Manchester United fans call for Mauricio Pochettino after woeful performance vs. Aston Villa

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United supporters have called for Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the club’s 2-2 draw at home to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The home side were once again directionless and devoid of tempo, taking the lead through Victor Lindelof only to be pegged back less than 60 seconds later in what was an emphatic illustration of the culture of mediocrity at this club.

Such a result leaves United in ninth place, level on points with Burnley and with just four wins from 14 Premier League games.

And with Mauricio Pochettino now without a job, it was impossible for United fans to ignore the benefits of installing the Argentine in place of Solskjaer.

You can see the merit in appointing Pochettino, for sure. The guy transformed a club that was at an even lower level than United and took them to a Champions League final – a level that United cannot even dream of.

But if things continue to go wrong, in the same way, even after a year, two years – well, what then?

The culture at this club is one of mediocrity. Pochettino would not want to go to a club like that.

To make things worse, he will probably join Manchester City over the summer.
