According to The Athletic, former Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is happy to play the waiting game as he keeps an eye on Frank Lampard’s Chelsea job.

The Atheltic’s David Ornstein said on his Tifo podcast: “I don’t think Pochettino is on the verge of taking a new job at the moment.

“As for United, publicly and more interestingly privately from what I hear, they completely support Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and are giving him their full backing and have no plans as things stand to make a change.

“But we know how quickly things do change in football. There have been reports that United have made contact with Pochettino.

“I’m not questioning those reports but personally I don’t have that information.

“What we do know is Pochettino’s available, he’s recently conducted a very high-profile television interview which I’m assured was more of a long-standing commitment than a come-and-get-me plea or putting himself in the shop window to say, ‘I’m ready and raring to go.’

“Suitors, the likes of Manchester United, will already know that and know what he brings as a man manager, a person, a coach, etctera. The timing [of his interview] was interesting.

“What I do hear is that Pochettino is waiting and watching very closely in particular United, Manchester City, perhaps Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and others to see what’s going to happen there.”
