Mauricio Pochettino and Neil Ashton, Man United's new PR consultant, spotted at Leeds game

Crvena Zvezda v Tottenham Hotspur: Group B - UEFA Champions League

Mauricio Pochettino is still without a job since leaving Tottenham at the back end of last year.

But the Argentine is keen to get back into management and ideally with a Premier League club.

"To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League," he told Sky Sports on Tuesday. "It's going to be difficult, I know, and for now it's a moment to wait and we'll see what happens.

"It's a moment of recovery, to think about yourself a little bit, and to be ready because in football always something can happen and you need to be ready.

"I'm ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic."

Manchester United is one club he's been heavily linked with.

United are flailing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. After failing to qualify for the Champions League last season, United are currently in 8th and look set to miss out on Europe's premier cup competition once again.

Due to the club's struggles, many want Solskjaer to be replaced by Pochettino.

And those that want Pochettino to be named United manager were given hope on Tuesday evening.

That's because Pochettino was spotted with Neil Ashton, Man United's new PR consultant, at Leeds against Brentford.

Now, this could be some giant coincidence. The two weren't even speaking and did not sit next to each other.

Pochettino is also a good friend of Marcelo Bielsa, the manager of Leeds, so he could have just been there to support him.

In some incredible twist, maybe Pochettino is in line to replace Bielsa?

Okay, that's very unlikely, but these factors haven't stopped United fans getting excited about the sighting.

Could it really happen?
