Video: Spurs Press Officer Blocks Pochettino from Man Utd Questions in Seriously Awkward Encounter

Tottenham‘s head of media relations was forced to block questions about Manchester United from reporters towards Mauricio Pochettino this afternoon, in what transpired to be a pretty awkward encounter.

Following the sacking of Jose Mourinho on Tuesday, Spurs coach Pochettino is the current favourite to land the Old Trafford gig on a permanent basis in the summer, and has been repeatedly linked with the Red Devils in the media for many months now.

However, when Sky Sports broadcaster Dharmesh Sheth tried to quiz the Argentine earlier today, he was quickly stopped in his tracks by the North London club’s head of communications, Simon Felstein, who repeatedly insisted he would not have the club’s press conferences dominated by questions over United:

As you can see, it was a pretty tricky few moments for all involved but at least it seemed to keep Pochettino mildly amused.

Do you think he’ll end up as the next Manchester United manager?
