The game is being billed as the audition, with the two managers the two favourites to be the next permanent Manchester United boss.

Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was sacked in December.

And his five wins from his first five games has put him in the frame for the full time role.

However Tottenham’s Pochettino remains the big favourite - and the dream appointment.


And the two men came face to face before proceedings today.

Pochettino opened his arms to offer his counterpart a warm hug - and it ended in an awkward double pat on the chest.

Both men seemed in good spirits despite the rivalry for the match - and the future job.

More names have begun to emerge in relation to the job as fears grow over the difficulties of luring Pochettino from Tottenham

Daniel Levy is famed for his tour negotiating skills and Gareth Southgate, along with Diego Simeone have both been linked with the job today.

Zinedine Zidane remains another option but Solskjaer is keen to get the job himself.

Pochettino insists he doesn’t mind the talk about his future.

“I know very well that my name, like many other names, are in the media,” he told Sky Sports.

“But of course that is not the thing that worries me or is in my mind.

“That is a business for Manchester United.

“I am so happy here at Tottenham.”

He added: “In the future, you cannot talk too much in football.

“I do not know what will happen tomorrow.

“I am open to adapting myself, because it is so important to be happy and to feel that you are important inside in a project that you need to give your best.

“Of course, at the moment, I am so happy here at Tottenham.

“But what happens tomorrow we will see.”
