Former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts has hit back at Jamie Carragher’s suggestion that Pochettino should leave Spurs for old Trafford, by asking the former Liverpool defender why Manchester United can’t go for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp instead.

Manchester United have appointed former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as an interim manager until the end of the season but speculation is running rife in the British press that the Manchester club have identified Pochettino as the man to take over next season.

Carragher in his column for the Telegraph had suggested that the Argentine has to take the Man Utd job if it is offered to him as the Red Devils will always be bigger than Spurs.

This suggestion clearly didn’t sit well with Spurs legend Roberts who took to Twitter to tweet out that Klopp will be perfect for Manchester United. Here’s how Roberts reacted to Carragher’s comments on Twitter:

Spurs fans will absolutely love Robert’s tweet as Carragher’s comments were certainly perceived as being disrespectful to the club who are currently 13 points clear of Manchester United in the table.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. As a Spurs fan, I hope Poch staying Spurs. Acid test will be whether Mauricio publicly rejects possibilities of a move out by stating he is fully committed to the Spurs project for the next several years. This will signal to players, fans and sponsors, not to mention agents and ManU and RM recruiters that they neehgd to look elsewhere. Levy will have to rise to the occasion by a combination of more cash flow via dilution of controlling group stakes with delta investors, new sponsors, better cost controls on the stadium project overrun (which he has been bad in), better merchandising to tap into global Spurs followers a la ManU, to up Poch’s wages (fortunately no agent, so pressure to cut a bonus not there), give him more power like Sir Alex or Wenger (which will need Levy to cede some of his own and mentor Poch on financials, a sign of a true leader) and get some important signings like extend Eriksen, Toby, Jan, get a Dembele replacement like N’dombole, etc.
