- Rose has revealed that Pochettino was mighty impressed with Harry Maguire when Spurs met Hull City in 2016.
- He believes that Spurs even tried to sign him after that performance.
- ‘Training with him for England, you couldn't get the ball off him,’ the left-back says of the United captain.
The current Man United captain then played for Hull City, but his performance left Pochettino in awe. Speaking to The Lockdown Tactics podcast, he said: “I remember we played Hull at White Hart Lane (in December 2016) and we won 3-0. Mauricio was manager and the gaffer was all over Harry (Maguire). I think they (Tottenham) were in for him.
“Once Poch took a liking to him I started to notice him straight away after that. It's been a great journey for him.
“Training with him for England, you couldn't get the ball off him. He's so good. He fully deserves to be Manchester United captain.”
