Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the Manchester United job, and is one of the favourites for the job this summer.

However, doubts may emerge about the Argentine after another disappointing weekend, coming at the back of PSG’S 3-1 Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.

Speaking after the loss to Monaco, a frustrated PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino said: “I’m disappointed with the way we started the game. It’s unacceptable. At this level, you can’t start a game the way we did.

“We can be happy going into half-time at only 1-0 down because they could have had two or three.

“In the second half, it was better, we created chances but we paid for our first half. I think it’s really not acceptable to start a match the way we did.”

Asked if his players were still feeling the effects of their Champions League blow, Pochettino added: “It’s clear that the Champions League has done a lot of damage.

“The team should clearly let go of all that. It’s stopping us from expressing our best productivity.

“This international break should allow for a change in mentality and put us back to where we should be. We have to come back with the responsibility that goes along with putting on this shirt.”

Do you reall think Pochettino can handle the pressure of being Manchester United manager?
