Solskjaer: Mauricio Pochettino Would Perform Well At Manchester United For This Two Reasons

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Mauricio Pochettino’s excellent man-management skills are just one of the factors that would make him excel if appointed as Manchester United boss.Solskjaer who has already stated his own ambitions to take the role on a full-time basis has accepted the speculation surrounding Pochettino – “because he has done well” – even though he knows little about the Argentinian’s management style. He said: “I’ve only met him once myself. He was a very nice man to speak to and we had a nice chat. He’s probably a very good man manager, but you’ve got to ask someone else. From the outside, he looks like that anyway.” As well as his man-management style, Solskjaer also believes the style of football Tottenham play is what appeals most to United, though the Norwegian was quick to admit he also tries to play in the same fashion.“He’s got good players, it’s the same with me,” he added. “It’s easier to play an attacking way and your way when you’ve got good players, and he’s got lots of good players.” Despite the positive start he has made to his reign, Solskjaer revealed he has had no further discussions about his situation with the United hierarchy. He added: “No, we’ve not had that conversation. You don’t plan five or six months ahead and then suddenly, after two weeks, change that. No, nothing’s changed. We just keep working every single day on improving the team here. I work with a fantastic coaching staff, I have to say. We’ll put a plan together on how we want to look the next few months.”Photo Credit: Getty
