Could the sacking of Tuchel see United miss out on Pochettino?

Despite today being Christmas Eve, PSG have shown their cold-blooded side by sacking manager Thomas Tuchel.

According to Sky Germany, the French giants have decided to move on from the German manager.

The decision does come as a surprise with PSG currently sat in third place in Ligue 1, just one point off the top. He also guided his side to Group H winners despite being in a tricky group that featured Manchester United and RB Leipzig.

However, it is their failure to get over the line in Europe once again last season, that may have influenced this decision.

The early favourite to take the job is former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, according to Fabrizio Romano. The sports journalist says that a deal between Pochettino and PSG could be agreed ‘within hours’.

So one team’s gain could be a certain Premier League’s team loss. That team in question is, of course, Manchester United, who have had an eye on Pochettino since he became available. 

There are many at the club who see Mauricio Pochettino as the man to take the club forward. This is despite current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær taking United to another cup semi-final last night.

The Red Devils beat Everton 2-0 thanks to goals from Cavani and Rashford to progress in the Carabao Cup.

Despite Ole bringing some stability to the club that has been missing since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, a manager like Pochettino does not become available often.

Many United fans feel that the club should have made a move for the Argentinian in the summer. They believed that a move could have carried on the momentum of the club finishing third in the Premier League.

The sacking of Tuchel will have shocked the board room of Manchester United, who will have to hope that the decision not to bring in Pochettino earlier does not come back to haunt them.
