EPL: Zidane warned over taking Man United job after Mourinho’s sack

Many feel Spurs would deliver trophies if Pochettino was backed better in the transfer market. We're focused and we're going to be focused on our job. Five players? Okay - we're going to invest £500m more'.

"I always respect the opinion of everyone, whether people praise me, whether people do not agree with me, whether people say different things".

"Now they need someone who meets the three key principles of that football club; the promotion of youth, entertaining football and to win football matches". It's not my business what happened at another club.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is still yet to win any silverware with his current employers, had hinted he would name a strong starting line-up against a team Tottenham were beaten by in the Premier League earlier this month.

Tottenham know that they face a fight to keep Pochettino in the summer but they will do everything in their power to do so.

Mourinho was sacked in a face-to-face meeting with Ed Woodward, United's executive vice-chairman, at the club's training centre yesterday after a miserable first half to the season. "It is sad news what happened today". A outcome of going against your manager's signings - it never ends well.

With Alex Ferguson still having sway at the club, he conveyed United's interest to the Spurs coach, before Jose Mourinho ended up being appointed.

"Jose Mourinho is a wonderful manager and I've never bought into the idea that he is a spent force and he has run his course", he added.

"That job is so tough because nobody in football can guarantee you are going to be here tomorrow".

"It was a very hard summer". Yes he has been supported in the transfer market to a level, but it is a hard club at a time when others are doing things better.

That would be a record fee for a manager and would shatter the €14.5m Chelsea paid to extract Andre Villas-Boas out of his contract at Porto in 2011, but the cash United would need to pay to acquire Pochettino would not stop there.

The captain picked up the ball in acres of space and with his first few touches picked out Alli with a delightful through ball and the England midfielder lifted it over Petr Cech to make it 2-0 and silence the home fans.

"The ambition from the manager saying we could finish fourth". "When you look at the values of United, you look at his use of young players".

"I think he's coaching a very big team with very big players and now they are in the Champions League they are also in a better position in the Premier League than Manchester United".
