Mauricio Pochettino is still the Tottenham Hotspur manager. The Argentine has done a phenomenal job at both White Hart Lane and Wembley since he made the switch from Southampton, and whether Manchester United have a manager or not, the Lilywhites’ are confident that he’ll be sticking around, despite what the media say.

After Jose Mourinho’s shock sacking yesterday, every paper seemed to turn on Pochettino as the next Old Trafford boss, and The Daily Mail have even run a story claiming that Eddie Howe will be the next Tottenham manager, despite the fact that the club haven’t sacked a manager since Tim Sherwood was dismissed all the way back in May 2014.
It’s hard to see why Pochettino would want to leave North London too. Tottenham are arguably the best team in London at the moment, and their Premier League position proves that, whilst Manchester United have been a shambles for years now. The Argentine has nurtured some sublime talent at the club and is in his 5th year in a project that he has claimed multiple times is ‘years ahead of schedule’ so for the Lilywhites to see a paper like the Mail drop the bomb that Howe will replace Poch is ludicrous.

Eddie Howe can go to United. Problem solved.

Why would Poch leave what he has created at Spurs to deal with the mess at United?

The Lilywhites have full faith in Pochettino staying and will be desperate for United to announce their full-time manager ahead of next season as soon as possible to put an end to these ridiculous stories.
