Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be among the main candidates to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.

The Norwegian has already parted ways with the Red Devils, while Michael Carrick has taken the role of the interim coach at Old Trafford.

As the club are currently in search of a new manager, Pochettino has been heavily linked with the move to the Premier League side, with Sir Alex Ferguson being his admirer of him.

The Argentine’s appointment would mean he would work with the club star Cristiano Ronaldo, about whom he had previously shared his thoughts back in 2017.

Pochettino said: “He has been awarded ‘The Best’ and the truth is that he deserves it.

“In addition to his qualities as a professional, he is an example. He never tires of repeating that the secret is to work hard, to strive, to take care of himself.

“Every player should apply it.”

At that time Pochettino was in charge of the North London side Tottenham.

“I do not know Cristiano in depth, but he gives me the same feeling as Harry,” he continued.

“They are very similar in terms of professionalism.

“They understand that we must strive to achieve success. He [Kane] has a similar mentality.”
