Pochettino is United’s number one target should Mourinho leave the Red Devils following a string of poor results. United is already 18 points off the pace in the Premier League following four matches without a victory, while Mourinho’s men are 10 points adrift of third-placed Tottenham. The Argentine, who signed a new five-year contract with Spurs in May insists he is committed to the north London club.
“The most important thing is I feel so happy here. I think Tottenham has given me the value. I don’t know the answer [to whether speculation over his future will continue as Spurs struggle to compete for the title] but I feel happy here in Tottenham because I feel the recognition for our job,” said Poch.
“When [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy extended our contract for five years, it’s because he believed in that moment and period that we’re the best people to manage this boat, this club. That is a massive recognition for us,” he added.
