But Lallana is confident Pochettino will want to hang around at Saints for a while.
"Of course, that's going to happen.
"He's a talented manager and I think he was linked with a number of jobs before he took this job.
"Yeah, he definitely has the quality to manage a Manchester United, but not yet!
"Knowing the manager, he's passionate and he'll want to complete the job that he's started here. He's very loyal, you can tell that by working with him.
"The club's privileged to have him here, and you can tell he's really enjoying it. He's really enthusiastic about working, and that kind of attitude is rubbing off on all the players."
