While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was removed from his post by Manchester United on Sunday, Mauricio Pochettino would be the Red Devils' priority to replace him. But the Argentinian is far from being the only profile studied…

Arrived on the bench of Paris Saint-Germain last January to replace Thomas Tuchel , Mauricio Pochettino is no longer necessarily popular among the observers of the club in the capital. Indeed, many of them reproach him for the unattractive face displayed in a match by his team which depends too much on individual exploits and which does not illustrate itself as a great collective force, knowing that its management with the young people from the Parisian training center are strongly singled out by some. Moreover, Mauricio Pochettino is also beginning to have exhausted his internal credit insofar as the question of his departure is no longer necessarily a taboo subject within PSG like you announced exclusively, the Parisian club even having Zinedine Zidane in their sights to possibly succeed him.

Mauricio Pochettino is Manchester United's priority, but…

And obviously, even if Mauricio Pochettino is still well established at PSG , a way out already seems to be taking shape for him, namely Manchester United . Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked from his post this Sunday morning after yet another poor performance against Watford this Saturday in the Premier League (4-1) and, according to information released by Sky Sport, the former coach of Tottenham is now the priority of the Red Devils to replace the Norwegian.

Sky Sports explains that Erik Ten Hag , currently on the bench of Ajax Amsterdam , is plan B in case of impossibility to recruit Mauricio Pochettino . At the same time, according to the same English media as well as the journalist from Liberation Grégory Schneider , Laurent Blanc is also present on the short-list of residents of Old Trafford .

Two tracks would nevertheless be ruled out, or at least very complex to complete, namely those leading to Zinedine Zidane and Luis Enrique . The first city would not be interested in the prospect of joining Manchester United according to THE TEAM, and this while it is not necessarily in a hurry to find a bench according to Fabrizio Romano . As for the current coach of Spain, the latter himself denied the hypothesis of an arrival on the bench of the Premier League club this Sunday with La Sexta by dropping: ” Today is the Day of the Innocents [equivalent to April Fool's Day in Spain]? “. The games remain open and, if Mauricio Pochettino would be the priority, nothing indicates 100% as it is that he will be the man who will take over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer . Unless, once again, there is an imminent dismissal which does not seem to emerge …
