England and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has tipped Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to be the “right guy” for Manchester United if they do not appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.




Pochettino has been strongly linked with the permanent job at Old Trafford, so is Rooney’s ex-United team-mate Solskjaer who became caretaker boss in December and is unbeaten after 10 games in charge.
