Emery has a long friendship with Pochettino, honed as both managed in La Liga and even recommended him for the head coach position at Valencia when he departed.
United are now sixth in the Premier League table, 11 points off the top four.
"After almost five years a lot of rumours have happened in my position as manager of Tottenham". "I have a very good relationship with him and it is sad news It's not my business what happens at another club".
"So at this moment in time, I see him - and people will suggest that he has not won a trophy yet at Tottenham, but with a net spend of -£29m, or something over the last four years, he could not have done more". I think Tottenham creates more rumours in the last four-and-a-half years than any other big club.
The ex-Argentina global also expressed his sympathy for Mourinho, sending his best wish to his "very good friend". "I understand you're interested because there are a lot of rumours but look, I'm happy here, trying to give my best to the club".

Jose Mourinho left and Mauricio Pochettino enjoy a good relationship
With sources telling ESPN FC that Pochettino is United's top choice to become their next permanent manager in the summer, the rumours are set to continue for the rest of the season. No one knows. The most important is to enjoy the journey.
"Manchester United have been crawling along on their hands and knees - it's been unpleasant, unsavoury, it's impacting the players who look completely demoralised, in some games disinterested - so inconsistent". The players doesn't care too much about what happened about the rumours.
Pochettino has emerged as bookmakers' favourite to succeed Mourinho, with the Argentine viewed as a suitable long-term candidate to deliver attacking football and develop young talent at Old Trafford. "If you are going to be the most successful manager in global football with Pep Guardiola, you are going to have a dip".
"It's a very big test and also they are coming with a very big ambition against us because after the first derby they need to show us and their supporters a big performance". If we consider that he can cope with 90 minutes, maybe he can play.
"The first game past year was tight because it was the first group game but we felt we had to win it. We're suffering across the Premier League - there are a lot of injuries - because the players have suffered a lot".
