Return of 'encyclopedia' Ferguson massive for United: Pochettino

Poaching Pochettino from Tottenham could be a tall order for Manchester United

Meanwhile, Rashford has scored in three of the four games he's played under Solskjaer and is nearly certain to start against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Ferguson reportedly gave a rousing speech to United's first-team squad after being invited back by Solskjaer recently - his first appearance at the training ground since emergency surgery for a bleed on the brain last May.

United have won all five of Solskjaer's matches in charge at Old Trafford.

"Daniel is not an easy person to do business with", Pochettino said.

"For me it wasn't hard - I think it was more hard for him than me. I was with Tony Jimenez, my goalkeeping coach, we were then at Nou Camp in 1999", Pochettino told a media conference.

"You always adapt to any opposition and we're playing one of the best teams in the league, so of course, we've got to be aware of their strengths", he added.

"I negotiate harder when I'm talking about my staff".

"Today the Premier League is so competitive and for Tottenham to go to, I don't know, Southampton and sign a player like they used to do, like with Gareth Bale, today it's so hard", he said.

"It's not a big deal what happened".

"Today it's so hard to do business in between the English clubs because in the end the market has changed a lot".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that a week of warm weather training in Dubai will ensure his Manchester United stars are fit and firing for the biggest test of his caretaker reign yet, against Tottenham.

Asked what qualities had enabled Pochettino to do so well at Spurs, Solskajer said: "I can't really comment because I've been sat on the outside too much".

"It is fantastic news because he is football, Sir Alex means football".

"I think to be involved again, I think for him and for Manchester sure it's a massive important thing". Of course I sent [my best wishes] and I can not hide my admiration and my relationship with him.

Manchester United's defence may have been leaky this season, but it could have been even worse without David de Gea, whose reputation as one of the world's best remains intact as he beats World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris into the team.
