Jamie Redknapp makes big claim about Pochettino’s future

Since Jose Mourinho was sacked on Tuesday, speculation has been running rife as to who the next Manchester United manager will be.

Based on the rumours in the press so far it seems as if former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino are the favourites for the role at United.

Since then Manchester United have appointed former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the interim manager until the end of the season.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp today told Sky Sports News that he expects Pochettino to take over the role at the end of the season, dubbing the Argentine the ‘special one’.

“I think Manchester United will get him. I think they will go for it and I think they will get him,” Redknapp said.

“Of course [Spurs fans should be worried] because he’s the special one, he’s a great manager that everyone would want at their club.

“Tottenham have got to do everything in their power to keep him, it’s as simple as that. He’s a very talented manager, the players adore him and play for him and you can see why Manchester United would want him.”

This comes after former Man Utd defender Gary Neville described Pochettino as the perfect man for the job earlier in the week.

Pochettino has so far been coy about the link insisting that he is focussed on his job at Tottenham. Only time will tell if the role could prove too tempting for Pochettino to resist.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It’s time fir all these people to keep their opinions to themselves! All they are doing is creating issues for all concerned
    This happens far too often regarding transfers, players ability, all they are doing is selling papers and tv programmes
    It’s time the football authorities intervened and put a stop to garbage reporting!
    Lets have facts! Not this rubbish

  2. If you ever needed proof that the media is obsessed with ManUre, this was it. I tuned into 5 Live the morning of his sacking at about 09:55 for the news bulletin. At around 10:20 I arrived and still no news just “Jose got the sack”. Great to see the Spurs Press Officer got some knuckle drager from the media to shut up about Poch and Man U. Well done. We are going to have to put up with this nonsense until either Poch says I want to go, or Spurs tell little Mr Ed that £200m won’t buy him.

    Who in their right mind would want that job? A bunch of over paid individuals, no defence, no ethos other than money (fans and players).

    Renyar if I may correct you; they are trying to sell papers but the drop in circulation figures suggest that they are failing.
