Mauricio Pochettino and Erik Ten Hag are being linked with the managerial role at Manchester United, once Ralf Rangnick’s interim spell ends. Both of them have been long-standing candidates for the job. 

But, while Erik Ten Hag has remained at Ajax (rather contently) while Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly frustrated in France with Paris Saint-Germain. In this article, we’ll take a look at the records of the two managers and try to decide which of them is the better fit for the role at Manchester United.

Ten Hag vs Pochettino: Who would be the better Manchester United manager? 


Here is the career record of the two managers and the relevant stats: 

Mauricio Pochettino

Points per game: 1.66 Win rate: 48.1% Loss rate: 29.4%

Goals per game: 1.65 Goals against per game: 1.13

Erik Ten Hag 

Clubs: Go Ahead Eagles, Utrecht, Ajax

Games: 346 Won: 219 Drawn: 62 Lost: 65

Points per game: 2.07 Win rate: 63.2% Loss rate: 18.7%

Goals per game: 2.36 Goals against per game: 1,05

Points to Note  

Mauricio Pochettino has experience in the Premier League, managing Southampton and Tottenham in his time in England. He is also a Champions League finalist with Spurs. The Argentinian is also responsible for turning Tottenham into one of the best teams in the division over the past decade. 

On the other hand, Erik Ten Hag has spent his entire career in the Eredivisie. He was the man in charge during Ajax’s 2018/19 Champions League semi-final run. 

Right now, what Manchester United need is a clear style of playing and a head coach that is a capable man-manager too. An experienced candidate like Pochettino could bring stability to the team, while Erik Ten Hag could implement a brand new philosophy at the club altogether.
