ESPN FC pundit Craig Burley has said that Manchester United should appoint Mauricio Pochettino over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the permanent head coach of the club. The Red Devils were struggling to keep up with the top four places when Jose Mourinho was sacked in December but Ole has managed to bring them within two points off the same while working in an interim role.
Despite this, Burley believes Pochettino is the no-brainer option for the Red Devils in the summer, given they can trust the Argentine’s experience to work with the handsome transfer budget while competing for the Premier League crown, he said: “If it wasn’t Manchester United and there was another club to be managed, and there was a choice between Solskjaer and Pochettino, it’s not even close – it’s Pochettino. So why should it be different because it’s his former club? Over a short period at the moment he’s done a great job, but who would you prefer to try and peg back Klopp and Guardiola with a big budget? I think Pochettino would be the answer with a big budget.”
