first_imgFormer Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp insists Mauricio Pochettino – one of his successors at White Hart Lane – would not be tempted to leave Spurs for Manchester United.Tottenham are flying this season having lost just one league game since the opening day, while United in contrast are stuttering and languish three points behind Pochettino’s charges.Louis van Gaal, the Red Devils manager, has subsequently seen his job come under intense scrutiny, with reports this week emerging that Pochettino had been identified as a potential replacement.But Redknapp, speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, can’t envisage those circumstances unfolding.“I wouldn’t think he would want to leave,” he said.“Spurs is a good club, they have a fantastic training ground. It’s one of the big clubs in the country so I don’t think he’d want to be leaving.”United have won just once in their last seven league games, scoring just five goals in that period, and also crashed out of the Champions League and League Cup prematurely this season.As a result, discontent has been rife amongst the Old Trafford faithful who have grown frustrated at their side’s lack of attacking verve, and Redknapp believes the current squad is a far cry from previous years.He added: “I don’t generally think they’ve got players that can get you off your seat at the moment. There’s no spark at the end of it.“It hasn’t been exciting but they haven’t got that many exciting players. Over the years they had nothing but exciting players.“You knew you were going to get battered from the first minute but at the moment they haven’t got those players.”last_img read more
