Pochettino, Rodgers in frame for Man City job

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is being linked with Pep Guardiola's job at Manchester City.

The Telegraph says Guardiola's long-term future at the Etihad Stadium has been thrown into serious doubt after City were handed a two-season ban from the Champions League by UEFA.

Both Pochettino and current Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers would be in contention for the job if the Spaniard did decide he wants to move on.

Pochettino is currently without a club since being sacked by Spurs in November after a poor start to the season but has regularly been linked with Manchester United.

But it is claimed that some of City's executives think highly of the Argentine after his impressive few years with the North London club, which saw him reach the final of the Champions League in 2019.
