Mauricio Pochettino Open To Replace Jose Mourinho At Manchester United


Mauricio Pochettino distanced himself from speculation he could swap Tottenham for Manchester United following Jose Mourinho's Old Trafford exit.

Pochettino has insisted he is focused on managing Spurs for the time being.

The 46-year-old told a news conference he was saddened by Mourinho's departure, and he dismissed what he described as "rumours" over his own future.

The former Southampton manager has taken Spurs from European race also-rans to genuine Premier League title challengers during his four-and-a-half years at the club.

"First of all I want to send my best wishes to him. I don't know if he's thinking to change for another club, but I am looking at him with a very big commitment to Tottenham".

Zidane has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the past few months. And Emery, who is in his first season at the Emirates after taking over from Arsene Wenger in May, admitted that the challenge of wresting back North London supremacy is a hard one.

This is definitely not an issue Pochettino would have at Manchester United if he were to make a move there; the Red Devils spent £74m on new recruits over the summer and have the budget to back any new manager they bring in through the door.

Instead, Pochettino offered support to Mourinho, a man he describes as a "good friend".

Jan Vertonghen put in a disappointing display as the senior centre back and that rubbed off on Foyth, who was nervous throughout and flunked his first major test in a Spurs shirt.

"It's not in my hands how to manage all of these rumours", he said. If we consider that he can cover 90 minutes, maybe he can play.

Moussa Dembele will also be out of action until the new year with an ankle injury and Victor Wanyama has already been ruled out with a knee problem meaning youngster Oliver Skipp could keep his place in the starting XI against the Gunners.
