Manchester United job is not the only target for Pochettino in the EPL


Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with a return to management with Man United but that is not the only team he has his eyes on in the English Premier League.

The Argentine has been without a job for a year after he was sacked by the North London last November as a result of the negative results at the start of the season. The hope of a return to the dugout has surfaced with the Red Devils manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under the pressure of losing his job.

After a poor start of the season, the defeats suffered by the Red Devils in Premier League against Arsenal, and the Champions League against the Turkish outfit Istanbul placed the Norwegian manager’s job in the air and there were speculations that he would be sacked by the club for Mauricio Pochettino to take over.

Now it has been reported that Man United is not the only team being targeted by the Argentina international for management in the English Premier League as he also has his eyes on Frank Lampard’s job at Chelsea but that is definitely not happening anymore with the resurgence of the team since October.

The Blues team have since returned to winning ways and are very close to the top of the summit as they are fourth on the log. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is very impressed with the performance of the team and will not be considering any sack.

Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino is also linked with other clubs outside England with Juventus, Athletic Bilbao, and Inter Milan believed to be interested in his service.

Howbeit, the Red Devils chief, Ed Woodward have made it very clear that they will not be sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer which makes it another blow for the former Tottenham boss.
