Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, thinks speculations linking Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino to the United job are there for a reason, as his side is in preparations for a Super Sunday clash against Spurs.
The United Manager made the remarks yesterday in a pre-match conference, in the event that a win for them would see their gap against 3rd placed Spurs trimmed to 7 points at temporary Spurs home, Wembley Stadium.
The 45-year-old told Skysports that: “He has done a very good job,” Solskjaer said, ahead of United’s game against Spurs at Wembley on Sunday.
“That speculation is there for a reason because he has done well.”
The coach has done well so far in his caretaker role which expires next summer, winning his first five matches; four in the league and one in the FA Cup against Reading.
Apart from commenting on Poch speculations, he also talked heaped praise on Spurs’ England attacker, Harry Kane.
“He is not bad is he? He is a fantastic goalscorer – one of the best in the world at playing up there. Then again I have got a couple that I am happy to work with.
“But he is also a top, top professional. I am sure whoever plays with him and trains with him can talk more about him but from the outside, [he is] a fantastic finisher.
“He never misses chances really, so let’s make sure he does not get any against us.”
Meanwhile, the Red Devils came back from Dubai where they were having their trainings, and midfielder Paul Pogba has been confirmed fit for the match after sitting out in the previous game against Reading.
The Norwegian’s men are stuck on sixth position with 38 points after 21 matches, and Gunnar’s main target is to finish the season in top four.
