Paul Pogba focused on Manchester United despite transfer speculation

While the Italian has warned his counterpart there can be only victor in the final, he insists they have buried the hatchet.

"We should ask ourselves why there is too many critics on all of us?" he said after the 2-1 victory over Spurs, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

"I am disappointed", said Pochettino, before turning his attention to the battle to finish in the Premier League's top four and qualify for Europe's elite competition next season.

Speaking after helping United book a Wembley trip on May 19, he explained that there was no disgruntlement between himself and his boss: "I have no problem with him, and I don't think he has a problem [with me]".

"We are talking about two managers with strong characters, two winners".

"In the way we decide to go, Tottenham is completely different to others... to win a trophy is not easy".

"For sure, in my mind, I can tell you that we played last season in the final and arrived as favourites against Arsenal", he added.

"The reality is it has been very, very hard for me", he said.

So, would the 2017/18 season be marked as a success if United secured their 13th FA Cup trophy at Wembley? I think the fact we stayed together for five days was good. "We have to keep going like that".

There was even talk that Mourinho has told United to put Pogba up for sale, just days after City manager Pep Guardiola said he had been offered the chance to sign the midfielder by his agent in January.
