Former United star, Wayne Rooney has advised Manchester United to go for Mauricio Pochettino as a replacement for sacked Mourinho.

Despite Ole gunnar’s seven wins in a row Rooney says he prefers Pochettino for United top Job.

Working as an analyst for ESPN FC,Wayne Rooney said: ‘I think first of all you have to give Ole an opportunity, if he continues the way he is going then I’m sure that will be a discussion for (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward and the Glazers whether he keeps the job. But if I had the opportunity to appoint somebody then I would go all out for Pochettino.

United – for the last 20 or 30 years, since Sir Alex Ferguson anyway – have based themselves on young players, bringing players through.

‘Pochettino gets the best out of his players, whether they’re young or older players, but he also gives the young players a chance.

‘You see some of the young players he has brought through at Tottenham, and Southampton, who have gone on to play for the national team.

‘I think he ticks every box in terms of his quality as a coach but also his willingness to give young players a chance.’
