From jubilation to exasperation in the space of a week, being a Manchester United fan appears to be an exhausting endeavour.
The club was on such a high following their 5-0 dismantling of RB Leipzig, there was hope their fixture against a staggering Arsenal would end in three points, and yet they walked away from Old Trafford empty handed.
Then came Wednesday, where a trip to Istanbul Basaksehir was there to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men a renewed boost, but they weren’t able to take advantage of that either.
Succumbing to a 2-1 loss, the Norwegian must now prepare their trip to Everton with renewed pressure on his job and articles claiming he is close to being replaced by Mauricio Pochettino.
This differs from media to media, but the general consensus is that Solskjaer could find it hard to come back from a loss against Carlo Ancelotti’s men, but if United want the Argentine to take over, they might need to act quickly.
That’s because claims from France suggest Paris Saint-Germain are looking around for someone to replace Thomas Tuchel, and Pochettino is among them.
It allegedly comes from RMC Sport, as Le10 Sport relay the information from the TV and radio station, claiming that while Max Allegri’s name is the one that returns the most, the former Tottenham manager is mentioned.
They explain Pochettino used to play at Paris Saint-Germain back when he was a player, and he ‘would like to continue his career’ with the Ligue 1 champions.
We’ll have to wait and see if this is true, since Tuchel is expected to see out his contract should everything not collapse around him in the next few weeks (a failure to qualify from the Champions League group stages would likely seal his fate), but if Ed Woodward is seriously considering the ex-Spurs man, he might have to move quickly.
