Poch availability doesn’t bother me: Ole

London, Nov 22 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 11/22/2019 12:23:57 PM IST

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he is not bothered by Mauricio Pochettino’s availability following his sacking by Tottenham.

When Solskjaer took caretaker charge of United last December, Pochettino was favourite for the job, before the Norwegian’s impressive run of results earned him the permanent role.

But with Pochettino no longer in a job after being “relieved of his duties” by Spurs on Tuesday, speculation about a potential move to Old Trafford has intensified. “It doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve got the best job in the world,” said Solskjaer ahead of Sunday’s trip to Sheffield United.

“If you’re in a job, or if you’re out of a job and you’re a manager, you want this job. It doesn’t really matter whatever happens around. I’ve got to focus on my job at Manchester United and do it as well as I can. I speak with Ed Woodward and the owners all the time about how we’re going to move the club forward. That doesn’t change if some other clubs change their managers.”

Spurs appointed former United manager Jose Mourinho on Wednesday.

United midfielder Nemanja Matic, who has been signed by Mourinho twice in his career, liked and commented on an Instagram post suggesting he was waiting for the Portuguese to bring him to Spurs in January. 

“When it’s like this, you like Jose coming back,” added Solskjaer. “It’s going to be a spectacle and a circus and Nemanja has a sense of humour.”

Paul Pogba, the France international midfielder, will not be back for Sunday’s trip to Bramall Lane, says Solskjaer.

Pogba has been out injured since September with an ankle problem and Solskjaer had previously said this weekend’s Premier League game would be the earliest he could return.

“He had another test and a scan at the start of the international break and he’s not healed yet,” said Solskjaer.
