"The manager that helped him come to the first team, the manager that helped him develop in the best moment of his career, is the manager he doesn't forget, a manager he likes a lot, a manager that maybe one day he would like to be reunited again so for me the ideal words that show Luke Shaw's character in relation to the people he was happy with".

Spanish midfielder Herrera was candid in his assessment of United's 2-1 Premier League defeat to newly-promoted Huddersfield, questioning the team's passion and mentality.

After Pochettino had learned of United's approach to sign Dier last season - leaving him "destabilised" - the Tottenham manager was unhappy to see Mourinho speaking with the player personally in Portuguese. The first half display was slow and monotonous with United never really getting into the game but a much improved second half performance ensured a third straight group stage victory.

"I was happy because it shows dignity, character and intelligence to know the reason why we lost the match".

"I think with Southampton he achieved the impossible".

Sherwood, who was in charge of Tottenham Hotspur before Pochettino took over in 2014, believes that the Argentine - as well as Manchester City boss Guardiola - is better equipped to get the best out of players compared to Mourinho at Manchester United.

Philippe's center was confirmed Saturday, and the storm was reported to be moving north, expected to continue into the evening. When the system gains tropical storm strength it will be given the name Philippe and become the 16th named storm of the year.

"Maybe his ghost writer wants to make some money".

The 29-year-old will miss Tottenham's visit to Old Trafford on Saturday with a knee problem.

United may want to make some money on Marouane Fellaini if they can not agree a new deal.

Fellaini's initial deal at Old Trafford was due to expire this past summer but earlier this year United activated an option to an extend it by a further year - meaning his contract is up in the summer of 2018 and he is free to speak to clubs in two months time when the January window rolls around.

"Because Fellaini finishes his contract and Luke Shaw doesn't".

"Luke Shaw was just honest".
