- Jose Mourinho was sacked as Manchester United boss in December
- He was subsequently replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on interim capacity
- Spurs' boss Mauricio Pochettino remains United's top choice for the United job
Former Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has aimed a subtle attack on Spurs' manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino reportedly remains United's top choice for the Old Trafford job following the sack of Mourinho back in December.
However, the Portuguese tactician believes Pochettino must change his stance on what represents success in football ‘the day he starts winning trophies’.
Pochettino is understood to have suggested that finishing in the top four of the English Premier League and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League is as good as winning a silverware.
But speaking to beIN Sports, Mourinho observed that he disagrees with the Spurs' manager when it comes to determining success as a football manager.
"He’s different than me," Mourinho stated.
"He thinks different than me or the day he starts winning trophies he changes his communication," he further explained.

The former Chelsea manager was, however, quick to admit that he likes Pochettino as a person and coach.
Be that as it may, the Argentine tactician who is rated as one of the most talented managers in the world is yet to win a major trophy, but has guided Spurs to three consecutive Champions League qualifications.
He is United's preferred choice to take over at Old Trafford at the end of the season as Mourinho's permanent replacement at the club.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney wants Mauricio Pochettino as Red Devils manager for 2019-20 campaign.
According to the Daily Mail citing ESPN FC., the former Three Lions captain, who currently plies his trade in Major League Soccer (MLS), believes the Argentine tactician is the right man for the job.
