Mauricio Pochettino Celebrated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Dramatic Winner Against Bayern Munich

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he celebrated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's dramatic Champions League final winner at the Nou Camp in 1999.

The Argentine was in attendance for the memorable clash and though he wasn't supporting Manchester United or Bayern Munich, he could not help but leap off his seat when Solskjaer scored the second of two stoppage time goals for the Red Devils to seal a treble-winning season in the most incredible fashion.

And speaking prior to the visit of United to Wembley, Pochettino has shared his memory of his opposite number's last-gasp winner.

"I have good memories because I remember when he scored after 90 minutes at the Camp Nou, I was with Tony Jimenez, my goalkeeping coach," Pochettino said in his presser, via the Standard.

"We were there at the Camp Nou in 1999, I remember him when he scored the second goal in the injury time and how I shouted for Manchester United, that was unbelievable.

"We were neutral people watching a fantastic game. I have good memories of him. It was this type of moment, on Sunday we are going to meet at Wembley when 20 years ago I was shouting a goal that he scored for Manchester United and now we are going to play them at Wembley."

Is Pochettino the man for United or will Solskjaer get the job permanently?
