Man United backed to finally appoint the true successor to Sir Alex Ferguson

Published

on

Man Utd have been told of the “perfect fit” to succeed Ralf Rangnick, with Mauricio Pochettino backed to pick up where Sir Alex Ferguson left off nine years ago.

Since the legendary Scot retired from the game in 2013, Man Utd have been in a never-ending transition period. David Moyes lasted less than one year before Louis Van Gaal took the reins.

Both he and subsequent manager Jose Mourinho won trophies, but their style of play was derided among fans and pundits alike.

His dismissal led to Ralf Rangnick’s appointment on an interim basis. The German could yet assume the role permanently, though it’s looking increasingly likely a different manager will be drafted in. That will allow Rangnick to them move upstairs in an advisory role.

Former Tottenham and current PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino continues to be heavily linked with the post. His time in Paris has not been the smooth sailing many predicted, and barely a week goes by without fresh links to Old Trafford.

Now, former United striker Teddy Sheringham has backed Pochettino to revive the club’s fortunes in the summer. What’s more, Sheringham believes the Argentine’s style of play would continue the legacy Ferguson left.

Man United crowd would ‘love Pochettino philosophy’

“Manchester United have always been brought up on that vibe of taking the game to the opposition,” Sheringham said (via Goal).

“I think, if you look along those lines, I would say the perfect fit would be Pochettino, without a doubt.

“I think when he was at Tottenham he wanted the ball. He wanted to play with the ball and hurt the opposition. I think that the Manchester United crowd would love his philosophy in the way that he takes the game to the opposition.

“Obviously, he didn’t win anything at Tottenham. But if you’ve got bigger and better players, who knows what he could achieve.

“He would be the man for me, he would be the number one choice. It’s a great experience for him.”

Sheringham baffled by Rangnick call

The former striker then took aim at the club for the way in which the season has been handled.

“It’s just a strange situation for how much of the season was left when they put him [Rangnick] in charge,” added Sheringham.

“If he leaves at the end of the season and then someone completely different, like Pochettino, comes in, it’s a whole new vibe of how you want to play football.

“This season’s going to be lost. It will be wasted and you have to start again. If the next manager brings in his own staff, his own players – it’s just a whole new revolution again. It’s such an absurd situation I see at Man United, and that’s why you get uncertainty

“You need leadership from the top to focus everybody underneath you, and then you might have a chance. Get the right manager and you never know where it’s going to take you.

“If they get it wrong again, they’re going to be in this position for another three or four years.”

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
