Thierry Henry explains why Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane will “snub Manchester United.”
Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane, according to Thierry Henry, are unlikely to join Manchester United.
Pochettino will stay at PSG, according to the Arsenal legend, while Zidane is eyeing the France job.
Thierry Henry, an Arsenal legend, believes Mauricio Pochettino or Zinedine Zidane will not be the next Manchester United manager.
Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the weekend, the Argentine, who is currently in charge of Paris Saint-Germain, is the favorite to take over at Old Trafford.
Pochettino has long been a United fan, and the club is attempting to persuade him to take over.
Because it’s expected that luring him away from PSG in the middle of the season will be difficult and costly, United are now looking for an interim manager to guide them through the rest of the season until Pochettino becomes available in the summer.
According to reports, the former Tottenham Hotspur manager is unhappy in Paris and wants to return to the Premier League, but Henry is skeptical.
Pochettino’s move to Old Trafford would be a “headache,” according to the Frenchman, who expects the 49-year-old to stay at Parc des Princes.
“I’m not sure if they’ll be able to get him,” Henry said on CBS Sports.
“As a coach of a team like Paris Saint-Germain, you want to see it through.”
“However, if you go to Man United, you’re almost guaranteed to get a different type of headache trying to find a way to balance it out, because that’s exactly what he’s trying to do with Paris Saint-Germain right now.”
“I personally don’t believe he’ll go.”
PSG leads Ligue 1 by 11 points, but they have yet to truly impress anyone as Pochettino struggles to get the best out of a team that is overflowing with attacking options.

Lionel Messi’s arrival may have been sensational, but by teaming up with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in a front three, PSG has become unbalanced, as evidenced by PSG’s 2-1 loss to Manchester City on Wednesday.
If Pochettino isn’t available, Man United may pursue Ajax manager Erik ten Hag or Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.
Zinedine Zidane is said to have turned down the opportunity to join the Red Devils.
