Sir Alex Ferguson believes Manchester United should have appointed Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Since his appointment Solskjaer won his first eight matches with United and guided the Red Devils to remarkable comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. But then United lost eight of their remaining 12 games in the Champions League.

And according to the Mail on Sunday, United should have made an attempt to secure Mauricio Pochettino, who guided the Spurs to the Champions League final this season.

A source close to Ferguson told the Mail on Sunday: “Sir Alex feels conflicted. He can see the irony that he still spends time thinking about United when he’s retired. But he loves the club and does feel a bit hurt that his opinion is never sought.”
