Some Manchester United fans have called for former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following an update.
Manchester Evening News had claimed the talented Argentine is keen on the Old Trafford hot-seat as he’s enchanted by the possibility of managing the club.
It was also stated Pochettino originally wanted the job after Jose Mourinho was sacked which reiterates the news that came out in the past.
It’s believed that was the main reason the former Southampton man lost his job with Spurs as he’d lost his focus and clearly wanted out for United.
With Solskjaer underperforming at the moment and Pochettino technically being a free-agent, it seems to be a ‘too good to be true’ scenario.
@ManUtd SACK HIM

There are still those calling for patience for Solskjaer but last weekend’s display is one that’s near impossible to defend.
United had had a full week’s rest before taking on Aston Villa at home and still fell woefully short.
More alarming than the 2-2 result was the unacceptable performance, particularly in the first-half when the players may as well have not shown up at all.
Solskjaer has a huge task on his hands to turn things around but poor results against Tottenham and Manchester City could see him lose his job.
