Manchester United are moving forward under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and 'it’s WRONG' to link Mauricio Pochettino with his job, insists Paul Parker

Paul Parker has hit out at the reports linking Mauricio Pochettino with the Manchester United job, insisting the club is ‘moving forward’ under Ole Gunnar Solksjear.

Pochettino has revealed he is ready to make his return to management after his gardening leave at Tottenham ended, and his ‘priority’ is to get another job in the Premier League.

Former Spurs manager Pochettino has been linked with taking over at Newcastle when their new owners take control at St James’ Park

The Argentine has been strongly linked with taking over from Steve Bruce at Newcastle United, with reports the club’s prospective new owners could want to bring in a new boss.

But links with the Man United job have not gone away, and Pochettino’s former Spurs defender Danny Rose recently said in an interview he thinks his old boss will end up Old Trafford eventually.

But Parker insists United have turned a corner under club legend boss Solskjaer and says it’s wrong to suggest he could be replaced.

Tony Cascarino believes Mauricio Pochettino would ’embrace the challenge’ of rebuilding the Newcastle team

“Given than nothing has really been happening in football, people have got to find a story they can build into something,” the ex-United and England defender told the Weekend Sports Breakfast.

“You talk about Pochettino, he’s been mentioned of late. I’ve seen that he’s been speaking on TV, he’s about and people are trying to push him towards jobs.

“You throw him in at Manchester United and it’s an easy one to do, to say that something COULD happen.

“But things at United have shown, with how they finished before this situation started, it would have suggested they would have been there until the last kick of the ball to get into the Champions League.

“They had turned around, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had turned them around as a team, as a club, the whole place was definitely moving forward.

“When you look at the players he’s spent money on, not one of them has let Solskjaer or Manchester United down, they have all stepped forward. Bruno Fernandes in particular has made an impact straight away and everyone is growing into it now and has got the right mentality.

“So United at this moment are going forward, we’ll wait and see what happens when things start again, but if you’re judging now it’s wrong that people are still trying to get that man [Solskjaer] out of that job.”
