Man United are still considering Mauricio Pochettino claims pundit

Tottenham Hotspur are in turmoil in the Premier League at the moment, dropping 11 points out of the last possible 12.

This has seen them slip from League title contenders to a club fighting tooth and nail for a top four spot, with Arsenal, Man United, and Chelsea lurking close behind.

Spurs are still enjoying a club record-equalling journey in the Champions League this season, and will not want to give up the chance to host top European nights under the lights at the new stadium next season.

With eight games remaining, Tottenham are just one point above Arsenal, three above Man United, and four above Chelsea.

Despite the recent dip in form, it had looked as if Spurs would hold on to star manager Mauricio Pochettino for next season, however one pundit believes that is still in doubt.

Many believe that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s success at Man United and the appointment of Zidane at Real Madrid puts a stop to any rumours of Poch leaving.

However, Jamie Redknapp thinks Man United will still be considering the Argentine.

He said (Metro): “Should this dip become a slump, United finish outside the top four and fail to win the Champions League, they will not ride into next season on a wave of positivity. There would surely be question marks over whether Solskjaer could challenge [Man] City and Liverpool for the title. Matters have been complicated by the return of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid. Now that door has closed to Mauricio Pochettino, United are in pole position to try to tempt him away from Tottenham.

“Pochettino was the No 1 candidate to replace Jose Mourinho. He has an outstanding track record when it comes to improving players and has established Spurs as a top-four side, despite having his hands tied in the last two transfer windows. Regardless of Tottenham’s recent poor run of form, he remains the strongest candidate and would become an even more attractive option should United’s season not finish on a high.”
