In addition, he also targeted Pochettino's disappointing history of honours in comparison to United's Jose Mourinho, which reads 20-0 in the Portuguese boss' favour.
"Obviously, previous year we picked up a couple of trophies and I think the manager has instilled that in terms of his training preparations", he says.
He lifted it with United in 2016 but was sacked two days later and that is the mark of the club and shows what really matters for them.
Despite jose's down playing the possibility of branding the season being branded a failure should Man U fail to win the FA cup, some supporters of the side insist that the only way they can be happy for the season is to clinch the trophy after losing the premier league title to rival neighbours Manchester city.
"I think that's something the manager brings and we as the players feel that from the coaches and from him himself". But I believe we can compete very well next season. I don't think it was, but the other guys did 100 points.
The cup will keep them going of course, and obviously I am not saying they don't want to win it.

"If they do the same number of points it will be nearly impossible", Mourinho said at a news conference on Friday.
In some people's minds maybe the competition has been diminished since the emergence of the Champions League and Premier League, but to be involved in major cup finals is where you make your mark in the game and it's where you need to be. Now we are going to share with Manchester United.
You could argue the same for Spurs in some respects because, although they got beaten by a great side in City, they had been on a long unbeaten run [of 20 games in domestic competition] and maybe they were just starting to think they were better than they are. "This time is away but I don't see any advantage, for me it's the same as playing at Old Trafford".
Who will start for Manchester United when they take on Tottenham?
I am still expecting a tight game, though, because there is so much at stake. You have to beat teams like West Brom who are struggling for their lives.
Perhaps Sanchez's best display of the season came against Tottenham, but it was in an Arsenal shirt.
