Mauricio Pochettino is one of the leading candidates to take over as permanent manager of Manchester United.
Sir Alex Ferguson has already described the managerial qualities Mauricio Pochettino would bring to Manchester United as the club continues its search for a new permanent manager.
With Pochettino as one of the frontrunners to succeed interim manager Ralf Rangnick this summer, it’s easy to forget that he was previously linked with the job of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Argentine was eager to take over the reins in the middle of the season, but PSG declined United’s advances.
A new manager will be expected to have both great pedigree and a clear understanding of what is expected of him or her when Manchester United appoints him or her. Despite only having two trophies to his name, Mauricio Pochettino has a long list of accomplishments under his belt.
In November 2019, he was unfortunate to be fired from Tottenham Hotspur after a great season. For a time, he elevated them to legitimate title contenders and led them to their first-ever Champions League final.
In addition, former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson praised his work at Spurs after only two years. For his understanding of developing English players, as well as his “comfort” under pressure, he was praised as a manager.
“Well, the manager has been fantastic,” Ferguson admitted back in April 2016, when asked about his manager. “There is no denying that their track record as managers is dismal.
In the past, they’ve had a lot of them, but this one is composed. As a result, his team’s performance is a testament to his efforts.
In terms of English football, the most important factor is the number of English and young players in his team. He recognizes the benefits of casting children as characters.
“They’ve been fantastic, and they won’t let you down. Players such as [Dele] Alli, [Harry] Kane, [Ryan] Mason, [Danny] Rose, and [Eric] Dier are all from England. Right back Kyle Walker, who has been with the team for some time now.
Ralf Rangnick has already heard from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer about how Manchester United can stop Manchester City.
