Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has questioned Mauricio Pochettino’s suitability to become Manchester United boss.

Speaking on talkSPORT radio, Cundy said: “I’m a big fan of Mauricio Pochettino.

“And yes, he is world class. But this game [Paris Saint-Germain’s defeat against Real Madrid], that’s a black mark on his name.

“I think there will be a lot of Manchester United fans watching that thinking ‘maybe he isn’t quite the real deal, maybe he’s not that elite manager’.

“We just saw [Madrid manager] Carlo Ancelotti do a number on him, Ancelotti has been around the block for a while.”
