Pochettino interested in Manchester United job

"Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect", United said in a statement.

Of course, United are historically a "bigger club" than Spurs in many metrics, but Pochettino must be careful if he wishes to try and be United's savior. "I don't think that will be a stumbling block to recruiting Pochettino". I think Tottenham creates more rumours in the last four-and-a-half years than any other big club.

"But he is the individual who fits the profile of what Man Utd need in terms of what he has done in the Premier League over the last five, six, seven years at both clubs".

In a surprise decision, Arsenal manager Unai Emery has dropped Mesut Ozil from the Gunners squad to face Tottenham this evening in their Carabao Cup quarter final at the Emirates this evening.

Ozil can now be backed at a tempting looking 11/2 to leave Arsenal next month, while it's Man Utd who are the 9/1 favourites to snap him up, in what could be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first signing as the club's interim manager.

We need to assess him because he had a cold and he didn't go outside to train.

"Today that's not how we are, because from day one that I signed here, every day some rumours arrive - players in, players out, signings, players that move to different clubs, coaching staff moving to a different club".


Pochettino is also vexed by Tottenham's tight wage structure and the failure of chairman Daniel Levy to sell players he no longer wants.

The Red Devils have appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on an interim basis from now until the end of the season following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho on Tuesday.

"We are focused and we are going to be focused on our job and then we are very professional".

"Like always in football, no-one can guarantee nothing and when you are a manager, look what happened", he said.

He said: "I'm not sure [winning trophies] will be in the be all and end all".

"For us at the moment, it was and is so important to set the club in a very good position in the Premier League, with access to play in the Champions League".

"You look at his belief in young players at Southampton and Tottenham, his performance levels and style of play, the way he carries himself at all times publicly and in private and he seems to be the ideals candidate".
