Solskjaer Out, Pochettino In, Man Utd Squad’s Opinion Given

Manchester United could be about to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Mauricio Pochettino.

Solskjaer has now overseen four defeats already this term, with the 2-1 loss to Istanbul Basaksehir coming after previous scalps against Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Arsenal.

Previously, it’s been reported that some United players are at odds with Solskjaer over his tactics and training ground methods.

But The Athletic insist this isn’t the case and that the dressing room like the 47-year-old, who has been in charge for nearly two years now.

It’s claimed ‘they respect him and the coaching sessions’ but, unfortunately for the Norwegian, that might not be enough for him to stay put.

United have sounded out Pochettino about taking over at Old Trafford and could turn to the Argentine, who revealed he was available during an appearance on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football earlier in the week.

United have already gone through three managers since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

The Red Devils hired David Moyes and after Moyes, came Louis van Gaal before then turning to Jose Mourinho.
