- Mourinho was appointed as Tottenham’s manager after Pochettino was sacked in December.
- ‘We have kept a good relationship,’ he says.
- Pochettino was once a managerial target for United before Ole got the permanent job.
Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino insists that he has no hard feelings for Jose Mourinho replacing him at the club.
Speaking to Goal, Pochettino opened up on his relationship with Jose and his thoughts on the Portuguese getting the Spurs job.
Pochettino explained: “It was a very nice bottle of French red wine for me and two Real Madrid kits. OK, these are for your kids to wear from now on.
“We have kept a good relationship since then and I am so happy he is at Tottenham, replacing me.
“I am happy as well to have left the club in the condition that we left it and for sure he is very grateful for the way that we helped to build the club, which is now his club.”
Mourinho was sacked by Man United in December 2018 after a string of bad results. Pochettino was then a favourite to succeed him at Old Trafford before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earned his spot in the managerial hot seat.
