Real Madrid welcome Pochettino, Ten Hag is the perfect manager to bring back the glory days at Man Utd

Real Madrid are said to be targeting Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino, which means Manchester United could have competition.

There was a time, when Pochettino should probably be the manager of Man Utdwith Sir Alex Ferguson just one of the supporters at Old Trafford.

That moment has now passed and United must look elsewhere.

Ralf Rangnick and new CEO Richard Arnold is said to be interested in Ajax coach, Erik ten Hagwhile the players are said to be firmly established at the Pochettino camp.

United wants the right philosophy and title, which is why Ten Hag can and should be the man to lead United back to the top of the Premier League and in Europe.

Ten Hag could be spearheading a new ‘project’ but unlike former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he has an stellar background which suggests he has a much better chance of performing.

Since taking over at Ajax in 2017, he has led the Dutch side to win two Eredivisie titles, two Dutch Cups and a Dutch Super Cup.

Pochettino blamed a lack of money for not taking Spurs to new heights, but he left the North London side without winning a trophy.

It would be a big surprise if he didn’t lead PSG to the Ligue 1 title this campaign, and add that trophy to the Coupe de France, and the Trophee des Champions he won there.

The Argentinian knew he would be judged on how his side performed in the Champions League, and they went into the second leg of the last 16 against Real Madrid in Spain with a 1-0 lead. .

Mauricio Pochettino has Premier League management experience under him, but what do Man Utd supporters want? Four top qualifications or a genuine title fee?

There’s a cultural reset that needs to start with Rangnick, and while there’s no guarantee, if United let Ten Hag go, they’ll lose someone who played hot, title-winning football, promoting youth, has seen a number of star players depart, but still employs well, and maintains the highest standards.

He will also be given a much larger budget at Old Trafford, and has experience working as sporting director at Utrecht, which should help Rangnick.

I think Pochettino is capable of some of that, but not all, that’s why the Dutchman, for me, has the edge.


Philosophy is important to a new United and there is a lot of work behind the scenes to ensure United return to their place.

The concern with Pochettino is that he will eventually secure the top four but will not take United to that next step. That might please owners, but it won’t please backers.

Arnold is preparing to make his first big decision since replacing Ed Woodward. We hope that he does the right thing.
