Yet another twist in the Manchester United managerial saga as Sir Alex Ferguson is spotted having dinner with a top Premier League manager, and it’s not Mourinho or Van Gaal.
It’s fair to say that the Manchester United managerial saga is beginning to get as boring as the way United play football under current boss Louis van Gaal. As good as gone in January, Van Gaal continues to lead his side from one mediocre performance to the next, with flashes of brilliance thrown in every now and then to give the faithful hope.
Persistent reports in the media suggested that ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was ready and waiting to take over at the end of the season and while some fans balked at the notion of Mouringo in charge, most were tickled pink.
Recent events saw the Portuguese manager’s appointment thrown into doubt as non-executive chairman Ed Woodward and the United board seemingly requested that he wait another season before taking over, in order to allow Van Gaal see out his contract at the club.
As expected, the Special One has been reluctant to do so, as he has insisted he wishes to return to management next season. Now it seems that while the back and forth has been going on between Van Gaal, United and Mourinho, former manager and all around legend Sir Alex Ferguson has been spotted having dinner with none other than the manager he referred to as ‘the best in the Premier League‘, Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino.
It has been reported on Tuesday(via the Mirror) that Ferguson met with Pochettino and his assistant Jesus Perez, as they share a mutual respect and admiration for each other. It was claimed that the meeting was purely casual.

These images appear to suggest that the pair were not overly keen to be seen together in public and it will certainly have fans from both clubs wondering if there is something in the mix but of the two sides, it will be Tottenham supporters that will feel more nervous about the meeting.
In the managerial saga that just keeps on giving, the next twist in the tale might be that neither Van Gaal or Mourinho will be at the helm at Old Trafford next season and, instead, will it actually be a certain Argentine currently working in London?
