Sherwood explains why he would play under Pochettino rather than Mourinho

Sherwood explains why he would play under Pochettino rather than Mourinho

The two sides, who are separated in their table only by goal difference, face each other at Old Trafford on Saturday. United are now second in the Premier League, just above Spurs on goal difference.

Injury rules out star turn Harry Kane, but fellow England worldwide Eric Dier may well start - a player who has been targeted by Mourinho's side, with Mauricio Pochettino saying in his new book that the interest "destabilised" the defensive midfielder. His appearance as a late substitute against Swansea on Tuesday was just his second of the season.

The £30m defender signed an extension to his present £130,000 per week deal earlier this year and Old Trafford insiders believe the club could use the January window to try and secure him regular starts somewhere else until the end of the campaign, before looking again at his situation.

Rose was slated during the summer when he suggested that he was worth far more than he was being paid at White Hart Lane, only helping in intensifying rumours that he could be set for an exit from North London.

Then last summer the England midfielder was linked with a move to United...

Mourinho added: "I don't speak about injured players so don't ask me about Harry Kane, because I have to speak about Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Carrick". Not only me. The intention is a book that can help a lot of people understand how our life is.

Clarifying his comments, Herrera said that his statement was misjudged and he only praised the better attitude displayed by the Huddersfield players. Not in a awful way.

"We were one of the best footballing teams in the league".

"I think he's a very good manager, but don't ask me more than that". You cannot play well all the time, you cannot win all the time, you cannot even be lucky all the time, so to lose again I think it is going to happen.
