Mauricio Pochettino’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has been something which the press have tried their very best to muddy this season.
In December, Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth even tried to quiz the Spurs boss over possible links to the managerial hot seat at Manchester United following the departure of Jose Mourinho, only to be rightly shut down at a press conference by Tottenham’s head of communications Simon Felstein who was not prepared to witness the continuing speculation.
Real Madrid had also been mooted as a possible destination for the former Southampton boss, but this link died a death following the return of Zinedine Zidane.
Former Spurs midfielder Darren Anderton is expecting that Pochettino will remain on in his position as the manager at the North London outfit into next season.
Anderton believes it would be a big shock if the boss decided to call it quits and leave the club.
He told 888sport: “I hope Pochettino will still be there next season and if you ask me for my opinion, yes I think he will be. I’d be absolutely delighted if that proves to be the case because he has been so good for the football club.
“He’s a great guy who cares. He wants to be part of the process. I spoke to him at a dinner and we talked about his time at Southampton and he really did care and it really did hurt him to leave but he felt that Tottenham was too big to turn down. He loves it here and he loves working with the sort of players that Tottenham has.
“He wants the youngsters to work hard and improve as individuals and he puts in a lot of work on the training pitch. It’s meant that the club has gone from strength to strength and everybody is happy and the new stadium just adds to that. So for me it would be a great shock if Pochettino now decided it was time to move on.”
