Tottenham 'won't let Mauricio Pochettino join Man United... even for £50m'

Romelu Lukaku Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United 2018-19

Former United and Norway striker Solskjaer has won all five of his matches in charge and Pochettino said the Ferguson effect can not be dismissed ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash. He's got the potential to get up there.

He's got frightening pace.

He won the Golden Boot at last year's World Cup and this season is joint-top scorer alongside Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on 14 goals.

Pochettino has been heavily linked with the managerial job at Old Trafford for many years, and that speculation intensified when Jose Mourinho was relieved of his duties in December.

In other words: Solskjaer has fulfilled the functions of what you'd expect from a manager, encouraging a more open environment and style of football which best suits the players.

Since returning to United, where he played as a striker between 1996 and 2007, Solskjaer has spoken repeatedly of the need to return to the attractive, attacking football that they played for much of Alex Ferguson's reign.

"He played for the club and has been a coach there in his best days with Alex Ferguson".

United have a proud history of producing their own talent, having included at least one youth-team graduate in every first-team matchday squad since October 1937.

"I'm going as a fan and I am really looking forward to seeing something special", Berbatov said. "He did have some problem but he came through the last couple of sessions well".

"[Tahith] Chong, Angel [Gomes] and him, they play together in a certain way so he's a very exciting player to work with".

"The last five games haven't been too bad but there is always things to work on; the relationship between players, the cohesion and the understanding". Solskjaer was handed control of the team until the end of the season, but Pochettino is a heavy favourite to take over from Solskjaer next summer.

"We've had tests", he said.

"No, we've not had that conversation", said Solskjaer."You don't plan five or six months ahead and then suddenly after two weeks change that".

"Today the Premier League is so competitive and for Tottenham to go to, I don't know, Southampton and sign a player like they used to do, like with Gareth Bale, today it's so hard", he said.
