Mauricio Pochettino backed for Manchester United by Gary Neville who reckons Tottenham boss would be perfect Jose Mourinho replacement

The Spurs manager has proven himself to be one of Europe’s top coaches during his time in North London, transforming his side from perennial chokers to title contenders.

However, Red Devils favourite Neville believes his former club would be perfect for Pochettino in the future.

Jose Mourinho’s brand of football hasn’t gone down too well with the Old Trafford faithful, who yearn for a return to the old days of blistering attacks and fast-paced pressing.

Pochettino is a master of intense tactical warfare, and Neville reckons the Argentine would go down a treat at the Theatre of Dreams.

Neville told Sky Sports: “When Jose Mourinho’s time is finished at Manchester United, whether that’s one year, two years.

“I hope it’s three years and I hope he wins multiple Premier League titles because I think he’s a fantastic manager, but this is the guy I would want to manage the club I support.

“I think he’s the guy who deserves it. It’s probably the same for Paris Saint-Germain, it’s probably the same for Real Madrid.

“He is a big [issue] in a sense that if he leaves, it will be an issue for Tottenham. He is extracting the maximum from very limited resources.”
