Jaap Stam backs Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino for Manchester United

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and the Argentine manager is the club's number one target when they appoint a permanent manager.

In a surprise decision, Arsenal manager Unai Emery has dropped Mesut Ozil from the Gunners squad to face Tottenham this evening in their Carabao Cup quarter final at the Emirates this evening.

Arsenal nearly had a deserved equaliser before half-time, but Aaron Ramsey's first-time volley from an Alex Iwobi cross was somehow palmed off the post by Spurs backup keeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

"Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect", United said in a statement.

Pochettino refused to comment on the speculation linking him with the United job at his press conference today but the rumours are only going to intensify over the coming months. It is not my business what happens at another football club. "I feel so sorry because I know him very well, I have a very good relationship with him".

Extending Vertonghen's contract was a good first step in preparing for the possible eventuality of losing Alderweireld, who is one of the very best in the division in his position.

The ex-Argentina global also expressed his sympathy for Mourinho, sending his best wish to his "very good friend". It's sad news what happened to him. I can not answer this type of question.

However, despite their progress in league finishes, Tottenham are yet to win a trophy under Pochettino, with many feeling there is a disparity in investment on the pitch when compared with other members of the "big six".

The 46-year-old is understood to have been frustrated by the lack of backing he has received in the transfer market - with Tottenham unable to make a single close-season signing this year. "But people say different things", Pochettino said.

"That is not my business and then I will not waste time or energy because my focus and energy is in Tottenham, is in tomorrow and to prepare the best way (for) the games, and, of course, to respect the club that employs you".

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has issued out warning to former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane over taking the Red Devils job. When that time comes, Spurs may well have a fight on their hands to keep Pochettino.
