Rooney tips Pochettino to take over as Man Utd manager

Pochettino has been strongly linked with the permanent job at Old Trafford since the sacking of Those Mounting last december.

According to Rooney, the Argentine can still take charge of the team.

“It’d be nice to see Ole Gunnar continue with this form and get a shot at the job on a permanent basis,” Rooney told CNN.

“But if not, if the club go to choose from somewhere else, then I think Pochettino would be the right guy,” added United’s all-time leading goalscorer.
