Tottenham are looking to win their first silverware under manager Pochettino and their first since 2008 when they lifted the League Cup by beating Chelsea in the final. No-one knows. The most important thing is to enjoy the journey.
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.
Pochettino does not have an agent and would conduct any negotiations with Tottenham chairman Levy, but it is far from certain that he will walk away from Spurs after stating his desire to lead the club into their new stadium, that is due to open in 2019. I only want to send my best wishes to Jose.
The sacking of Jose Mourinho has been a story that has dominated all of the headlines in every aspect of the media today, with attentions naturally turning to who will be his successor.
"Whoever came into that football club would find things hard because Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are doing things better".
The 46-year-old signed a new five-year deal with the London club in May amid interest from Real Madrid and he has spoken at length this season about wanting to see the project at the club through, starting with moving them into the new stadium. "I think all the people understand we are focused".
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. "That's not my business, it's so hard to guess, and then I'm not going to waste time or energy because my focus and my energy is in this club, is on tomorrow and to prepare the best way the games, and of course to respect the club that employs you". The players doesn't care too much about what happened about the rumours. "I'm so happy here", he said.
"We need to do a big match and I think it will more hard than the first", Emery added. "I am not creating rumours, I am here". "If you are going to be the most successful manager in global football with Pep Guardiola, you are going to have a dip".
"And if nothing happens in the afternoon, because to protect him he didn't train outside".
Having just returned from a back injury, Ozil played 25 minutes against Southampton last weekend but failed to impress.
