Manchester United 'Make Contact' With Mauricio Pochettino As Pressure Mounts On Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United 'Make Contact' With Mauricio Pochettino As Pressure Mounts On Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United have reportedly approached Mauricio Pochettino as pressure continues to mount on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer's side are 15th in the Premier League and without a win at home in the league this term, while they were also beaten in embarrassing fashion by Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir for their first Champions League win last night.

Pochettino has long been linked with the United job and Samuel Luckhurst from the Manchester Evening News says the Red Devils have made contact with his representatives.

It's been reported in the past that the Argentine coach would be keen on taking charge at Old Trafford and now, nearly a year after his sacking from Tottenham Hotspur, Pochettino is said to retain that interest.

United look to bounce back from two consecutive defeats against Everton at Goodison Park in what is a huge game for Solskjaer and his future.

Another loss could see them end up in 17th place going into a two week international break. United are apparently reluctant to sacked the 1999 treble winner but are aware they need to sound out a replacement if things do not improve quickly.

Earlier this week Pochettino was in the Sky Sports Monday Night Football studio alongside Jamie Carragher to analyse Leicester City's 4-1 win away at Leeds United.

The 48-year-old expressed his interest in returning to the game and said he would be open to managing in the Premier League for a third time - with presenter Dave Jones sneaking in a United mention at the very end of the broadcast.

"I always feel ready to be involved in the game again," Pochettino said.

Manchester United Make Contact With Mauricio Pochettino Over Replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

published at4 months ago

"I love football, it's my passion, it's my job.

"I am looking for work. I love the game. I'm working and doing things but it's not the same as being involved every single day and sharing with your players and staff. You miss that, that's the reality.

"It's not stressful when you are working. It's not stressful to go into the training ground, to prepare the team, to compete."

In his post-match press conference, Solskjaer was asked whether he was worried his position was under threat given recent results.

The Norwegian stated: "I decline to comment on such a thing. Of course, it's early on and opinions are out there all the time. You've got to stay strong.

"I'm employed by the club to do a job and I do that to the best of my ability with my staff."
