Man United’s shift in focus away from Mauricio Pochettino could be explained by a new Zinedine Zidane update.
Man United don’t appear to be any closer to naming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s successor.
After Zinedine Zidane’s preference was revealed, Manchester United’s reasoning for wanting an interim manager to take charge until the end of the season became clearer. Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain is the long-term favourite to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but United may not be able to appoint him until the summer.
After it became clear that Solskjaer would not be able to turn around the club’s poor form, the Red Devils ended his three-year tenure.
After heavy defeats against Leicester City, Liverpool, and Manchester City, the Norwegian was dismissed after last weekend’s 4-1 thrashing by lowly Watford.
United has been linked to a number of powerful figures.
Pochettino, the former manager of Tottenham Hotspur, seems to be the frontrunner.
However, an interim coach has been suggested, with current caretaker Michael Carrick, Ernesto Valverde, Rudi Garcia, Ralf Rangnick, and Lucien Favre all being mentioned.
Pochettino has long been a United target, but he has never been available when they have needed a new manager.
Jose Mourinho was still in charge of the club in north London when he was fired in December 2018.
Solskjaer was on a winning streak at Old Trafford when Pochettino was fired by Spurs a year later.
According to Sara Menai, a French football journalist, the PSG manager may still be difficult to reach despite reports that he would be willing to leave Paris.
The Ligue 1 leaders would prefer a permanent replacement, but former Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, who is rumored to prefer replacing France manager Didier Deschamps after the 2022 World Cup, may be unavailable.
“We know that Zinedine Zidane is a Qatari dream at PSG.
“I don’t think anyone at PSG would be too upset if Pochettino leaves and Zidane replaces him if he arrived in the middle of the season,” Menai said.
“However, the situation is much more complex.”
“The door appears to be very closed with Zidane at the moment,” she added.
He’s hoping to succeed Deschamps as France’s manager after the World Cup.
“He doesn’t appear to be interested in taking any club.”
He’s never let anyone into a club.”
As a result, Carrick, a United midfielder, is acting as caretaker manager until the end of the season.
