Pochettino explains Ferguson meeting

Sir Alex Ferguson did not discuss the possibility of Mauricio Pochettino becoming the new manager of Manchester United when the pair met for lunch on Tuesday, the Tottenham boss has revealed.

Ferguson and Pochettino were photographed leaving a restaurant together on Tuesday, sparking rumours that the Argentinian was being lined up to place Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford. It subsequently emerged that Pochettino was the instigator of the meeting and had informed Tottenham officials of his plans for the get-together.

While he has since signed a five-year contract with Tottenham, the meeting was raised during his weekly press conference with Pochettino and asked if Ferguson had discussed a potential move to Old Trafford.

"No," Pochettino replied. "Sir Alex Ferguson is someone from whom we can only learn. It was fantastic.

"It was a dream come true, because when I was young and I started my career as a manager always he was my inspiration, one of my references.

"When you can share two hours with a person that for me was one of the greatest managers in the world in the history of football, only you can enjoy it.

"I wanted to stop the time. But of course it was impossible."
