- Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to become next Man United manager
- The Argentine is being lined up as a replacement for under-fire Solskjaer
- Cole claims change of manager does not always result in fortunes for clubs
Manchester United icon Andy Cole believes hiring Mauricio Pochettino as a replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not put an end to their woes.
The Red Devils came from a goal down to beat Everton 3-1 at the Goodison Park in a crucial game that could have shown the direction of the Norwegian's future at Old Trafford.
Bernard grabbed the opener for the hosts but a brace from Bruno Fernandes and one from Edinson Cavani helped the visitors turn the game around.
The result momentarily eased pressure on Solskjaer who has come under immense criticism from fans following a previous run of poor results.
Before the Everton win, United had registered back-to-back defeats against Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.
The defeats saw reports emerge that club chiefs are in contact with Pochettino over the Old Trafford job having been out of work for over a year.
But Cole is against the opinion of replacing Solskjaer with the ex-Tottenham boss, suggesting change of managers will not bore fruits in the long run.
“He [Pochettino] seems a very, very talented manager, just like the majority of managers at the highest level. But changing managers don’t guarantee anything, we have to be honest here, it doesn’t guarantee anything," the ex-United star was quoted saying.
“There is a lot of clamour at the moment from people who want to see Ole lose his job, but whoever is in the job, it doesn’t guarantee Manchester United success. Football is not as easy as that," he added.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Watford star Troy Deeney has given Man United and Arsenal no chance of finishing among the top four teams in the Premier.
Deeney contends the two sides' run of inconsistent results will have a huge toll on their pursuit to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Both clubs sit on the bottom half of the standings ahead of a two-week international break.
However, the Watford striker admitted the league is sure to produce some stunning results going forward even as he tipped Spurs, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool to complete the top four places.
