Man Utd tipped to give Solskjaer the boot and hire Pochettino

Manchester United have been tipped to tell Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he has got the boot which will see Mauricio Pochettino land the job.

The Norweigan has come under huge pressure after Sunday's shock result to Tottenham.

The Red Devils were thrashed 6-1 at Old Trafford at the hands of their old manager in Jose Mourinho in their biggest home defeat since 2013.

It has not left United chiefs very happy and Pochettino has been sounded out over potentially taking over.

However, Solskjaer still clings to his job and there is no immediate threat to his job.

But if results continue to go south, it will only be a matter of time.

And that could finally see Pochettino take the reins at Old Trafford – a post he has been linked to time and time again.

Former United star Alan Brazil believes the time is right to hand the Argentine the job after impressing with Spurs.

Brazil said on talkSPORT: "I thought it was maybe too big a job for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"But then they went on a great run and then at the end of the season we all suddenly thought United were going to be back up there.

"And I thought fair enough, they've stuck with Ole and he’s producing.

“But here we go again… Pochettino is still there, and you just look at his CV, it’s fantastic.

“If they had to make an appointment and say ‘see ya later’ to Ole, he’d be perfect for Manchester United.

“I’d like to see [Solskjaer] do well, I really would, but the stats don’t lie and now he’s really up against it.

“Is he buying the players now? I'm not 100 per cent if he is. If he is, why is he not buying in defenders to stop that rot?

"You can’t keep giving goals away like that, it’s an absolute joke.

“So they’re back to square one as far as I’m concerned.”
