Man Utd should go for Pochettino now - Mark Hughes

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has emerged as a candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the Norwegian's dismissal.

According to former

Manchester United

legend Mark Hughes, the club should move immediately to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager instead of waiting until the end of the season if he is the first choice.


In terms of resources, to be able to get a top manager out of a top club, clearly United are one of the few clubs that are able to do that

," Hughes told talkSPORT.

"I think for a long time United have coveted Pochettino


"I think they've wined and dined him [in the past], I think he's been out with Sir Alex [Ferguson]. I think that was well documented a few years ago.

"I think he's well thought of within the corridors of United, so it wouldn't surprise me if he's the one they really want. Whether or not he's able to come to the club quickly, that's an issue for them.

"I think if he's the man, they should just go out and go get him. This interim-to-interim position doesn't seem to be the right way to go about it.

"But clearly, if they have to wait, they seem prepared to do that. I just feel it's Pochettino that they really, really want."

Pochettino has only been in charge at


since January, though there have been talks of disagreement between him and sporting director Leonardo.
