PSG chairman Nasser El Khelifi is reportedly unhappy with Mauricio Pochettino’s desire to replace Ole Gunnar Soulshire as Manchester United manager. Nasser al-Khalifa’s dissatisfaction with the move comes amid reports that Pochettino is one of Manchester United’s key contenders for the club’s head coach, replacing Soulshire, and that he is currently interested in becoming United’s coach, following in the footsteps of PSG.
Soulshire have been sacked as Manchester United manager following an earlier defeat to Watford. Following this, they started looking for a new coach. Although they are looking for a number of prominent coaches for the position, the interest of many, including the club’s renowned coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, puts Pochettino’s potential for coaching. Meanwhile, there have been reports that sources close to Pochettino have told the English club that he wants to take over as Manchester United manager.
Nasser Al-Khalifa, the president of the French club, knows that he could be ready to leave PSG if Manchester United decide to move on with the move to bring in Pochettino as their new coach. But 90Min’s indications are that he is not happy with the situation. If Manchester United approach Pochettino, there are indications that the PSG chairman will ask them to pay him huge compensation. In any case, it is unlikely that Manchester United will be able to acquire Pochettino so easily.
At the same time, there are reports that Nasser Al Khalifi is keen to bring in Zinedine Zidane as their new coach to replace Pochettino if he leaves for Manchester United. It is expected that more details will come out in the coming days.
