How could Mauricio Pochettino set up Manchester United if he replaced Jose Mourinho as manager? The Argentinian tactician finished 3rd in the Premier League last season in an impressive campaign, but is yet to win a trophy as manager. If Pochettino were to take over at Old Trafford, what would he need to do to bring back to Manchester.
Pochetttino’s record of developing young players is outstanding in England. Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Kyle Walker, Eric Dier and Luke Shaw among the biggest stars to have made their name under Pochettino. Manchester United currently have the some of the best young players to have come through the academy since the class of 92’; Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Will Greenwood and James Garner. With Angel Gomes being the standout. If Pochettino took charge, he could turn Gomes into a World Class playmaker.
Manchester United have been linked with a number of players as the January transfer window gets in sight. Kalidou Koulibaly, Tanguy Ndombele and Christian Eriksen would be perfect signings for Pochettino to impose his attractive attacking style of football at Old Trafford. Sir Alex Alex Ferguson is a big fan of the Argentine manager and could be pivotal in negotiations to bring Pochettino to Manchester United.
