Mauricio Pochettino has offered a response to comments made by Luke Shaw about their relationship.
Shaw revealed that he hopes to one day be reunited with Pochettino, who managed him at Southampton from January 2013 to the summer of 2014.
‘I do hope that I can play for him again one day,’ said the Manchester United left-back. ‘And I think he really wants me to play under him again.’
Pochettino was asked about the quotes at his press conference on Friday.
“The book is the book,” he said. And you need to put the feelings in context. It happened with me, when I was a young player. You enjoy time with some people, you always regret that.
“But that only explains a feeling that was in the past. For me, I think maybe you like to speak about that because you’re very surprised about the book.
“It’s difficult to find another book, to read all and try to be honest and explain everything and not lie. That’s so important.”
