Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is fancying filling the void left by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
The search for Manchester United‘s new long-term manager has officially begun. At this point, there has already been an array of world-renowned club managers being linked to the Red Devils and among them is PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Unlike other candidates, Pochettino is keen on taking over Manchester United. The former Tottenham Hotspur boss “would be prepared to quit” his job at the French capital outfit and make a return to the English Premier League, per Sportsmail.
The report added that Pochettino “is unhappy” at PSG and would seek a move away from the Ligue 1 side. Furthermore, he is also said to have been “frustrated” with the “big egos” of PSG stars Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
As it stands, Manchester United will be spearheaded by caretaker manager Michael Carrick, who is already looking forward to implementing change heading into his first game as temporary coach.
“We could sit and talk through all sorts of different things, for me it’s not to be looking back. I know in my own mind what I could have done better and what could be improved,” Carrick said via Manchester Evening News.
“I think it’s important that everyone looks at themselves, it’s easy to look elsewhere,” he added. “As a player I was the same, look at yourself and see if you can improve and what’s next. What’s next is a flight to Spain and prepare for the team for tomorrow.”
Carrick will manage Manchester United in its upcoming UEFA Champions League group stage match against La Liga side Villarreal and if possible, against Chelsea as well.
