Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is the Premier League's best manager. 

The Labour MP for Tottenham, David Lammy, has revealed that the Scot told him that Spurs have the best manager in the division. 

Pochettino has enjoyed a fine season in north London as he continues to increase his reputation in the game.

After proving his credentials at Espanyol and Southampton, Pochettino moved to Spurs in 2014 and hasn't looked back since. 

Spurs currently sit in second place in the Premier League table and are in with a chance of claiming success in the Europa League and FA Cup. 

Premier League's best 

Unsurprisingly, Ferguson rates Pochettino extremely highly. The Labour MP for Tottenham stated, as per the Manchester Evening News: "About six weeks ago, I sat next to Alex Ferguson at a dinner in support of grassroots football abroad," Lammy said.

"He said to me, 'I think you guys have got the best manager in the Premier League.'"

Pochettino linked to United 

With Louis van Gaal enduring a tricky season in Manchester - the Red Devils currently sit in fifth position in the table - Pochettino has been linked with the top job at Old Trafford recently. 

It's not entirely surprising; the revered manager has found the perfect balance at Spurs, playing exciting football while securing positive results more often that not. 

At United, it has been anything but exciting for far too long. United's performances have picked up of late, but they have been dire to watch throughout the course of the season. 

Pochettino may well be linked to United, but would he really swap north London for Manchester at this stage? Things appear to be going so well for him right now, so would it be worth the risk?
