Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not bothered by talk of Mauricio Pochettino coming to Manchester United

by Leo Nieboer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that talk of Mauricio Pochettino taking his job at Manchester United does not faze him.

The Argentine was relieved of his duties as Spurs manager after five years at the helm, with the North London side sitting 14th in the Premier League table.

With Jose Mourinho stepping into his place at Spurs, it has obviously been speculated that Pochettino, in turn, would not eventually step into the role at United.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the meeting with Sheffield United, Solskjaer laughed off the talk of the former Spurs boss taking his job.

You get the feeling that, one day, Pochettino will manage United. He is too lucrative, too on brand, for United to ignore forever.

But perhaps it will come at the wrong time – too late, much like with Mourinho, who would have been perfect in 2013, or at least a lot better than what happened.

Either way, whether you believe in it or not, the Solskjaer project will continue for some time, during which Pochettino is likely to find himself another role, potentially at Bayern Munich in January.
