Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has opened the door to manage Manchester United after Erik ten Hag.

The Argentine was keen on taking charge as the Red Devils manager this year, but the board decided to appoint Ten Hag instead.

Under Ten Hag, the club have fared impressively during the first half of the campaign and progress has been seen from last season.

Hence, the Red Devils have no reason to sack Ten Hag anytime soon, but Pochettino believes he will get another opportunity.

He told Radio Marca: “Football is timing. It’s the moments for it to coincide and for the marriage to happen. Sometimes it’s just a matter of timing. I don’t believe that trains pass just once.”

United are currently three points behind Spurs for the fourth spot with a game in hand. They beat Fulham before the World Cup break.

The Red Devils will resume their league duties with a home game against relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest on December 27.
