"Of course we're going to be in a different club, because it's not the same to play in Wembley for the last two years almost".

"I have good memories because I remember when he scored after 90 minutes at the Camp Nou, I was with Tony Jimenez, my goalkeeping coach - we were there at the Camp Nou in 1999", Pochettino said.

"I think it's fantastic news because he is football", Pochettino told reporters at his news conference on Friday.

United's caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken advice from Sir Alex Ferguson since taking up his position, and Pochettino is pleased to hear that the 77-year-old Scot - who underwent emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage last year - is back involved.

Manchester United used to take players from Tottenham fairly regularly, having signed Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov, but Pochettino believes such transfers are becoming increasingly rare.

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.

"I think to be involved again, I think for him and for Manchester sure it's a massive important thing".

Pochettino said he was present on one of the greatest nights in Ferguson's 27 glittering years as United boss - the 1999 Champions League final at Barcelona's Nou Camp when substitute Solskjaer scored a stoppage-time victor against Bayern Munich.

"We were in front, in the same level, but in front of the presidents' area".

"When Solskjaer scored, we were shouting, celebrating, I don't know why". Because in that moment we were neutral. "But the atmosphere was awesome".

Tottenham could find themselves nine points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool when they kick-off against United on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils finished second and without a trophy under Jose Mourinho last season. For me, if there was one person that was easy to do business with it was Daniel, personally. "We need to give him credit because when he was first here 18 years ago it was a different club, not fighting relegation but mid-table". Now it is at the top.
