Mauricio Pochettino is interested in becoming manager of Manchester United, according to reports. The former Tottenham boss was also said to be keen on taking over at Old Trafford after Jose Mourinho was sacked.
With the Argentine now available, it has led to a number of United fans on Twitter to plead with the club to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager:
I’m on both knees.

We need to do something as we are going backwards fast poch or Rogers would turn us around. However I still think most managers would get really frustrated under current owners #GlazersOut #WoodwardOut

Pochettino’s availability was always going to make things difficult for Solskjaer, and the pressure will mount on the Norwegian if United don’t get results in their next two fixtures.
Coincidentally, the club’s next game is against Spurs this evening, and with the Manchester derby coming hot on its tail this weekend, calls could become louder for Pochettino to replace Solskjaer.
At the moment, though, United remain firmly behind the current man in charge but things can change very quickly in football.
