, following a chain of events that saw Solskjaer remain in charge of the Red Devils’, Pochettino ended up accepting the Paris-Saint Germain job, but that could all be set to change in the near future.

Although Zidane is understood to be on the Glazers’ managerial short-list – so is Pochettino (TalkSPORT) and should the French tactician opt to work on home soil, his decision could very well pave the way for Pochettino to return to the Premier League.

  1. With the managerial vacancy manifest should OGS get sacked, the situation looks brighter now for United with more elite managers becoming available.
    If as speculated Zidane takes over PSG as manager and that will allow Pochettino to move over to Manchester United.
    Ter Hag of Ajax Amsterdam and Diego Simeone of Atletico Madrid are also among the managerial shortlist of Manchester United. However the hierarchy should not drag the appointment too long as with international break imminent, Manchester United should quickly do so to at least save the season from catastrophe.

      1. Exactly, Simeone is not an option because of his style. I have reservations about Conte for the same reason, although I think the board are afraid of his combative manner – he won’t be their puppet like OGS. Ten Hag would be my ideal candidate but doubt he’d abandon Ajax mid-season. However, the priority is the removal of Ole ASAP – he’s inept.

    1. What fool would take over at Utd? Suicide mission. Brucie is available though………
      £1.5BILLION laid out since last won title, and still having to bribe mercenaries to wear the shirt.
      Until they escape the past there is no future.

  2. Until the board puts the football side of the club in the control of people who understand the game and know how to run a club they will continue to struggle. Too many decisions being taken by money men who have no clue about the game. Forgetting the Liverpool result, when this season have United performed to a top top level? They haven’t. They have scrapped by because the fixtures have been good to them but now they are facing the better teams cracks are being exposed. Something need to change and change fast, but do the money men realise this? I am not too sure.
