Spurs boss Pochettino suggested in a recently released book that he was frustrated with Mourinho after he went out of his way to embrace Dier following Tottenham's game at Old Trafford last December.

The £30m defender signed an extension to his present £130,000 per week deal earlier this year and Old Trafford insiders believe the club could use the January window to try and secure him regular starts somewhere else until the end of the campaign, before looking again at his situation.
He is delighted that his player gave a candid and honest opinion on his former manager and feels it reveals a lot about the Manchester United defender's character.
Shaw was in his best United form when he broke his leg in September 2015 and he has failed to hold down a starting spot ever since.
Shaw has been on the sidelines under Jose Mourinho for almost a year.
Shaw has gone on to make just 2 appearances for the Red Devils so far this season, both substitute cameos in the Carabao Cup, with reports over recent days claiming that the relationship between the stopper and Jose Mourinho has been broken beyond fix.
Rose said in August that he wanted to move to a "northern team" to be closer to his mum.
