Dwight Yorke, a former Manchester United striker, has called for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ‘valued’ job as head coach of the 20-time English champions.
Pochettino was called “a fantastic boss” by Yorke, but the 49-year-old, who played a crucial role in United’s famous triple-winning season, is keen to pay more attention to his “mate” Solskjaer.
“Pochettino is a tremendous manager, no doubt,” Yorke told talkSPORT.
“I will not speculate because Ole is at work and we don’t want to see Ole sacked. I love Ole, he’s a friend of mine, I want to see him come through this, and I’m not going to talk about other executives because he’s in that role, and I think that’s what we should respect at the moment.”
“It wasn’t the season we expected, but people seem to forget that he had a fantastic season last season in many ways, getting to three semi-finals, winning big games when it counted.”
