Warnock insists Pochettino to take up Manchester United job
United’s 3-1 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool a couple of weeks back marked the end of Jose Mourinho’s lacklustre reign at Old Trafford and club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as the caretaker manager till the end of the season with immediate effect.
Manchester United have worked themselves back to winning ways with a couple of victories against Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town under their new manager but the Red Devils face a stiff test against Bournemouth on Sunday.
Along with Zinedine Zidane and Leonardo Jardim, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has been considered as one of the frontrunners for the job at Old Trafford. However, Pochettino has turned a deaf ear to all the speculations linking him with a move to Manchester United.
Pochettino is believed to be Ed Woodward’s favourite candidate to take up the job and Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has warned his colleague that he should be brave while making career decisions and not be ruled by a sense of loyalty.
“You do feel guilty, loyalty-wise. You feel that you don’t want to let anybody down.
“But, I remember when I got promotion with Notts County, Chelsea offered me a job and I thought a lot about it, turned it down and got the sack six months later. So when people talk about loyalty, I think that is a load of bull.
“You have got to do what is right for you. There is a good time to leave a club and you have got to decide if that is the right time. Not just Pochettino, but any manager.”
