Paul Scholes wants Mauricio Pochettino to be appointed as the permanent boss of Manchester United, this is according to report.
The Red Devils are on the look-out for a manager that would bring back the glory days at the club and they have been linked with various managers, with former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane said to be favourite to land the job.
Jose Mourinho was shockingly relieved of his position at the fortress of Old Trafford last week after the club slumped to their most catastrophic start in the League for 28-years.
Former star Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will manage United until the end of the season. Although, he has started his spell brightly, United are in search for a manager with more pedigree and experience.
While, there is no telling who Man United will appoint as their permanent boss, Scholes has backed Pochettino to take over the job.
He spoke on BBC Radio 5 live, and said: “Pochettino’s the man. If he wants the job then I think it’s his.
“He carries himself brilliantly with the media and with his team. He promotes young players and most importantly he wins a lot of football matches.
“I know people say he’s got a great team at Tottenham. He has. But can he ever really win the league with Tottenham?
“I’m not sure he can. With United, he’ll have the spending power, the money and he’ll be capable of winning the league. I think if he wants the job then he’s definitely the man.”
