Mauricio Pochettino spotted with Ed Woodward’s new advisor Neil Ashton at Brentford vs Leeds amid Man Utd links – The Sun

MAURICIO POCHETTINO was spotted alongside Manchester United's new PR advisor Neil Ashton at Brentford's draw with Leeds last night.

The Argentine, who has been out-of-work since he was axed by Tottenham in November, has been heavily linked with replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

And the pictures of the pair together, as well as footage during the live Sky Sports coverage, sparked wild speculation on social media.

SunSport understands Ashton was at the game as a guest of Brentford and was not there in a professional capacity.

Ashton was appointed by United's executive vice chairman Ed Woodward as a consultant last month.

Poch, who was accompanied by assistant Jesus Perez at Griffin Park, is close friends with Leeds boss and countryman Marcelo Bielsa.

He was also spotted chatting to former Newcastle and Brighton boss Chris Hughton as the pair made their way to their seats for the start of the game.

The former Spurs and Southampton chief had earlier said yesterday he would 'love' another job in the Premier League.
