Mauricio Pochettino says he hopes Tottenham win a trophy under Jose Mourinho.

The former Spurs manager was a guest on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football coverage of Leicester City’s victory at Leeds United this evening.

Before the game he spoke about his potential return to football, joking that he hopes to have a hair cut when he eventually gets a new job – watch a clip of that moment here.

Later the focus turned to analysing his five years at Tottenham.

Pochettino said he was “proud” of what he achieved in north London despite not winning a trophy – he came close, of course, by being involved in two Premier League title races and reaching the Champions League final.

And the Argentine now hopes his old team can go one step further by winning something with Mourinho in charge.

“I hope in the future with Jose they have the possibility [to win a trophy],” Pochettino said.

It is typical of Pochettino to still be hopeful for Spurs to be successful even though he is no longer in charge.

The 48-year-old also mentioned the fact that Mourinho is a good friend of his and treated him well when the pair faced off as the managers of Real Madrid and Espanyol in La Liga.

Perhaps it won’t be long until the pair go head to head once again in the Premier League.
