Jamie Redknapp believes Mauricio Pochettino will leave Tottenham Hotspur to become Manchester United’s next manager.
Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for Pochettino following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal earlier this week, and former Spurs midfielder Redknapp believes the Old Trafford hierarchy will succeed in getting their rumoured number one target.
“I think Manchester United will get him (Pochettino). I think they will go for it and I think they will get him,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“Of course [Spurs fans should be worried] because he’s the special one, he’s a great manager that everyone would want at their club.
“Tottenham have got to do everything in their power to keep him, it’s as simple as that. He’s a very talented manager, the players adore him and play for him and you can see why Manchester United would want him.”
United’s first post-Mourinho fixture is a trip to Cardiff City on Saturday, with United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer taking charge in his first game as caretaker manager against his former club.
