World Messi, very bad news for pochettino ...
United will turn to Ten Hag if they CANNOT seal a deal for Pochettino
EXCLUSIVE BY SAMI MOKBEL AND CHRIS WHEELER: Erik ten Hag is the alternative target for Man Utd if No 1 choice, Mauricio Pochettino, does not become the club's new manager next summer.Pochettino is the favourite to take over from interim boss Ralf Rangnick in June, providing the Argentine can cut short his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
Autumn will have been for the least mausade at PSG . The summer was however spectacular. Consequence of a five-star recruitment marked by the arrivals of Lionel Messi , Sergio Ramos , Georginio Wijnaldum , Gianluigi Donnarumma or Ashraf Hakimi . But if not during the first round against Manchester City, the capital club never managed to respond to the (huge) expectations placed in him.

The accounting situation of red and blue does not have anything worrying. The PSG floats the league 1 with no less than 11 lengths ahead of its dolphin, the Stade Rennais, and is also already assured of competing on the round of 16 of the Champions League. Second of their group and therefore under the threat of a double confrontation of all the dangers against one of the scarecrows of this beginning of the season (Liverpool, Chelsea or Bayern Munich ...), Parisians will probably have to show something else in next February.
Merson unconvinced by Rangnick at Man Utd
Paul Merson has questioned whether Ralf Rangnick's track record makes him the right person to turn around Man Utd's fortunes.Michael Carrick is currently coaching the team following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking last Sunday but Rangnick is set to be appointed as interim manager. The plan would then be for him to move into a consultancy role at the end of the season, when United intend to bring in a long-term boss.
Because if the PSG displays in the end 15 wins, 5 draws and 2 defeats in 22 meetings all competitions since the beginning of the season, the men of Mauricio Pochettino do not convince. And not only observers. Believing Team , Lionel Messi and his loved ones would seriously begin to doubt the Argentine technician, especially because of his tactical choices. The fault especially at a game plan deemed too hard.
In the entourage of the club, one also considers that the Paris coach has also lost a good part of his credit with his players. As a result, this time, a management deemed too flexible. If he does not hesitate, sometimes, to reframe his troops, his propensity to always want to sprout the susceptibilities of each reaches his limits when the PSG is barely as currently.
