Ole Gunnar Solskjaer laughed off the rumours ‘Pochettino to United’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has laughed off suggestions Mauricio Pochettino’s availability has put extra pressure on his job by declaring: “It doesn’t bother me.”

The Argentine, sacked by Tottenham on Tuesday, was heavily linked with the role at Old Trafford before Solskjaer was handed the job permanently in March.

Pochettino, who has already been linked with Bayern Munich, is back on the market but Solskjaer insists it does not affect his position.

“It doesn’t bother me at all,” Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday.

“I’ve got the best job in the world and if you’re in or out of a job you want this job, so it doesn’t really matter whatever happens around it.

I’ve got to focus on my job at Manchester United and do it as well as we can. I speak with Ed [Woodward] and the owners all the time about how we move the club forward and that doesn’t change if others change managers.

Solskjaer will go head-to-head with Pochettino’s replacement and former United boss, Jose Mourinho, when Spurs travel to Old Trafford on Dec. 4.
