It wouldn’t be a Sunday unless the media were trying to unsettle Tottenham and today’s culprit is the Sunday Times.
They are running with a story claiming that Chelsea have added Mauricio Pochettino to their shortlist of potential managers and that Chelsea officials approached the Spurs boards at the end of February.
Pochettino was asked about such rumours in late January to which he responded: ‘We are supposed to receive the rumours. But I don’t care about that.
‘I always work for the present and the future. I’m very happy here. We’ve created after 18 months a very good group, with a strong basis for success in the future and I’m very happy.
‘My job is to be focused, not to hear rumours. The most important thing is that I’m focused on my job.
‘My focus is here, to try for success at Tottenham and to work hard.’
Pochettino has three and a half years to run on his five-year deal and you would like to think that Daniel Levy and co are smart enough to know that Poch is the man to continue to take our club forward.
We’ve worked hard to rebuild our structure, bringing in Poch’s trusted aides with the likes of Paul Mitchell and to create a team spirit which is the envy of the league.
So, Poch to Chelsea? Can you really see that happening?
