EPL: Sinclair names manager to replace Guardiola at Manchester City

Former Manchester City winger, Trevor Sinclair has named former Paris Saint-Germain coach, Mauricio Pochettino, as the manager that should replace Pep Guardiola at the Etihad when the Spaniard leaves in the future.

Sinclair believes Pochettino is a charming man and can deal with big players, having worked with the likes of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at PSG.

Guardiola joined Man City back in 2016 after a successful spell at Bayern Munich.

He has led Man City to four Premier League titles in five years and won numerous domestic cups.

While a European trophy has eluded him at Man City so far, the former Barcelona manager has developed the club into a powerhouse in world football.

Pochettino, meanwhile, was recently sacked by PSG after a year and a half in charge.

The Argentine led the Parisians to the French Ligue 1 title last season but was unsuccessful in the UEFA Champions League.

However, Sinclair believes Pochettino should replace Guardiola in the future at Man City,

“You look at him, and he knows how to deal with egos. He seems to have a fantastic rapport with players. It doesn’t matter how big the players are; we have seen him managing (Lionel) Messi, (Kylian) Mbappe and Neymar. So on that side of things, I think he is safe hands. He is a charming man, and I think he comes across well in the media,” Sinclair told talkSPORT (via GOAL).

He added: “I actually feel that Manchester City might be the club for him. I think he might have a bit of a sabbatical now, because I’m sure he is not struggling for finances. But I think Manchester City could be the one for him. If Guardiola walks away at a certain stage, that might be a hot seat ready to take for Pochettino.”
