United or Tottenham: what does the future hold for Mauricio Pochettino? Sky Sports experts have their say
Sky's Paul Merson, Charlie Nicholas, Matt Le Tissier and Phil Thompson weight on whether the Argentine should join United or stay at Spurs.
Paul Merson — United
"United have more chance of winning the league in the next five years than Tottenham. United is the biggest club in the world. It's like the England manager's job being offered to an Englishman. It comes along once in a blue moon and it may never happen again. I probably could understand if he didn't because Manchester United are a million miles away from challenging at the moment."
Charlie Nicholas — United
"Man Utd are not in a dramatic rush to write Solskjaer off just yet as he has got the fans on board. There is no way of telling until the end of the summer. He is an honest, appealing guy, almost like a young Wenger. Is it a risk to him or does he believe in his ability? Poch does not work in time-scales, it is all about the now. The stage he is at in his career, this will not frighten him."
Matt Le Tissier — Tottenham
"In terms of job security, he is better off staying at Spurs. He will get away with having a poor spell and getting the sack at Tottenham whereas at Man Utd he would not. His job is far easier at Spurs. I am sure he would have a bigger transfer budget but with that comes a lot more pressure as well as the quicker people expect you to be successful."
Phil Thompson — United
"I would probably be doing exactly what he is doing at the moment. A club like Manchester United doesn't come round too often in a manager's career and I really think it will be difficult to turn down that club. Pochettino has handled it very well at the moment. He would be leaving a better team than what he is going to."
