According to talkSPORT, former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson would prefer PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager.

Ferguson is said to be a huge admirer of the Argentine and has him as his first choice to take the Old Trafford job. Fergie also believes Pochettino can turn things around at United.

Pochettino is currently PSG manager, but there’s a feeling that he could be replaced soon at the French club by Zinedine Zidane, who is also a United managerial target.

Whether the Argentine will be willing to jump ship and move to Old Trafford is left to be seen.
