Tottenham Hotspur may face a battle to keep their manager, if you choose to believe that newspapers that is (Guardian).

The rumours surrounding the Argentine boss all started as soon as the sacking of Jose Mourinho was announced earlier this week.

However, the immediate future of Pochettino was never really in doubt, as he was never going to leave Spurs mid-way through the season, before they have even moved into their new stadium.

United have filled their managerial position, but only for the time being, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being named as interim boss.

The question still remains, will Man United move for Pochettino in the summer, and if they do, will Spurs be able to keep him?

There have been no indications of any desire to leave from the man himself, or any plan for Tottenham to let him do so.

The latest words of reassurance have come from an unlikely source.

Ex-Arsenal man Martin Keown said (Mail): “Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t look to me like he is thinking about going anywhere else. He is part of a project at Tottenham.

“He has confidence because he knows two of the world’s best clubs are potentially pursuing him in Manchester United and Real Madrid. It would take something pretty special to take him away from Tottenham.

“I think he might use the opportunity to get extra money out of Daniel Levy so he can compete. Look at how much he has spent in recent windows compared to the clubs he is competing with.

“Pochettino, to me, is Arsene Wenger 2.0. Wenger was the pioneer, he had a hand in everything. We’re seeing that with Pochettino.”
