Solskjaer praises Pochettino ahead of Spurs v Manchester United clash

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised the job Mauricio Pochettino has done at Spurs ahead of the two sides crunch clash this weekend.

Former Red Devils striker Solskjaer recently took over as United manager until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was sacked by the Old Trafford club.

However, Pochettino remains the bookies favourite to become the next full time Manchester United manager at the end of the current campaign and Solskjaer admitted that being linked with the job shows how good a coach the Argentinian is.

“It’s not my job to rate different managers but he has done a very good job,” Solskjaer said in the pre-match press conference.

“The speculation is there for a reason.”

Solskjaer has made a superb start to his Old Trafford reign, winning all five of his games in all competitions, albeit against teams that on paper United would be expected to beat.

United currently sit in sixth in the Premier League table, 10 points behind third-placed Spurs and Solskjaer concedes that his side need a good result at Wembley on Sunday if they are to finish in the top four this season.

“They are a top, top side and if we want to get close to them or go past them we will need a good result,” the Norwegian added.
