Former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell has stated that Mauricio Pochettino is ‘ready made’ for Manchester United.
Ralf Rangnick was pulled in as Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s successor at Old Trafford, but is only on a short-term deal until the end of the season.
That’s why United are still looking for a new long-term manager from this summer, and Paris Saint-Germain boss Pochettino has long been hailed as a candidate.
The Argentine will only have one year left on his deal in the French capital at the end of the season and has struggled to repeat the same influence he had at Tottenham.
However, his reputation in England remains extremely positive after his years at Spurs, which he led to the Champions League final, and Campbell believes he fits in perfectly with United.
“I think it has been directed at Pochettino all along. Just as he can bring the whole club together and really encourage the whole place, it would make Man United a good world,” he told Football Insider.
“He has really shown that he can bring the kids through too. There may be better leaders out there, but there is no one better than Pochettino in terms of bringing the kids through and getting the best out of them. I think he is tailored for United.
Campbell’s comments come after an admission from United legend Gary Neville, who said he would love to see Pochettino come in after the club’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle United last week.
Since then, United have returned to winning with a 3-1 win over Burnley, but starting 2022 a full 22 points behind leading Manchester City.
A battle for a top-4 spot and Champions League football is now United’s main goal, where they currently sit four points behind Arsenal, however, with two games left.
