The talks of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sack is increasing as he is unable to get the results expected of him so far this season. The defeat suffered against Arsenal is something Man United owners will not take for granted.

Man United have not won any of their last couple of games in the Premier League at Old Trafford which is one of the worst records in the club’s history.

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to take over the job after claims that he has held talks with the Red Devils chiefs.

However, it is claimed that Man United legendary manager Alex Ferguson will give his nod to the choice of the Argentina international manager if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as other managers will also be available without a job.

The fact that Mauricio Pochettino qualified the North London outfit for the Champions League gives him the credential to be tipped for the job at Old Trafford.

Alex Ferguson is well respected at Man United owing to his history and achievement at the club. His words will not be snubbed in the club’s search for their glory days.

However, Mauricio Pochettino has made it clear that he is ready to have the job because he has been off it for almost a year and misses being in the dugout. He is currently attracting interests from other clubs like Juventus, Paris Saint Germain, and Real Madrid.

“I discovered an amazing people in this country, an amazing culture. I am in love,” Pochettino told Sky Sports

“I was always ready to be involved in the game again. I love football. It’s my passion, not my job.

“It’s not a stress when you are working. It’s not a stress to go to the training ground. It’s not a stress to prepare for a game. It’s not a stress to compete… look, my hair is still getting longer and longer!”

However, Man United are yet to make any official statement on the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as talks and speculations have been based on the poor results.
