The left back signed a £65,000 a week deal last September and feels he has "one last" big contract in his career at 27-years-old - but Sportsmail's Carragher mirrored the words used by Rose upon learning some signings made under Daniel Levy.
The club, which came in second in the Premier League last season, ensuring a Champions League spot for the days to come, are the only team from the Premier League to have not signed a player in the summer window so far. Pochettino said in comments published by British newspapers on Saturday.
Pochettino is happy to draw a line under the controversy but pointed to the achievements of Rose' England colleagues Eric Dier and Dele Alli to underline the folly of the full-back's stance.
Manchester Unted should not target Tottenham Hotspurs Danny Rose despite rumours linking the left-back to the club when they have other priorities to cover.
"You can see the statement but at the same time I was a player and sometimes after seven months of not playing you are a bit frustrated".
With the likes of Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli as well as the aforementioned Alderweireld, Dier and Kane, Tottenham still have an impressive side - but Martin Keown believes that it's actually playmaker Christian Eriksen who is Tottenham's key player heading into the new season. But the players are calm and the club is calm. "This was important and good", Pochettino said.
"It was his opinion and then he understood that maybe he needed to apologise to us and that is very good for him and the club". Tottenham indicated that they wanted £50 million for each of their full backs when it became clear last season...
Rose has since apologised and Pochettino refuses to let the controversy distract him from leading Tottenham's title challenge.
This season will be massive for Shaw as another stop-start season like last season for him could spell the end for him, but he did try his best to work his way into the team and put an end to his fitness problems to establish himself as an actual consistent starter for United, he most certainly has the ability to do so and would be a much better option than splashing out a huge amount of money on another player. With the players we have we can compete. "He had a couple of bad games towards the end of last season and if Spurs are to push the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City all the way, he can not afford to have a single off day", he added.
