It is not just transfer talk between players that is taking up a lot of column inches at the minute, but the future of managers have also been thrown into the equation.
Mauricio Pochettino has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham Hotspur on November 19, it was reported that the Argentine would be back in work within a matter of weeks, but as we head into April, he is still unemployed.
At the time, Ole Gunner Solskjaer was under a lot of pressure and many believed he would be axed in favour of the former Southampton manager, but a recent run of good form has seen the Red Devils stick with the Norwegian.
Let’s have a look at what clubs could be available for Pochettino next season:
Mauricio Pochettino’s Next Club: Manchester United @ 4/11 Paddy Power
Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with a move to Manchester United for a number of years, and everyone expected Ole Gunner Solskjaer to de dumped in record time when he became available. The Red Devils have since kept faith with Solskjaer, but Pochettino continues to hang around like the Grim Reaper waiting to take his job.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Next Club: Manchester City @ 10/3 Paddy Power
Despite Pep Guardiola saying he is happy to stay with Manchester City even if they are suspended from the Champions League, he could still go back on his word if it actually happens. Pochettino would be an ideal replacement for Guardiola, he’s also done something Pep has not done yet. That is take a Premier League side to a Champions League Final.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Next Club: Real Madrid @ 13/2 Paddy Power
Despite being a Real Madrid legend as a player and manager, Zinedine Zidane’s job is never truly safe. As a manger, Zizou has won the La Liga once and the Champions League on three separate occasions, but fans are still frustrated with him. They have not been happy with the way he has handled the Gareth Bale situation, while they are also unhappy with the signing of Eden Hazard. It’s seems he is losing their respect. If they fail to win the league title or the Champions League, he could see his time as manager once again end prematurely. If that does happen, Pochettino would be one of the favourites to step in and replace him.
