It's not exactly been a vintage few months for Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The MEN understand that United have been discussing the future of Solskjaer, yet, as of right now, the Norwegian tactician is expected to be in charge for Manchester United's game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Antonio Conte is waiting in the wings should Solskjaer be handed his marching orders by the United hierarchy, though he's not the only name to have been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

ESPN are reporting that even though he has just signed a one-year extension with Paris Saint-Germain, Mauricio Pochettino's name has been bandied around the United boardroom.

Is he the man to bring the good times back to Old Trafford? Absolutely not.

Pochettino underperformed at Tottenham with the squad he had at his disposal. People are always quick to point out some of the stellar work he did in the transfer market - and I'm not going to argue with that - but with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min up top and a defence consisting of players like Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen among other quality names, he really should have won the league in 2015/16.

Instead, Leicester City won the title and Spurs somehow ended up coming third in a two-horse race as Arsenal pipped them to second place. He also won no trophies during this five-year spell at the club.

Again, people say he worked wonders getting to the Champions League final but he made a number of fatal errors which prevented his side from being crowned champions of Europe.

He didn't play an in-form Lucas Moura who scored a hat-trick in the semi-final against Ajax, instead opting for the more high-profile Kane who had been injured.

Pochettino spent five years at Tottenham Hotspur and failed to win any trophies

United needs someone who can manage big personalities and choose players based on form rather than reputation.

If his Spurs stint wasn't enough to convince me Pochettino is not the man for us, one look at his time with current club Paris Saint-Germain is definitely enough to put me off.

He failed to win the league last season, losing out to Lille by one point, and in response the board provided him with an influx of talent that most managers could only dream of.

Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum and Nuno Mendes all arrived at Parc des Princes in the summer, with Pochettino's side now surely ready to dominate Europe.

However, much like Solskjaer at United, he has struggled to get the best out of his star-studded squad.

Yes, he is top of the league but this is Ligue 1 and PSG are comfortably the best team in France - being crowned Ligue 1 champions should be a stroll in the park for them.

Neymar has looked a shadow of his former self under Pochettino, bagging two goals and two assists in 11 games.

Messi has also struggled in the league, with no goals or assists in four games so far.

If we were to appoint him, how would Pochettino be able to get the most out of all of United's talent, especially Cristiano Ronaldo?

Pochettino is not a bad manager, in fact, he's a pretty good one, but there are plenty more managers out there who could do a better job at Old Trafford than him.

Yes, he'd probably build a brilliant squad but we'd never actually win anything. Sound familiar?
