Warnock: Solskjaer’s appointment was a mistake
Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as interim head coach of Manchester United was a mistake, and the Red Devils will have to go straight to Mauricio Pochettino’s candidacy.
According to rumors, Pochettino remains the number one long-term goal for United’s executive director Ed Woodward. However, inviting the Argentinean specialist from Tottenham can cost the Devils tens of millions of pounds.
However, Warnock is perplexed about United’s slowness and believes that Woodward decided to postpone a permanent manager appointment until the end of the season in vain.
The defender believes that Pochettino’s invitation would be United’s statement to the world that they’re back in the game. Big money would only add importance to this transfer.
This situation can often be observed with players. They declare loyalty to the club and don’t want to leave. But then they get a phone call and lose their head.
Temporary measures aren’t permissible for the club like Manchester United. The Devils are the largest club in the world and must persistently declare their ambitions.
