Bad for Man United: Mauricio Pochettino drops hint over Tottenham future

Tottenham’s new stadium is open

Sunday was a historic day for Tottenham.

After months of delays, Spurs have finally hosted their first competitive match at their new stadium.

Tottenham U18s opened the new ground with a 3-1 win over Southampton.

A little under 30,000 supporters showed up at the event.

Mauricio Pochettino & Man United

Over the weekend rumours popped up again linking Mauricio Pochettino witha possible summer move to Man United.

The Mirror reported that Spurs are nervous that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn’t yet been given the United job.

Man United lost to Arsenal and Wolves before the international break.

Yet, after Sunday, Tottenham fans are buoyed that Pochettino will remain put.

That’s after the Argentine gave a speech at halftime during the Southampton game. Pochettino said:

I think it is unbelievable, it is so difficult to explain in only a few words.

We all feel the same, so excited, I got the same feeling when we left White Hart Lane on the last day, we were crying and now in the first day in the new stadium we feel the same emotion.

We need to cry because our dream became true and we have to say thank you, first of all, to Daniel Levy because in 2001 when he started to believe in that dream.

That doesn’t sound like a man who is ready to switch Spurs for Man United.

Tottenham 3 – Southampton 1

17-year old Spurs winger J’Neil Bennett etched his name in the history books scoring the first goal at the new ground.

Harvey White and Dilan Markanday also scored for the Lillywhites.
