As a matter of fact, Sports mail reported that the former Tottenham tactician wanted to take the job at United mid-season after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired.
Neville is keen that his old club is looking for long-term employment and has identified Pochettino as the ideal candidate to take him forward.
‘I do not think so [Antonio] Conte matched United, “Neville said on Sky Sports.
Ralf Rangnick took over the management until the end of the season and will take on an advisory role
“I think United will get the right coach in the longer term at the end of the season.
“I want Pochettino to be the next coach because he has experience in the league. I think he would play the right kind of football.”
“It feels like the moment for him to ascend. He manages big stars, characters and personalities.
“I’ve always liked him and the way he works. I think he fits the club, he also works with young players.
Neville says Pochettino will make sure United play the “real football” and improve their players
“He gets the best out of the players. He’s a good trainer. But I also think that he really works on people.
“But he has a job at Paris Saint-Germain and if he’s doing well there they obviously won’t let him go.”
Pochettino has had a difficult season on and off the pitch at Parc des Princes, with his reign being tarnished by locker room egos and poor performance.
