Mauricio Pochettino has been identified as Solskjaer's potential replacement

Mauricio Pochettino touted to be waiting for Manchester United hotseat

According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur legend Ossie Ardiles has suggested that Mauricio Pochettino is readying himself to take over at Manchester United.

The Argentine manager has been out of a job for nearly a year now since parting ways with Tottenham Hotspur.

Regarded as one of the best young managers around, there should be no shortage of suitors given his impressive track record of maximizing the potential at his disposal.

He was twice approached by Barcelona, while Benfica and Monaco have also made their interest known.

United are also in the fray and have been linked with him since he left Spurs last November. Ardiles has indicated that the Red Devils still feature amongst Pochettino’s options.

“He’s just waiting and he’s in a very good position, he can more or less choose where to go.”

Ardiles has revealed that Pochettino knows what he wants to do. He has kept a keen eye on developments and is expected to return to management sooner rather than later.

Solskjaer needs all the help he can get
Solskjaer has been given more time by Woodward

“He’ll take his time and, before long, he’ll be working again.”

Last chance saloon?

Whether the United job becomes available depends a lot on how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer performs in the given months.

While he has to an extent steadied the ship since taking over, the Norwegian has failed to inculcate an identity. This coupled with a lack of consistency has seen him come under the scanner.

Ed Woodward, however, is keen to give Solskjaer more time. He enjoys a good relationship with the manager and is reluctant to sack him.

More Manchester United News

United have enjoyed a mixed start to the season. Results have picked up of late and hopefully, we are now on the rise.

The club finished third while also making the semifinals of three cup competitions last season. Hopefully, we can build upon it and even end the campaign with a trophy.

Whether it is Solskajer or Pochettino, the title drought cannot be allowed to continue for long.
