The left-back featured under the Argentinian during their time at Southampton, where Shaw burst onto the scene while still a teenager.
Pochettino has since went on to enjoy success with Spurs, while his former player has endured a tough period since moving to Manchester United.
Shaw has suffered a strained relationship with Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho, and has struggled for game time under the Portuguese coach.
And that relationship may be about to nosedive even further, after the 22-year-old admitted he would like to play under Pochettino in the future.
“I do hope that I can play for him again one day”
Luke Shaw on Mauricio Pochettino
Shaw, in the epilogue of Guillem Balague’s Brave New World: Inside Pochettino’s Spurs, wrote: “I think with Southampton he achieved the impossible.
“We were one of the best footballing teams in the league.
“I do hope that I can play for him again one day. And I think he really wants me to play under him again.”
And the England star alluded to the fact life was simpler when he was at St. Mary’s.
“He used to call me his son, that’s how good our relationship was. I’ve had lots of ups and downs, but when I was with Pochettino it was only ever up, up, up,” he continued.
“He made me feel that I was the best. He’d show me clips of my games and say, ‘You should do this better’.
“Not in a horrible way. Not I could have done better, but I should have done better, because he knows I can be better.”
United welcome Spurs to Old Trafford this weekend.
