‘Mauricio Pochettino would be the perfect fit’- Teddy Sheringham believes PSG boss could fill the gap at Manchester United

The former Manchester United player believes that the PSG boss could be the perfect fit for Manchester United.

Manchester United are in a continuous hunt in finding a successor for interim manager Ralf Rangnick as he looks to take an advisory role at the club at the end of the this season. Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham believes that the former Tottenham Hotspur boss will be the ‘perfect fit’ for Manchester United going forward.

Is Mauricio Pochettino the right man for the job at Manchester United ?

The Paris Saint Germain head coach has been heavily linked to a move to Old Trafford since the start of the season as the Red Devils have struggled to find consistency this season which also saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked and Rangnick currently at the helm. Sheringham feels that Pochettino’s methods prove to be a natural successor to Sir Alex Ferguson’s legacy. Since the departure of Sir Alex, United have continued to struggle to win trophies as they did in the Ferguson era. However Teddy Sheringham believes that Pochettino could be the one to bring the glory days back to the Theatre of Dreams.

“I think, if you look along those lines, I would say the perfect fit would be Pochettino, without a doubt. I think when he was at Tottenham he wanted the ball, he wanted to play with the ball and hurt the opposition, and I think that the Manchester United crowd would love his philosophy in the way that he takes the game to the opposition.” Teddy Sheringham said.

He further added, “Obviously, he didn’t win anything at Tottenham, but if you’ve got bigger and better players. who knows what he could achieve. He would be the man for me, he would be the number one choice.”
