As soon as the managerial vacancy opened up at Manchester United it was always going to be inevitable that Mauricio Pochettino would be closely linked with the job. However, a lot of Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter in complete faith that their gaffer will be staying put, despite the lure from Old Trafford.
Ever since he arrived at White Hart Lane back in 2014 Mauricio Pochettino has shown his class all the way through. Not one Tottenham fan would rather have any other manager leading them from White Hart Lane to Wembley to the new stadium, and so far the ex-Southampton and Espanyol manager has done a sublime job, so you can understand the Lilywhites’ anger at the Pochettino links.
Arguably, of all the stars at Tottenham Hotspur at the moment, Mauricio Pochettino is the most valuable. It’s always the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen who are touted with big money moves, but without Poch the Tottenham project falls apart, and the fans know it. It’s no surprise that United want the Tottenham man, and it’s even less of a surprise that the Lilywhites are prepared to fight tooth and nail to keep him.
You can read the Tottenham fans’ verdict on Pochettino’s future here:
people keep saying that, poch keeps staying and winning and loving this club. How many points higher are we than United atm? the club >>>> the checkbook.

Poch needs to come out and say he’s staying to shut up Sky Sports and their fake news

I agree that Poch will end up staying at Tottenham specially if Levy supports him in the next transfer window but it’s almost certain that United will make a very strong approach between now and the summer with a ‘dizzying’ offer.

Poch you know staying at spurs is the right thing to do

The Lilywhites have full faith in Pochettino staying at the club and would be devastated to see him leave for Old Trafford after all that he’s done in North London.
