Tottenham Hotspur are arguably in the midst of their darkest days under Mauricio Pochettino, just months after the Argentine led the club to their first-ever Champions League Final.
Spurs have yet to win a game so far in this year’s competition, throwing away a two goals lead to draw 2-2 away to Olympiacos in week one and getting embarrassed 7-2 at the hands of Bayern Munich in week two.
Tottenham have also already been knocked out of the Carabao Cup this season, probably their best chance for a piece of silverware to end the 11-year drought. Colchester United, a League Two outfit, managed to knock the Lilywhites out on penalties.
Spurs have not fared much better in the Premier League either, taking just three wins from eight games so far this season. That puts the Lilywhites down in ninth and a long way off Liverpool at the top who maintain a 100 per cent record.
Ex-Spurs man, Darren Bent, has now claimed that he thinks there has been a breakdown between Poch and Levy (Football Insider): “I’m not quite sure at the minute. Something just doesn’t seem to be quite right at the minute.
“There’s a breakdown somewhere, why there’s a breakdown I don’t know, but they’re not quite on the same page at the moment, which isn’t good.
“Spurs are quite a private organisation so it’s very rare you get these things coming out.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I disagree with this. I’m not sure that is where the problem lies. Pochettino and Levy seem to have regular meetings and are very straight-talking characters. I am sure that they have made their feelings very clear and are on the same page.
