Jamie Carragher Explains Why Mauricio Pochettino Will Quit Spurs For Manchester United

Jamie Carragher Explains Why Mauricio Pochettino Will Quit Spurs For Manchester United

Spurs fans aren't happy with the idea that Mauricio Pochettino might leave their club to join Manchester United. Jamie Carragher has explained the reality of why the Spurs boss will and should move.

As soon as Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United the rumours started about who might be next in the hot seat at Old Trafford, following David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and now Mourinho.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken charge for now but it's likely the United legend will only be in charge till the end of the season when the Red Devils will appoint a full time boss.

The name on most people's lips right now is Mauricio Pochettino. The Spurs' boss has done well in north London and has a lot of fans.

But the fact that Spurs are ahead of United in the league added to the fact that fans don't want to lose their manager has led to many to be annoyed at the idea he'd leave them for United.

Writing in his Telegraph column Jamie Carragher explained the reason he thinks Pochettino should move up north, saying:

"If Mauricio Pochettino is offered the Manchester United job, he has to take it. That is a hard for Tottenham Hotspur supporters to accept. Sadly for them, it is inevitable that they are prey to a more powerful Premier League rival...

"It does not matter how great Spurs' new stadium is and how many supporters fill it. It does not even matter what they win this season or over the next few years. Spurs are not Manchester United. They will never be a big as Manchester United."

And Carragher's evaluation went even further, adding, "It is naïve to believe Pochettino will be content working at a club where qualifying rather than winning the Champions League is the measure of success. He does not want the comfort of knowing he is safe from the sack if he finishes in the top four.

"He wants to win the Premier League and Champions League. He knows which clubs are best equipped to do it, not just on the occasional basis, but every season. He knows these chances do not come around often. If he does not take it this time and an alternative candidate succeeds, it may never come around again."

After being questioned about his opinion the former Liverpool defender took to social media to defend himself:

United will likely go after Pochettino in the summer, if the former Espanyol and PSG defender believes he has more of a chance of winning the Premier League at Old Trafford then he may well go.

It's a hard pill to swallow for Spurs fans but the summer will answer all the questions.
