Arsenal manager Unai Emery has raised questions over Mauricio Pochettino’s rumoured linkup with the Manchester United managerial job.
United parted ways with Jose Mourinho following a disastrous start to the current season. The Red Devils are reeling in the sixth place and are a distant 11 points adrift of the top four.
Pochettino has long been in the radar of United hierarchy but it would be immensely difficult for the Red Devils to appoint as Mourinho’s successor. The Argentine’s ambitious and visionary project is reaping dividends at the North London club and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would demand a hefty compensation if United were to acquire his service.
But Emery insists his friend is in no hurry to change his current job. “I think he’s very happy at Tottenham.
“I think he’s coaching a very big team with a very big player and now they are in the Champions League they are also in a better position in the Premier League than Manchester United.
“I think his performance at Tottenham is very big. I don’t know if he’s thinking to change for another club, but I am looking at him with a very big commitment to Tottenham and he’s creating a good performance a good idea at Tottenham.
“Tottenham improved a lot with him. I think we need also to create our way and our test tomorrow is a very big test.”
