Sheringham, who played for both clubs, wrote for the Daily Mail: "I left Tottenham to join Manchester United in 1997 for one reason — ambition. The club was settling for mediocrity at the time and I did not like it. It was as simple as that.
"Now Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with United — but he has no reason to leave. He is at an ambitious club now, a club that is going places.
"Tottenham are on the up, on and off the field. They have a tremendous team and in Harry Kane they have one of the best strikers in the world. The club have Kane and Kane has Pochettino."
