Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the reported meeting up of Mauricio Pochettino and Sir Alex Ferguson on Tuesday evening.
According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham head coach Pochettino and former Manchester United manager Ferguson had lunch in Mayfair.
It has also been reported that Jesus Perez, Tottenham's assistant head coach, was at the meeting as well.
Pochettino has been in charge of Tottenham since the summer of 2014, and he has done a remarkable job at White Hart Lane.
There should be no surprise that Ferguson, one of the greatest football managers in history, is an admirer of the former Southampton boss.
Tottenham fans, though, would be forgiven if they have reservations about this meeting. After all, The Sun reported only last month that Pochettino is a managerial candidate for the United job in the summer.
Louis van Gaal is in charge of United at the moment, but the team’s performances have not been great.
United and Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the meeting between Pochettino and Ferguson.

Sir Alex having lunch with Pochettino does not mean he's out next boss! He's had plenty of lunches with Guardiola #MUFC— Manchester United (@MufcLive247) May 11, 2016

Can't fault work Pochettino does in preparation. Spurs back in the CL and he's tapping up one of the best ever CL managers for advice #COYS— Timmy Tour (@TimmyTour) May 10, 2016
I think Pochettino is lunching with Sir Alex Ferguson because he wanted to tell Sir Alex whose team is better #COYS— Isak Edqvist (@isak_edqvist) May 10, 2016
