Pochettino touted to take Manchester United job if Mourinho is fired

There have been several discussion in many British media that Manchester United manager’s job might be vacant anytime soon. Many expect the club owner to fire Jose Mourinho before the end of the season if the performance don’t improve and if the imbroglio with vice chairman, Ed Woodward continues.

Results have not been the best so far this season at Old Trafford and the latest defeat to Tottenham at home have also increase the speculation surrounding Mourinho’s job.

Looking at the way things are shaping up, many have suggested that the first option United owner will be considering if Mourinho is ask to go is Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham. The Argentine have been at Spurs for the last four seasons and have kept the North London side relatively competitive.

He has been able to negotiate top cash for their players and integrate the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Kelvin Trippier, Eric Dier and many more into the team. His playing style is also one that many United fans would love to have at Old Trafford.

When Luis Van Gaal was sacked, he was considered for the job but the fact that he was relatively young in the job compared to a serial winner like Mourinho gave the Portuguese the job ahead of him. At this point in time, he could be getting the Old Trafford job anytime soon.

The only thing United will have to do is just buy out his Tottenham contract which he just signed at the end of last season. It will be a good decision to get a young manager like Pochettino. The major concern have just been the fact that he has never won any silverware in his career before.
