It wouldn’t be a Sunday without a rumour and today the Sunday People are claiming that Manchester United are targeting Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as a possible replacement for Louis van Gaal.
The press seem to have a common theme for trying to unsettle things at Tottenham when we are on the verge of something, my memory rewinds itself to when “Redknapp for England” was all over the papers and we know how the feels feel off our Champions League hopes that season, when eventually cost Harry his job.
I feel Pochettino is different, however. He is focused on the job at hand at Spurs and it would be suicide by Daniel Levy if he was ever to let this man leave the club whilst he is transforming the style of play, team spirit and work ethic of the players.
Pochettino and his backroom staff are doing everything right at the club. There is a focus on youth, promoting from within and also with the addition of Paul Mitchell we are scouting the lower leagues for the country’s bright talent with Dele Alli being a shining example of how this works.
According to the report, United’s board were impressed with his calmness, dignity and coaching ability even before he joined Spurs 18 months ago.
What do you make of the rumour? Have your say below.
