3 Reasons Why Mauricio Pochettino Could Be Next Manchester United Manager Before January

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is back and ready to manage another top flight football club.

Pochettino have learnt a lot in the past six months of his sabbatical leave and now knows the 3 rules that guarantee success in management. The first rule is that managers must avoid clubs that spend less but expect instant success or, a club that one individual {club president or chairman} make all the decision with little or no input from the manager.

Top managers must also avoid clubs that don’t have an ambition to win trophies now or in the future. Clubs that are ok with just finishing in mid-table and never in the European places.

The top manager must also avoid clubs that have an inherent tendency to sell of their best players every summer and sign youngsters only develop them and sell them off again. Such clubs don’t win trophies and the manager is never considered for a big job.

Having mastered the 3 rules, the Argentinean tactician is now waiting patiently for another top job in Manchester.

Here are the 3 reasons:


Premier League form will cost Solskjaer his job– This season, Manchester United haven’t won a single Premier League game at home. They’ve lost 4 times and drawn once to Chelsea in a dull encounter. If the club form don’t improve especially at home, Solskjaer will be sacked.

Pressure from the fans and ex-players– Manchester United chairman Ed Woodward would be forced to axe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if the fans remonstrate in anger over the inconsistent results or, if the club’s legend give him reasonable reasons to get rid of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during their punditry works.

Woodward isn’t just the chairman of the club, he is also a supporter who feels really angry when Manchester United lose and very happy when they win.

Pep Guardiola’s contract issue- Guardiola will likely be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season after six incredible years. HIs departure will leave a huge vacuum at the club but with Pochettino waiting on the wings, City won’t be too worried about searching for a top manager.

Pochettino can get City flying high in the Premier League and the Champions League.

All he ever wanted as a manager was a club that can sign him the top players who can win trophies. Spurs failed to do it and sacked him after expecting him to do more with less.

But, big clubs like Manchester United and City can deliver him the players he wants and Pochettino will be hoping he is next manager of one Europe’s richest clubs. .
