Pochettino stopped from answering questions about Manchester United job

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino was stopped from answering questions on speculation linking him to the Manchester United job.

After Jose Mourinho’s sacking, Pochettino was the first choice for United to replace him.

At Pochettino’s press conference on Thursday ahead of the game against Everton, questions on the subject were repeatedly shut down by the club’s press officer, who insisted the matter had already been discussed.

Cameras were then asked to be switched off as the reporter posing the questions stood his ground, with a debate that lasted just under two minutes.
