  • Mauricio Pochettino responds to Man Utd links

"We need to do a big match and I think it will more hard than the first", Emery added. It's nice for everyone because it means they are doing a good job.

Manchester United are "desperate" to bring in Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino as Jose Mourinho's replacement at the end of the season, according to iNews journalist Sam Cunningham. "I understand you're interested because there are a lot of rumours but look, I'm happy here, trying to give my best to the club".

"My view is they need someone who meets the three key principles of that football club - the promotion of youth, entertaining football and to win football matches".

"Whoever came into that football club would find things hard because Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are doing things better".

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.

There's absolutely no doubting Mauricio Pochettino has done a fantastic job at Tottenham so far.

"I think he's coaching a very big team with a very big player and now they are in the Champions League they are also in a better position in the Premier League than Manchester United".

Pochettino has always been linked with the Old Trafford job, having overseen Tottenham's transformation to regular Champions League participants since his arrival from Southampton in 2014. I only send my best wishes to Jose...

"I think the players don't care too much about what happens about the rumours".

"I think he's very happy at Tottenham", Emery told a news conference.

"Today that's not how we are, because from day one that I signed here, every day some rumours arrive - players in, players out, signings, players that move to different clubs, coaching staff moving to a different club". David Moyes, Louis Van Gaal and Mourinho have all tried and failed, and although United still have a huge pull due to their rich history, success and global reach, there are so many issues behind-the-scenes and a total restructure is needed in terms of their soccer operations.

Pochettino, preparing for Wednesday's League Cup quarter-final at Arsenal, emphasised he is happy at Tottenham, where he has earned a reputation as one of the brightest young coaches in the world. I accept everything. I accept the rumours are positive and negative.

"I think his performance at Tottenham is very big". If we consider that he can cope with 90 minutes, maybe he can play.
