Conte reacts to Pochettino’s possible move to Man United

Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, has responded to reports linking PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino to Manchester United by saying, “I wish him the best.”

Pochettino, who had previously stated that he is pleased at PSG, was characterized as a good buddy by the Tottenham manager.

Manchester United are rumored to be interested in hiring the Argentine as their new permanent manager.

Man United fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday following a humiliating 4-1 loss to Watford, which dropped them to eighth place in the league table, 12 points behind league leaders Chelsea.

Conte was rumored to be interested in the Old Trafford position before joining Spurs after receiving no contact from United.

Now Pochettino is United’s clear preference to succeed Solskjaer and the Tottenham boss is believed to be keen on taking the Old Trafford hotseat.

During his press conference ahead of Tottenham’s Europa Conference Cup game against Mura, Conte was asked about the prospect of facing Pochettino at United, he replied: “Honestly in this moment I’m too busy thinking about my work and the situation here at Tottenham to speak about whether eventually Pochettino comes again to England.

“I think I’m not prepared for this answer, I’m sorry! I am focused on the game against Mura.

“Mauricio is a friend, a good friend, and he is a good person. I wish for him the best.”
