Mauricio Pochettino ‘knows what he wants to do’ as Man Utd talk continues

Mauricio Pochettino “knows exactly what he wants to do” amid talk of a potential move to Manchester United, says fellow Argentine Ossie Ardiles.

Pochettino has been out of work since falling victim to the axe at Tottenham in November of last year, just six months after guiding the north London club to the Champions League final.

The former Argentina defender was heavily linked with the United job during his time at Spurs, and speculation has intensified in recent weeks amid doubts over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future at Old Trafford.

Reports suggest Red Devils chiefs have identified him as their No.1 target should they part company with Solskjaer, who has only claimed three wins in seven Premier League games this term.

And Ardiles believes Pochettino will already know which club he wants to join next, while insisting his compatriot has already received some offers to return to the dugout.

“[Pochettino] has had a few offers, but for one reason or another it’s not happened,” the former Tottenham midfielder and manager told the Evening Standard.

“He’s just waiting and he’s in a very good position, he can more or less choose where to go.”

Ardiles added: “He knows exactly what he wants to do.

“Football is his life, so he’s been watching everything and he likes to talk about football.

“He’ll take his time and, before long, he’ll be working again.”

Pochettino expressed his desire to return to management during an appearance on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football earlier this month, saying: ”I always feel ready to be in the game.

“I love football. It's not a stress. It's not a stress to go to the training ground.
