Manchester United might want to take note of PSG players’ issues with Mauricio Pochettino

Posted by

Manchester United are continuing to be strongly linked with a move to hire Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino as their long-term replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils needed to make a change after their dire recent form, and the Transfer Window Podcast has provided plenty of details about the club’s pursuit of Pochettino, as well as other possible candidates in the frame for the job.

One intriguing detail from the podcast, however, is that PSG players are not happy with Pochettino’s tactics, even though the Argentine is personally popular in the Parc des Princes dressing room.

It’s vital that Man Utd get their next managerial appointment right, but it could be that Pochettino actually wouldn’t be the best fit to manage this group of big-name players.

Mauricio Pochettino’s tactics haven’t gone down well at PSG

The 49-year-old did his most impressive work in his time in charge of Tottenham, where he wasn’t working with as many big names, or with as much pressure and expectation on his shoulders.

If Pochettino’s methods haven’t gone down well with Neymar and co. at PSG, there’s every chance he’d face similar issues with egos like Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba at Old Trafford.

Most United fans would surely still view the former Spurs boss as the best candidate out there, but this detail should perhaps make the club pause and think.

Pochettino failed to win the Ligue 1 title with PSG last season, and his side haven’t been too convincing in the Champions League either, losing 2-1 away to Manchester City last night in another setback in the one competition they’ll be so desperate to win.

  1. easy solution get rid of pogba Ronaldo will always give his best and wants to win Pogba thinks he deserves to.

  2. Maybe it’s time to ditch the big name stars. At United these big name stars haven’t exactly set the world alight this season, with some very lazy and naive performances. These so called “stars” need to realise they are not playing for the manager, they are playing for the club and if they do not wish to give their all for the club then they should not be in the team. Anyway I doubt Ronaldo will be with United more than one more season and Pogba I expect to leave this summer.
