What’s Pochettino doing having lunch with Fergie? Spurs boss spotted in London

first_img Pochettino has taken Tottenham to second place in the Premier League table this season 1 Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was spotted having lunch in central London with former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The pair were at Scotts of Mayfair, but Spurs officials are not worried about the meeting, which had been in the diary for some time. Pochettino recently revealed he has verbally agreed a new deal to remain at White Hart Lane, but the sight of the Argentine having lunch with the man who remains hugely influential at Old Trafford will worry many Spurs fans. The future of boss Louis van Gaal remains in the balance with qualification for next season’s Champions League hanging in the balance. Defeat by West Ham United last night means they will miss out on Europe’s elite competition next season – for the second time in three years – if rivals Manchester City beat or draw with Swansea on Sunday. Meanwhile Son Heung-min faces an anxious wait to find out if his club will grant his wish to play at the Olympic Games this summer.Son is eager to represent South Korea in Rio and is one his country’s star players but participation would seriously curtail his contribution for Spurs at the start of next season.Son, however, is keen to play in a competition that he skipped in 2012, choosing instead to concentrate on his club career at Hamburg.“We’re still waiting for the decision so I can’t say anything,” Son said.“It’s a very nice tournament and competition, and every player wants to go to play there.“I’ve played in the World Cup and Asian Cup and I haven’t played in the Olympics. We’ll see what happens.”last_img read more
