Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he has good memories of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The two managers are all set to collide this weekend, as Manchester United visit Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley for an exciting Premier League clash on Sunday.

Pochettino has been strongly linked with the Old Trafford hot-seat, with multiple sources dubbing the Argentinian as the Mancunian outfit’s number one managerial target.

However, Solskjaer’s impressive showing during his first five games in charge of the Red Devils has led many to believe that he is just as good a candidate to take over the job full-time.

The two tacticians could very well end up being the final two contenders for the post come summer, and Sunday’s fixture might just have a huge effect on the ultimate decision by the Manchester United higher-ups.

Despite that fact, however, Pochettino had nothing but good things to say about his Norwegian counterpart during his pre-match press conference. The Spurs boss admitted that he has fond memories of Ole and his iconic last-minute winner in the 1999 Champions League final.


What Solskjaer Said About United’s Interest In Mauricio Pochettino

“I have good memories of him,” said Pochettino of Solskjaer. “I remember when he scored after 90 minutes at the Camp Nou (against Bayern Munich), I was with Tony Jimenez in 1999.

“I remember him when he scored the second goal in the injury time and how I shouted the goal of Manchester United, that was unbelievable. We were neutral people watching a fantastic game. I have good memories of him.

“Now on Sunday we are going to meet at Wembley when 20 years ago I was shouting a goal that he scored for Manchester United, and now we are going to play them at Wembley.”
