When the current Spurs manager was at Southampton, the team was struggling in the relegation zone.

They played Manchester United and it drew high praise from Ferguson

"Winning is the name of the game at this stage of the season," said the former boss.

"For the first 30 minutes I thought we were fantastic, we played really well. But in the second half Southampton have been the best team to play here this season.

"We were fortunate to win the game. They pushed on top of us and didn't give us any time on the ball."

It's a massive compliment from Ferguson.

Many Manchester United supporters were previously unhappy with how the club was run under Jose Mourinho, who enjoyed success in his first season, but his second year in charge saw a drop in form.

United got off to a poor start this season, and Mourinho expressed his desire for reinforcements at centre-backs - but the moves that were reported on the last day of the transfer window fell through, with just a few names coming through - the biggest being Fred.

Pochettino, by contrast, has had barely no money to spend yet he still managed to keep Spurs in the top four and winning big games.

Would you like to see Pochettino at Old Trafford as manager? Or is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the man to get United back on track on a long term basis?
