Man Utd news LIVE: Haaland SNUBS United deal, Pogba a ‘priority’ for PSG, Benfica want £113m for Nunez

Ten Hag and Poch too good for Utds Disneyland

COMMENT: Imagine the scene in maybe 12 months, writes DAVE KIDD.

Maurice Pochettino and Erik ten Hag sip cappuccinos together at a sidewalk café, as these elite trainers love to do, and reminisce about the time they were shortlisted for the Manchester United Work.

“We dodged a bullet there, heh Erik?” chuckled Poch after United’s interim boss Steve Bruce was sacked with his team in the bottom half First League.

It’s an unlikely scenario but one United undoubtedly deserve.

We were told from a really good source that United offered the job to the Ajax boss Ten witchrather than Paris St Germain Gaffer Poch because they think the Dutchman would “fit better into their structure”.

You mean Man Utd claim to have an actual structure?

No one who saw them stagger to defeat in Saturday’s underachiever derby against Everton would imagine that – nor anyone who has watched United for most of the past nine years.

But actually Chief Executive Richard Arnold does the important stuff, like bragging about the club’s social media reach.

And United will soon appoint an “assistant director of football” to support “director of football” John Murtough and “technical director” Darren Fletcher.

Then there’s “Head of Corporate Development” Matt Judge, who is busy with recruitment.

Oh yes, and Ralf Rangnick will still be hanging around in the background six days a month as a tactical genius.

Perhaps Ten Hag could report a dotted line in the leadership structure to Rangnick.
