Although we are only four games into the new Premier League season, there is already talk of a mini-crisis behind the scenes at Tottenham.
After Tottenham’s defeat to Newcastle United two weeks ago, several reports were suggesting that all was not well behind the scenes at the club and some even claiming that Pochettino was close to leaving.
Thankfully some of that speculation has been put to rest following firm responses from Pochettino (The Guardian) as well as Tottenham’s hard-fought draw in the North London Derby.
Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has accused the media of hyping up the crisis and suggested that Tottenham will be fine now that the European transfer window has shut.
Speaking to talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Redknapp said, “I think it [talk of an apparent crisis at Spurs] is probably being hyped up.
“Poch is saying he’s glad the window is closing today, he knows now where Eriksen is going to be and it looks like he’s certainly going to be Tottenham.
“So I would think he can now get on with it, have a settled squad and know who’s going to be available and who isn’t.”
The 72-year-old also praised Spurs chairman Daniel Levy for the work he has done at the club and made a bold assertion about where the Lilywhites will finish this season.
He added, “Daniel runs the club and he’s made a great job of it. They’ve got a great stadium, a fantastic training ground and they’ve got a good team, a really good team of good players.
“I don’t see them finishing any worst than third again this year. They’ll be there and maybe this will be their year to win a cup.
“There’s nothing wrong at Tottenham, they’re in great shape.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Tottenham under Pochettino have tended to start the season a little slowly and build momentum a couple of months in. However, some of the fans’ concerns are entirely legitimate as the team’s record in the Premier League in 2019 is extremely poor. Let’s hope now that the squad is settled, the team will start producing the results on the pitch following the international break.
