Mauricio Pochettino: Remembering when he confronted Mike Dean after Burnley v SpursDespite being the current head coach of Paris Saint-Germain, Pochettino is - at time of writing - the bookmakers' favourite to become the next full-time United boss.
The ball is in Mauricio Pochettino’s court as Manchester United target the former Spurs boss to take over at Old Trafford.
United made an approach for the Argentine manager this week, which was rebuffed by Paris Saint-Germain, and the Manchester Evening News claim ‘the onus now is on Pochetino to inform his present employers he wishes to have his employment terminated’.

His job is to stabilise the club by getting them back into top-four contention and in line for Champions League success. To do that, he will need to get the best out of stars such as Donny van de Beek, Jadon Sancho and Paul Pogba. Rangnick’s high-intensity pressing style is likely to re-shape how Man Utd play.
Jamie Carragher says he would.
“Pochettino has to get out of the club. If he has the chance to go to Manchester United. I would be gone tomorrow and it’s because of those three stars,” said Carragher on CBS.
The former Liverpool defender claimed the reluctance of Mesi, Neymar and Mbappe to track back played a huge part in City’s win at the Etihad.
The thought was echoed by fellow pundit Thierry Henry, who claimed Pochettino is unable to put his imprint on the team due to the talented trio.
“If you want to win the Champions League, you cannot defend with seven players,” said Henry.
“It is impossible, I don’t care who you are. The full backs are exposed, so it’s virtually a three vs one, three vs two on the pitch.”
