Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed his appreciation for the Manchester United squad, after they thumped his team at Wembley.Pochettino who is tipped for the Red Devils job, noted that: “Here we are talking about Manchester United, who have an unbelievable squad,” he said. “On the bench (Romelu) Lukaku, Alexis (Sanchez]… you talk about the quality of the squad – it’s unbelievable. But for me that’s not important. It’s more important to be focused on my team. We did everything to try to win but that is football. Sometimes you don’t deserve too much and you win.”Sanchez was not even among United’s 18 yesterday, inadvertently underlining the point Pochettino was making. When United sought to freshen things up in attack, they turned to £75million signing Lukaku. As Spurs chased an equaliser, they threw on Fernando Llorente.The Argentine added: “Four and a half years we are playing every week and testing the depth of the squad, but I never complain and I am not going to complain. I think we are going to have players back from injury and we are going to find the way to play in the best condition and be competitive, like we were competitive in the last four years and a half.”“In football, you cannot avoid the risk,” said Pochettino. “People criticise me when we play Harry Kane 15 or 20 minutes at Tranmere and I told you, the injury can appear when you don’t know when. And yesterday, (Kane is injured) in the last action of the game. First of all, we need to assess him and Moussa and hope it is not a big issue and then we are going to try and find a way to play if we are to lose them. (We) hope it is not going to be a long period.”Photo Credit: Getty
