Pep Guardiola claims Pochettino is a 'top manager' even with no major titles

Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the Manchester United job.

Both the top managers will be facing each other at the Etihad for an intense Champions League encounter on Wednesday evening.

Pochettino has been linked with the Old Trafford job after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last weekend.

His compatriot Pep Guardiola explains that you don’t need to win titles to become a top manager.

Guardiola said: “You can be a top manager and not win titles. The managers that have the chance to win the titles are at top, top clubs with good investments and exceptional players. Otherwise, for a manager, it is impossible to win.

“That doesn’t mean the managers in the Championship or not in the top six of the Premier League cannot be excellent managers in tactics, communication, leading. It’s not necessary to win titles.”

Pochettino won the Coupe de France with the French giants despite missing out on the Ligue 1 trophy last season

Guardiola previously said: “It’s completely different – different countries, players, shapes. Even with the same manager and same team from one year it can be different – new players, many things can happen.

“The situation is different, completely different to Tottenham when he was there.”
