Manchester United have been urged by pundit Stewart Robson to go for Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino over current interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for their next permanent head coach.
The Red Devils have largely been superb under Solskjaer, who replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford back in December, but Robson remains unconvinced by the Norwegian tactician.
Following the defeat to Wolves, he said, as quoted by the Daily Star: “Now Solskjaer has got to get the best out of these players from now until the end of the season and if he goes close to winning every game then he will get the job.
“But I don’t think that he is the right man for the job.
“I think that if you are looking for the long term then they have to go with somebody like Mauricio Pochettino.”
It’s fair to say that Solskjaer is far less experienced than some of the names who’ve been linked with the United job in recent months, but he’s also had an incredibly impressive audition for the role.
It’s hard to imagine anyone else could have made the instant impact the 46-year-old has had, with players like Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford in particular taking their games to another level under his guidance.
The results, performances and mood at the club were all dire under Mourinho but have been lifted significantly by Solskjaer, and it seems mad to now think that morale could be risked once again by another managerial change.
