Mauricio Pochettino responds to Man Utd links

Pochettino Sympathizes With Sacked Mourinho Dismisses United Job Rumours

No-one knows. The most important thing is to enjoy the journey.

"People will say he hasn't won anything, but United have tried managers that won European Cups, they have tried managers that won multiple leagues, tried managers who have had that solid grounding in the Premier League".

The Red Devils opted to part company with Mourinho after Manchester United suffered a resounding 3-1 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool FC at Anfield last weekend.

Pochettino has already revealed that he will - if possible - stick to his policy of using the League Cup as an opportunity to allow other Spurs squad members playing time. "I'm focused on training and delivering my best result in this club (Tottenham)".

Neville went on to suggest Mourinho remains one of the game's great modern managers, despite being sacked by Chelsea and United in a little over three years. "If you're Daniel Levy (Tottenham chairman), you'll be holding on for dear life but he is the individual who fits the profile of what Manchester United need in terms of what he's done in the Premier League at both clubs". He lost the ball as the Saints went on to score a victor and Emery has once again been willing to show his assertiveness by omitting Ozil from the squad in one of most significant games of the season so far. "No one knows", he said.

Dele Alli was at the centre of an unsavoury scene in the latest north London derby when the Tottenham midfielder was struck by a bottle thrown by an Arsenal supporter.

"Like always in football, no-one can guarantee nothing and when you are a manager, look what happened", he said. I accept everything. I accept the rumours are positive and negative. "He's done an incredible job and I think he's the outstanding candidate".

"That job is so tough because nobody in football can guarantee you are going to be here tomorrow".

Kane is believed to be suffering with a cold, however, and Mauricio Pochettino may not risk him ahead of a busy festive period.

However, the main talking point wasn't either of the Spurs goals, but an incident that occurred in the 73rd minute of the match when an Arsenal fan stupidly lobbed a plastic bottle at goalscorer Alli, which hit the player bang on the head.

"The Argentinian is understood to regard the opportunity of moving to Old Trafford as too good to turn down, although it would cost United £34 million in compensation to prise him from Tottenham, which would take the club's total bill for sacking José Mourinho earlier today past £50 million".
