The media column inches relating to the long-term future of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer are starting to grow.
Our lead article yesterday (Friday) – storm-clouds-gathering-at-manchester-united – concentrated on the possibility of Solksjaer being axed if his stuttering side does not beat Everton this lunchtime with the former Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino, being linked with the job.
Today, two stories caught my eye, in the media, relating to this high-profile topic.
The first, courtesy of The Daily Star implies that Pochettino is so keen to, eventually, become the manager of Manchester United he has twice rejected approaches to take over at Barcelona.
However, the second, courtesy of ESPN infers that another manager could be in line to take over at Old Trafford, the current RB Leipzig coach, Julian Nagelsmann.
Now, if the worse was to happen and Manchester United push the panic button, I have to admit that Pochettino would be my choice.
While at Tottenham, Pochettino took the club to the brink of a Premier League title and also to a Champions League Final, something I cannot see Solksjaer doing, can you?
