It seems Paul Scholes is already looking ahead to Ralf Rangnick’s departure. The Manchester United legend has named two managers that would take the club to the level it desires.
According to Scholes, the Red Devils should bring in either Antonio Conte or Mauricio Pochettino to take charge in the 2022/23 season.
Scholes said Conte is simply on the same high level as the likes of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
“Conte and Pochettino, they’re the ones we want. Conte, we know he’s up there with [Pep] Guardiola, [Thomas] Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp,” Scholes said on the Webby & O’Neill YouTube channel.
“You know what, I still think [Man Utd] could still get him from Tottenham. Tottenham fans probably won’t like me for saying that. But you can see Conte is already getting a little bit frustrated with his squad of players.
“I think he could do something special here, Conte. He’s got the pedigree to do it. Will we be able to get him? I don’t know.
The former English star said Pochettino proved his quality at Southampton and at Tottenham Hotspur.
“Pochettino – I think he’s a brilliant manager. I love what he’s done at Tottenham and at Southampton. PSG? We don’t know yet. Give him another year or this season to see if he can prove to be an elite manager.
“But because he hasn’t won anything of significance, and I think he won the French league and cup last year, he still has something to prove for me. I think he’s more than capable of doing it,” Scholes concluded.
Meanwhile, United will take on Aston Villa away at Villa Park this weekend.
