Mauricio Pochettino will outlast Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, according to a former Premier League star.

New Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to outlast Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag.

Pochettino has endured a tough start at Chelsea, like many before him, with the Blues winning just one of their four games so far. The Blues have managed to trim their squad significantly, but they still haven’t managed to deliver consistent performances - and most importantly - results.

There have been signs of improvement from Chelsea, but they are going to have to pick up quickly if they want to compete for a top four spot this season.

Though, they are not the only side to have troubles, with Manchester United also failing to hit the ground running, winning just two of their first four games. United boss Ten Hag is now under fire after, and doubly so after calling out Jadon Sancho and sparking another controversy surrounding his squad.

The Red Devils are once again making headlines for the wrong reasons this season, and they too need to turn things around quickly if they want to be in top four contention this season.

Ten Hag may also have his job on the line if things go particularly badly, and former Liverpool star Jose Enrique believes the Dutchman will be out the door before Pochettino is dismissed by Chelsea.

“I don’t think things are going to end well for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United,” Jose Enrique told Grosvenor Sport. “I loved the way he handled things last season, but with the Jadon Sancho situation this season, I don’t know why he did what he did in putting the whole dressing room against him.

“I have a feeling that Ten Hag won’t be sacked this season, but in the future, he will be sacked before the likes of Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea. After a very good season last season, I expected Manchester United to be in a much better position at the moment. Obviously, there have been other factors like the Jadon Sancho situation which Erik ten Hag spoke publicly about, as well as the Antony situation.”
