Mourinho: Shaw still has future at Man Utd

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he has a "very good" relationship with Jose Mourinho ahead of this weekend's clash with Manchester United.

This comes just days after Mourinho made a decision to give Shaw five minutes against Swansea in the League Cup.

'The fans want that, they've given Jose Mourinho a bit of time, the club have as well.

Pochettino claims that both men have now moved on from the incident and there is no rift between them, however, as Spurs attempt to return to winning ways following their midweek EFL Cup defeat to London rivals West Ham United.

The two sides, who are separated in their table only by goal difference, face each other at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"The manager that helped him to come to the first team, the manager that helped him to develop to the best moment of his career is a manager that he does not forget, he likes a lot and a manager who maybe one day he would like to be reunited again".

Shaw is yet to play for United in the Premier League this season, making two substitute appearances in the Carabao Cup.

'He used to call me his son.

Luke Shaw has stated that he hopes to play for Mauricio Pochettino again one day.

"I am always disappointed when a player, because he has a new manager, the new manager becomes the best and the old manager becomes very bad". He'd show me clips of my games and say, "You should do this better".

Asked if Shaw has a future at Manchester United, Mourinho said in a press conference: "Why not?"

"I just think l, normally, we have performances at home, normally we trust our game, and yes, the results we can say are positive at home".

The England global freely admits he wants to link up once more with Pochettino eventually, with the full-back even saying "I think he really wants me to play under him again".

"Eric, let's see, he'll have one more training session, but he is the only one I hope from the injured group that can be ready". Not I could have done better, but I should have done better, because he knows I can be better.
