The issue of the new Manchester United coach continues to arouse much interest in the English media. After it was reported that Zinedine Zidane had rejected the Red Devils’ offer, the Daily Mail reported tonight that one of the prominent candidates to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Mauricio Pochettino, may resign from Paris Saint-Germain in order to sit on the bench at Old Trafford.
The English media claimed that the Argentine was “not happy in Paris” and that some of his family members still live in England. He will meanwhile continue to coach the team from City of Lights because he has not received an official request from United, but according to reports he is ready to resign from PSG. The one whose candidacy was dropped from the episode is Brandon Rogers, who convened a meeting with the Leicester players and assured them that he would not leave. Brother Eric Tan will also continue to be focused on Ajax.
Earlier it was reported in the Times that Pochettino could part with Paris even before his contract in 2023, when he told his friends he was interested in joining United next season. In addition, the Argentine is also defined as Sir Alex Ferguson’s favorite candidate, in what will surely add points to him. Laurent Blanc and Ralph Rangnick are also candidates to coach the team until the end of the season, but if Pochettino does decide to leave his team in the near term, it looks like he will get the job. By the way, it is not inconceivable that if the results under Michael Carrick are positive, he will continue until the end of the season.
