Just a few hours after I left Chelsea, he called me and invited me to become Manchester United’s new manager. Later, I received a call from INEOS. I would love to work with him and make him my captain.” Mauricio Pochettino has already identified an ‘exciting’ Manchester United player he is eager to work with, revealing what transpired after he was dismissed by Chelsea’s owners.

Mauricio Pochettino, the seasoned Argentine manager whose name is swirling in the winds of change at Manchester United, has recently turned his attention to a rising star within the club’s ranks, Alejandro Garnacho. Amidst rumors of his potential move to Old Trafford, following Erik ten Hag’s departure from Chelsea, Pochettino has openly praised Garnacho as a player of immense promise.

Before his former club faced Manchester United this season, Pochettino spoke glowingly of Garnacho, highlighting the young player’s exciting potential and talent. “He is an exciting player, young and talented,” remarked Pochettino, reflecting on Garnacho’s journey from Spain to Manchester. “It’s good to see a young player being brave and showing the talent that he is showing.”

At just 19 years old, Garnacho has already made a significant impact, appearing in 49 matches across various competitions this season, including 36 Premier League games under Ten Hag’s guidance. His impressive tally of nine goals underscores his attacking prowess and burgeoning influence on the pitch.

For Pochettino, Garnacho’s dual heritage—Argentinian and Spanish—adds a layer of personal interest, noting their reversed national affiliations. “He is Argentinian and Spanish. He is the opposite of me because I am Argentinian-Spanish; he is Spanish-Argentinian,” mused Pochettino, highlighting the youngster’s potential significance not only for his club but also for his national teams.

Pochettino’s managerial journey has been a storied one, with notable stints at Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-Germain, and most recently, Chelsea. His name has frequently been linked with Manchester United, a club he almost joined earlier, and now, as speculation mounts once more, his admiration for Garnacho hints at a potential future collaboration.

As Manchester United contemplates its managerial options ahead of the 2024/25 season, Pochettino remains a prominent figure in discussions. His affinity for Garnacho’s playing style and development underscores the Argentine’s eye for talent and potential contributions to the team’s future success.

With Garnacho’s star on the rise and Pochettino’s managerial pedigree well-documented, the prospect of them working together at Old Trafford adds an intriguing layer to the ongoing narrative surrounding Manchester United’s next chapter. As fans and pundits alike speculate on what lies ahead, one thing remains clear—Pochettino sees in Garnacho not just a player, but a beacon of promise for both club and country.
