Former

Tottenham

winger

Andros Townsend

who was coached by

Pochettino

at

Tottenham

, believes Pochettino is an incredible coach and he would be a perfect choice for

Man Utd

if they ever want to replace

Solskjaer

.

“I do think the United job would be perfect for him in the sense of the youngsters they have coming through” Townsend said

“They continually bring youngsters through the academy. He’d be perfect to nurture them and make them into world-class players like he has done before at

Spurs

.

“But

Ole

’s done a good job; he steadied the ship when he came in. He is a disciple of

Sir Alex Ferguson

and he’s building for the future as well, so it’s a tough one.

“Yes, Ole is doing well, but do you want to miss out on a world-class manager like

Pochettino?

“He was incredible. He loves improving players, especially young players. He loves finding little gems in the academy and reserves and making them into household names.

“You’ve seen that with the likes of

Harry Kane

and

Dele Alli

and the players he brought through at Spurs. He’s an incredible manager. Any big club in the world would be lucky to have him.”
